John Elway backs Gorsuch for Supreme Court

John Elway backs Gorsuch for Supreme Court

Another student, Will Hauptman, disputed Sisk's interpretation of the events, writing in a separate letter to the judiciary committee that "Although Judge Gorsuch did discuss some of the topics mentioned in the letter, he did not do so in the manner described".

Speaking publicly for the first time since President Donald Trump nominated him on January 31, Gorsuch defended his record as judge in the face of criticism of his rulings by committee Democrats. "My decisions have never reflected a judgment about the people before me - only my best judgment about the law and facts at issue in each particular case", the nominee said. Cruz finally threw his support behind Trump after getting the nominee to pledge he would only pick his Supreme Court nominee from a list of 21 judges that included Gorsuch. "If judges were just secret legislators, declaring not what the law is but what they would like it to be, the very idea of a government by the people and for the people would be at risk", Gorsuch said. He also stressed the importance the Supreme Court plays in the expansion, or retraction of individual rights.

Judge Neil Gorsuch defended his judicial record on the first day of his confirmation hearing, preempting attacks by Democrats who accused him of being insensitive to the human side of his cases.

"What this moment in our history and our nation's history calls for is a nominee whose experience demonstrates an ability to set aside rigid views in favor of identifying common ground and crafting strong consensus opinions", Franken said, adding that President Barack Obama's nominee of liberal Judge Merrick Garland fit that description. The courts are supposed to be above politics - a point Gorsuch himself stressed repeatedly during his opening statement later Monday.

Do you think it's a bit over the top for simply sending an image? "It's what's called epileptogenic - something that triggers seizures".

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, of Kentucky, has expressed confidence that the Gorsuch nomination will slide through and has consistently expressed a distaste over invoking what has come to be known as the nuclear option - changing rules by a simple majority vote, freeing the nomination from a potential filibuster.

Seeming to acknowledge that the outcome was not in question, Sen.

The reports also show Gorsuch's rulings have allowed schools to use force and to isolate students with disabilities, despite studies showing that these students, especially students of color, are disproportionately subjected to the practice in schools. "He's going to keep you busy".

"Given today's bombshell remarks by Director James Comey confirming publicly for the first time that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is actively investigating ties between the Trump campaign and Russia-and Russia's intervention in the 2016 election-the Senate Judiciary Committee must immediately pause any consideration of Judge Gorsuch's nomination until the truth can come out". If approved by the Senate, Mr Gorsuch would restore a narrow 5-4 conservative majority on the Supreme Court. Each of the members of the judiciary committee is making opening remarks before they get to the direct questions of Gorsuch. Arizona was represented on the committee by Sen.
