The Gorsuch Hearing: Nuts and Bolts

DOJ Docs Raise Questions About Gorsuch's Views on Torture and Executive Power

"I look forward to having Neil Gorsuch, one of our own from the great state of Colorado, as the next Supreme Court Justice".

In a letter made public Monday morning, Denver Broncos GM John Elway urged the members of the Senate judiciary committee to confirm Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.

He began with a recollection of when President Barack Obama's court nominees, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, were up for confirmation.

If Gorsuch is confirmed, he will re-establish a narrow conservative majority on the nation's highest court. Judicial independence is one of the ideals that "enlivens [Gorsuch's] body of work", Grassley said in his opening statement on Monday.

Smolla said one comment by Senator Lindsey Graham of SC stood out to him.

The fourth and final day of the hearings, Thursday, will feature outside witnesses, usually former colleagues and advocacy groups who will testify for or against Gorsuch.

Later in his address, Coons listed the types of cases Gorsuch would preside on, such as executive power, affirmative action, intellectual property, partisan gerrymandering, racial bias in the courtroom, and reproductive rights.

Republicans have praised the federal appeals court judge as a brilliant jurist who would continue in the conservative mold of the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who he's vying to succeed. "The Supreme Court is too important for us not to find a way to end our destructive gridlock and bitter partisanship", Bennet said.

Democrats continued to criticize the GOP for refusing to consider President Barack Obama's nomination of appeals court judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February of past year.

The most recent justice not confirmed was Merrick Garland.

"I have not seen that the rights of minorities are a priority for you", Democratic Sen. 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. It's unclear whether Republicans will have those votes, meaning Democrats have the ability to block the nomination.

In addition, the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Education Association have also expressed concern about Gorsuch's record on disability rights issues, particularly in regard to cases involving students with disabilities.

Congressional Democrats have been facing major pressure from the left, as the Times notes, to exact revenge for the Republicans' unprecedented obstruction of Garland's nomination past year, and it remains to be seen if they have the will to filibuster Gorsuch's nomination.

Gorsuch can expect a 10-hour grilling on Capitol Hill Tuesday.

Flake's opening statements were complimentary of the nominee.
