Trump’s Supreme Court pick attends confirmation hearings

Donald Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee arrives at the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday (March 20) where he will face tough scrutiny at a Senate confirmation hearing, with Democrats seeking to make the case that Neil Gorsuch is a pro-business, social conservative insufficiently independent of the Republican president.

Gorsuch, a cool-headed and amiable conservative federal appeals court judge from Colorado, likely will try to engage members of the Senate Judiciary Committee without being pinned down on specifics that could trip up his nomination to the lifetime post.

The court’s ideological balance is at stake. If Gorsuch, nominated by Trump on Jan. 31, is confirmed by the Senate, as expected, he would restore a narrow 5-4 conservative majority on the court
