Judge Neil Gorsuch will return to the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday for more questioning. This time, senators will receive 20 minutes each instead of 30, so the overall length of the hearing is expected to be shorter than Tuesday’s session.
Judge Neil Gorsuch, a federal appeals court judge from Colorado, is on Capitol Hill today for confirmations hearings for a seat on the Supreme Court. Gorsuch was nominated by President Trump to fill the seat left open by the death of Antonin Scalia and has broad support among Republicans.
It’s a chance for Senate Democrats to take a stand against the Trump administration, and express their anger that Republicans blocked a hearing for President Barack Obama’s selection for the seat, Judge Merrick Garland of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
Monday is the beginning of four days of hearings. Follow along.
