For the executive to ensure those laws are faithfully enforced.

Democrats claimed that he has found in favour of corporations over "the little guy" during that time, while Republicans credit him with an intelligent and straightforward approach of interpreting the law as it is, not as anyone would wish it to be. The Court affirmed my judgment with the support of Justices Thomas and Sotomayor-while Justices Stevens and Scalia dissented.

A 2016 graduate of the University of Colorado Law School alleges that Supreme Court justice nominee Neil Gorsuch once explained to his class that "many women" manipulate companies to receive maternity leave-only to leave their jobs after they've availed themselves of the benefits.

"She has relationships with every single senator, and she's a former prosecutor and a lawyer, so she obviously knows her way around the law", Levesque said. If I thought that were true I'd hang up the robe.

Hatch said when taking his seat on the appeals court, Gorsuch swore to administer justice without respect to persons and to impartially discharge his judicial duties.

"I am concerned when I hear that Judge Gorsuch is an originalist and a strict constructionist".

Neil Gorsuch, who Trump has tapped to succeed Antonin Scalia on the nation's high court, will go before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week.

Based on his record, it is clear Judge Gorsuch would serve as a rubber stamp for the President who appointed him. Grassley opened the hearing with a statement where he talked about the U.S. Constitution, saying its most important feature is the separation of powers.

Sen. Michael Bennet, a Colorado Democrat, said while he was upset Garland was not considered, "Two wrongs never make a right", and said Democrats should not obstruct Gorsuch the way Republicans obstructed Garland. "I didn't believe that", Graham said. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. "It isn't enough to do it in the privacy of my office or our colleagues behind our closed doors".
