"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".

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.
