Trump's trash talk on judges makes trouble for Gorsuch

Trump's trash talk on judges makes trouble for Gorsuch”

The press secretary said Trump "is going to speak his mind" and that the press corps didn't express "similar concern" when President Barack Obama commented during a State of the Union address on a Supreme Court decision in the Citizens United case.

Donnelly said in a statement, "We had a productive and wide-ranging discussion on preventing the outsourcing of American jobs, addressing the opioid abuse epidemic and we also talked about Supreme Court nominee, Judge Gorsuch".

"We could be entering a situation where one party consistently blocks nominees of the other party, waiting its turn to take over the White House", says Mr. Gormley. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Tuesday that she was impressed with Gorsuch after her own meeting with him Monday.

Republicans expect the confirmation process for Gorsuch, a federal appellate judge in Denver who was nominated by Trump on January 31, to take several weeks.

Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska revealed even stronger comments by Gorsuch when they met.

In a Twitter post he disputed Senator Blumenthal's account of the conversation and sought to revive a years-old controversy over the his military service during the Vietnam War era. But as nearly every judge in the country lines up in defiance to Trump's posturing, and in fact begins to resist it for its own sake, it becomes ever harder for Neil Gorsuch to avoid wading in to this fight.

About one in five Americans who voted in last November's election said that Supreme Court appointments wer his constituency by this offer. would risk alienating part ofe "the most important factor" in their choice; and more than half of those who selected that factor voted for Mr. Trump.

Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch made it clear with Sen.

Gorsuch has not made any public comment on the matter. "What he is doing is criticizing a judge for what he believes to be a failure to follow the law properly".

"I asked him about the "so-called judges" comment because we don't have so-called judges or so-called presidents or so-called senators", Sasse said on MSNBC. And this is a guy who kind of welled up with some energy and he said any attack on any of, I think his term to me was brothers or sisters of the robe, is an attack on all judges.

Malloy said the president has the wrong approach with social media.

Robart had issued a nationwide stay on parts of Trump's executive order temporarily banning travel into the U.S. from seven majority-Muslim nations while the USA reviews its vetting procedures. The order also halted the flow of refugees for 120 days.

Over the weekend, Trump fired off a series of tweets during which he called US District Judge James Robart - appointed by President George W. Bush - a "so-called" judge.

Because of expected Democratic procedural maneuvers, Republicans will likely need the support of 60 out of the Senate's 100 members to move to a confirmation vote on Gorsuch.

The notion that Mr. Schumer and other Democrats are interested in preserving the judicial independence established in our Constitution is risible.

"I told him how abhorrent Donald Trump's invective and insults are toward the judiciary". Furthermore, he stated that he had "no doubt that if confirmed, Judge Gorsuch would help restore confidence in the rule of law".

Blumenthal misrepresented his career and claimed he had served in Vietnam before confessing to reporters in 2010 that he had "misspoken".
