DOJ Sued Over Records on High Court Nominee Gorsuch

"I have no idea what we're going to find, but he was in the DOJ during tumultuous times", Roth said.

The American people, including 102,182 Utah County voters, made their voices heard by electing Trump to the presidency.

Gorsuch served just over a year as deputy assistant attorney general before President George W. Bush nominated him to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in Denver.

Though Trump only nominated Neil Gorsuch of the 10th Circuit on January 31, Washington-based Fix the Court says its request for records on Gorsuch was already over a month old at that point. "I will base my decision on a full examination of Judge Gorsuch's judicial record and his responses to senators' questions".

The Southern Baptist Convention entity released the letter February 1, a day after President Trump announced his nomination of Gorsuch, a federal appeals court judge the last 10 years. "I don't have confidence Judge Gorsuch is that nominee". If Judge Gorsuch is confirmed, Utahns can rest assured that our most fundamental freedoms, including religious liberty and the rights of the unborn, will continue to take precedence in our nation's highest court.

He is committed to upholding the separation of powers by respecting the distinct roles of each branch of government. But make no mistake: "If we do hold the line with 60 votes, Mitch McConnell will change the rules the next day", she said.

The Gorsuch confirmation hearings are scheduled to begin March 20.

Walker and Schimel both spoke out at a Wednesday news conference in the state Capitol in favor of the Senate confirming Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

That means senators have a little less than a month to do right by Merrick Garland, the traditions of the Senate and the U.S. Constitution.
