Fast forward to today, when the Senate Judiciary Committee stands poised to vote on Gorsuch’s nomination and pass it along for a final vote to the full Senate, where the threat of a filibuster stopping his confirmation looms, the only guarantee is that negative headlines are certain for the Trump White House and Republican lawmakers who promised a much-needed easy win for the new administration’s first 100 days.
On Jan. 31, President Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch, a 10th Circuit Court of Appeals judge, to the Supreme Court to fill the seat left vacant after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.
