Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told his colleagues in the Senate yesterday that he believes the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch should be delayed while President Trump is being investigated by the FBI!

On Monday, FBI Director James Comey told Congress that the FBI is “investigating Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, and that includes any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian Government.”

Democrat “delay” tactics, including a threatened filibuster, are smokescreens to divert from the fact that Judge Gorsuch is an outstanding nominee and has handled himself extremely well in the confirmation hearings.

+ + Judge Neil Gorsuch displays an exemplary understanding of the Constitution.

Judge Gorsuch’s answer to Sen. Grassley’s (R-Iowa) question regarding the Constitution’s separation of powers may be among the highlights of his testimony, particularly following eight years of the Obama administration’s egregious overreach of the executive branch’s authority.

Here is what Judge Gorsuch had to say in response to the senator’s question:

“You have in Article I, the people’s representatives make the law. That’s your job. And I don’t think it’s an accident that the framers put Article I first. Your job comes first, to make the law.Article II, the president’s job, is to faithfully execute your laws.

And our job, Article III, down at the bottom, is to make sure that the cases and controversies of the people are fairly decided.

And if those roles were confused, and power amalgamated, the Founders worried that that would be the very definition of tyranny. And you can see why.

Judges would make pretty rotten legislators. We’re life-tenured, right? You can’t get rid of us. It only takes a couple of us to make a decision — or nine, or 12, depending on the court. That would be a pretty poor way to run a democracy.

And at the same time, with respect, legislators might not make great judges, because they’re answerable to the people.  And when you come to court with a case or a controversy about past facts, you want a neutral, rigidly neutral – fair, scrupulously fair, decision-maker. You want somebody who’s going to put politics aside.

So the separation of powers, I don’t think has lost any of its genius over 200 years. In fact, it’s proven it.”

+ + Liberty Counsel enthusiastically supports the nomination and confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court!
