U.S. Supreme Court’s ideological balance at stake in confirmation fight

U.S. Supreme Court’s ideological balance at stake in confirmation fightBy Lawrence Hurley and Andrew Chung WASHINGTON (Reuters) – When President Donald Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch is sworn in for his Senate confirmation hearing on Monday, Democrats will make the case that he is a pro-business, social conservative insufficiently independent of the president. In a bid to place hurdles in the way of Gorsuch’s expected confirmation by the Republican-controlled Senate, Democrats on the judiciary committee have said they will probe him on several fronts based mainly on his record as a federal appeals court judge and a Justice Department appointee under former President George W. Bush.
