Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) praises President Trump's selection of Neil Gorsuch to be his Supreme Court nominee and discusses his record. He also defends Republicans' decision to block Judge Merrick Garland's nomination in the last days of the Obama administration, saying they followed precedent set by Democrats. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) then calls for the Senate to maintain its 60-vote threshold for Supreme Court confirmation, saying that if a candidate can't meet that threshold "then the problem was not with the Senate, but with the nominee." He goes on to criticizes what he says are Judge Gorsuch's commitments to corporate interests. close
