CRP Statement on Gorsuch Confirmation

Following the U.S. Senate’s vote to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, Constitutional Responsibility Project Communications Director Josh Dorner released the following statement:

“Senate Republicans went to extraordinary and unprecedented lengths to confirm a Supreme Court nominee whose record demonstrates a fundamental lack of respect for our core constitutional values of liberty, equality, and justice for all. And they did so at the behest of a president who has also disrespected our Constitution and the civil rights of millions of people in this country. This shameful partisan power grab will cast a long shadow over the Senate and the Supreme Court itself.”
