Gorsuch confirmed to US Supreme Court, 54-45

Gorsuch confirmed to US Supreme Court, 54-45, by Ed Morrissey.

Now that he’s been confirmed, Gorsuch will get the weekend to wrap up his affairs. He will be sworn in on Monday and will join the court officially at that time. …

Trump has carte blanche on his next opening. Democrats have no leverage at all, having squandered it on a nominee [Gorsuch] that doesn’t impact the philosophical balance of the court at all. On top of that, their hysterics over Gorsuch have eroded their credibility entirely. Chuck Schumer let the progressive wing of his party lead him into a trap. It’s amazing.
