Conservative Justice Antonin Scalia passed away suddenly in February 2016. Pres. Obama appointed Judge Merrick Garland as his replacement. Republican Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell stated no Obama nominee would get a hearing in the Senate, that the people would decide Scalia’s successor with the results of the 2016 presidential election. Judge Gorsuch was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court by Pres. Trump in January 2017, a few weeks after taking office. This confirmation hearing began in the Senate Judiciary Committee in March, 2017.
