Brooks Commends Confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to Supreme Court

Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) today released the following statement on the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch as the next associate justice of the United States Supreme Court.  

Congressman Mo Brooks stated, “President Donald Trump made an outstanding nomination in Neil Gorsuch, and today I commend his confirmation as the next associate justice of the United States Supreme Court.  Further, I support the Senate’s use of the Democrat Harry Reid precedent (sometimes called the “nuclear option”) to ensure Gorsuch’s confirmation.  He was unanimously confirmed by the Senate in 2006, enjoying the full support of the Democrat senators.  Despite failed partisan attempts and political theater aimed to paint Gorsuch as an ideologue who will rule based on personal beliefs, Gorsuch has consistently demonstrated his commitment and record of ruling on issues before his court based on rational interpretation of the original intent of the Constitution or law, regardless of his personal opinions.  I am certain Neil Gorsuch will honor the legacy of Justice Antonin Scalia.”
