On Thursday (March 9, 2017), the American Bar Association sent a letter to Senator Chuck Grassley, Chairman and Dianne Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee endorsing Judge Neil Gorsuch “for the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.”
The letter states:
“The ABA Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary has completed its evaluation of the professional qualifications of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, whom the President has nominated to the United States Supreme Court. As you know, the Committee confines its evaluation to the qualities of integrity, professional competence, and judicial demeanor.
“After an exhaustive evaluation process, the Committee has determined by unanimous vote that Judge Gorsuch is ‘Well Qualified’ for the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.”

“Senate Democrats are the only firewall we have left now against the Trump court,” added Murshed Zaheed, Credo Action’s political director. He warned that any Democrat who supports the Gorsuch nomination “will permanently damage his or her political career”[…]
As for Senator Chuck Schumer, well greasy Chuck is still whining, about everything.
