On January 31, President Donald Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to replace Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court.
Judge Gorsuch is a graduate of Columbia and Harvard Law School, and currently sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
Joining We the People to discuss the prospects for Gorsuch’s confirmation, his record, and how he may shape the Court are two friends of the podcast and leading constitutional advocates who are on the front lines of the confirmation debate.
Michele Jawando is Vice President for Legal Progress at the Center for American Progress.
John Malcolm is Director of the Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, and the Ed Gilbertson and Sherry Lindberg Gilbertson Senior Legal Fellow, at the Heritage Foundation.
