BREAKING: Trump’s Supreme Court Justice Pick REVEALED! Your Next SCOTUS Is Judge…

It’s been almost a year since Justice Antonin Scalia’s death. One of the hot topics for the Democrats this past election cycle was to slam their Republican counterparts, as they “held up” the nomination process for the next Supreme Court Justice until after the November 8 election.

Senator Charles Grassley, head of the Judiciary Committee, was wise to wait, giving the American people the ability to choose their president first, and then have their new president choose the next justice.

Well, the wait is officially over! Here is your new SCOTUS – released before the official announcement tonight!

From Independent Journal Review:

Two high-ranking administration sources have confirmed to Independent Journal Review that President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick is Colorado Judge Neil Gorsuch.

Gorsuch, who recently traveled to Washington, D.C., was put on Trump’s short list for the appointment after he met with the then-president elect after the 2016 election…

Two high-ranking administration sources have confirmed to Independent Journal Review that President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick is Colorado Judge Neil Gorsuch.

Gorsuch, who recently traveled to Washington, D.C., was put on Trump’s short list for the appointment after he met with the then-president elect after the 2016 election…

According to Politico:

Gorsuch has the typical pedigree of a high court justice. He graduated from Columbia, Harvard and Oxford, clerked for two Supreme Court justices and did a stint at the Department of Justice.

Gorsuch served in the Justice Department under former President George W. Bush before he was appointed to serve on Denver’s 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, where he still works today.

Gorsuch has made some past statements that seem to indicate how he would make major Supreme Court decisions. Most notably, he has praised the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s dedication to “textualism,” or the interpretation of laws based on the actual text rather than trying to decipher the “intent” of lawmakers or other potential consequences.

“Judges should instead strive, if humanly and so imperfectly, to apply the law as it is, focusing backward, not forward, and looking to text, structure, and history to decide what a reasonable reader at the time of the events in question would have understood the law to be,” Gorsuch said in a speech to Case Western Reserve University’s law school shortly after Scalia passed away.

Further, Gorsuch has been described as a constitutionalist who adheres to “originalism” when interpreting the U.S. Constitution.

To the delight of Trump supporters and conservatives, Gorsuch has also routinely ruled in favor of religious liberty, as Business Insider noted — siding with Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters of the Poor when they claimed Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate violated their religion.

So there you have it! This pick is exactly what we need in America!
