http://democracynow.org  - President Trump was only able to nominate Judge Neil Gorsuch to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia because the Republican-led Senate refused to consider Obama’s nominee for the post last year. Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland on March 16, but Republican senators refused to hold confirmation hearings for months. Many are now calling Gorsuch’s nomination a "stolen seat." For more, we speak with Ian Milhiser, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress Action Fund and justice editor of ThinkProgress. We also speak with Nan Aron, president of the Alliance for Justice.
