Warren Voices Opposition to Trump’s Supreme Court Pick

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has looked into the future and does not see Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a viable candidate for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020

In what could charitably be described as the least surprising political news of the day, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) greeted President Donald Trump’s choice of Neil Gorusch for the U.S. Supreme Court with an immediate denunciation.
In a statement issued 90 minutes after the President’s announcement, the architect of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau claimed that Gorusch, a judge on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, was too chummy with the financial services industry.
 
“President Trump had the chance to select a consensus nominee to the Supreme Court,” Warren said in a statement. “To the surprise of absolutely nobody, he failed that test. Instead, he carried out his public promise to select a nominee from a list drawn up by far right activist groups that were financed by big business interests … Before even joining the bench, he advocated to make it easier for public companies to defraud investors. As a judge, he has twisted himself into a pretzel to make sure the rules favor giant companies over workers and individual Americans … We don’t need another justice who spends his time looking out for those with money and influence. Based on the long and well-established record of Judge Gorsuch, I will oppose his nomination.”
