President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch was on Capital Hill Monday to begin his confirmation hearing.

FOX’s Jon Decker reports from Washington:

Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, addressed those who will vote on his nomination, vowing to be an independent and fair arbiter of the law:

(Gorsuch) “I pledge to each of you and the American people that if I am confirmed I will do that all my powers commit to be a faithful servant of the Constitution and the laws of this great nation.”

Gorsuch told Democratic Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal in a private meeting that he found the President’s attacks on the judiciary demoralizing. Democrats may call on him to say it publicly during day two of the confirmation hearing.
