The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee votes to approve President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, sending his nomination to the full Senate. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 11-9 along party lines to send Gorsuch's nomination to the full Senate, setting up a political showdown between Trump's fellow Republicans and the opposition Democrats that appears likely to trigger a change in long-standing Senate rules to allow his confirmation. Democrats on Monday amassed enough support to block Gorsuch's nomination, but Republicans vowed to change the Senate rules to ensure the conservative judge gets the lifetime job. Republican Senate leaders insist Gorsuch will be confirmed on the Senate floor on Friday regardless of what the Democrats do.
