Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump’s nominee to the United States Supreme Court, is likely to be confirmed easily. One of the reasons why is because he has the full confidence of the legal community.

American Bar Association Gives Gorsuch Top Rating, Says He’s ‘Well-Qualified’
The American Bar Association declared on Thursday that President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, is “well-qualified” to succeed the late Antonin Scalia.
ABA’s chair Nancy Scott Degan said the group’s standing committee on the federal judiciary reached a unanimous decision and that Gorsuch received the group’s highest rating, Politico reported.
Degan informed the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.), of the group’s decision in a letter on Thursday. She also informed White House counsel Don McGahn and Gorsuch through a written letter.
“The ABA’s ringing endorsement is no surprise given Judge Gorsuch’s sterling credentials and his distinguished decade-long record on the Tenth Circuit,” Grassley said. “Former Chairman [Patrick] Leahy and Minority Leader [Chuck] Schumer have called the ABA’s assessment the ‘gold standard’ in evaluating federal judicial nominations.
Trump made a great choice in Gorsuch. Just like he promised he would!
