Gillibrand Concedes Gorsuch Will Be Confirmed

During an interview with NY1, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) admitted that President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch will get confirmed.

“I’m hopeful that my colleagues will vote their conscience and decide up or down whether this nominee is worthy of this very high responsibility. I hope we do vote him down,” Gillibrand told NY1.

Gillibrand went on to say about the nomination, “It likely will be 51 votes regardless at any given time that any nominee is blocked. But I expect our colleagues to vote their conscience and to really look at his record and see if he’s the kind of nominee that’s worthy of our support.”

The anchor pressed Gillibrand on whether or not she thought President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee would be confirmed.

” Ultimately yeah, I believe he will be,” Gillibrand responded.
