FORMER CIA DIRECTOR. Leon Panetta tells Trump to apologize to Obama over wiretapping claim and move on.
NEIL GORSUCH. Red state Democrats feeling pressure on SCOTUS nom. “Both sides are honing in on a group of roughly 10 Democrats up for reelection in 2018 in states carried by Trump and who could make or break his nomination. Democratic leadership signaled within hours of Trump naming Gorsuch to fill the seat left vacant by Justice Antonin Scalia that they would fight his nomination and require him to get 60 votes to clear the upper chamber. That means Republicans will need to break off at least eight Democrats.”
GORSUCH PART 2. LGBT groups warn Senate Judiciary Committee that Gorsuch is an originalist who will harm LGBT people: “This philosophy essentially writes LGBT people out of the Constitution. Based on his extensive record, there can be no doubt that, had he been on the Court, Judge Gorsuch would have rejected each of these basic rights. Judge Gorsuch poses a significant threat to the LGBT community.”
