Supreme Court Justice from gorsuch bring back conservatism
New Supreme Court Justice Neil from gorsuch, his Conservative presence on the bench, an impact on a number of important judgments
President Trump on Tuesday struck down a Washington Post report that said he came close to “withdraw” the nomination for the Supreme Court pick Neil from gorsuch before his hearing.
“A story in the @washingtonpost, I was close to ‘repeal’ the nomination of justice from gorsuch before the confirmation is a FAKE NEWS. I have not swayed once, and I’m very proud of him and the work he makes, as the justice of the US Supreme Court. The unnamed sources don’t exist!” Trump tweeted.

The report was published in the Washington Post on Monday night, and said Trump discussed withdrawal from gorsuch’s nomination, after he was critical of Trump and his verbal attacks on the Federal judiciary.
The Post report focuses on Trump’s response to the comments from gorsuch Democratic Sen., Richard Blumenthal, made in February, when he called Trump’s criticism of the judges “discouraging” and “demoralizing.”
The report was attributed to “several people with knowledge of the talks.”
The Post stood by its reporting, updating the story Tuesday to discuss tomorrow with the President’s tweet, and write that “this account is based on interviews with 11 people familiar with the episode, some of whom spoke on condition of anonymity, private consultations.”
The President has struck again “Fake News” and the journalistic practice of using anonymous sources, which indicates often to the fact that they exist.
