Judges' response to Trump criticism: Silence

A spokeswoman for Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch on Thursday disputed reports that he called President Trump's attack on a federal judge "demoralizing".
Democrat Senator Richard Blumenthal said Gorsuch had described Trump's anti-judicial outbursts as "disheartening" and "demoralizing" as the nominee made courtesy visits to senators on Wednesday.
In response to Trump's travel ban on seven Muslim majority countries and plans for "extreme vetting" of refugees, Farrow said she supports any measures Trump takes to keep the United States, despite the measure leading to protests at airports and courthouses around the country and facing legal challenges from the appeals court. Nominated by a man who has personally attacked judges when he's anxious they won't agree with him, Gorsuch was going to have to tiptoe around President Donald Trump's disregard for judicial independence.
This story is breaking and will be updated. And then Sean Spicer insisted, in a tetchy exchange with the press, that Gorsuch's comments about attacks on the judicial branch had absolutely nothing to do with Trump's attacks on the judicial branch.
Trump, who took office on January 20, referred to Robart as a "so-called judge" and said his "ridiculous" opinion "essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country".
And from the Wall Street Journal: "Yemen's simmering war is getting fresh attention from Washington-to the delight of Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies, hopeful that President Donald Trump will choose the conflict as his first battleground to roll back Iran".
In his speech, Trump sought to link his comments about the court battle over his executive order to the law enforcement community in attendance. Schumer wrote that Gorsuch had expressed the same concerns to him during a meeting on Capitol Hill but claimed that the judge refused to speak out publicly on the matter.
Sasse's account mirrors that of Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT, who also met privately with Gorsuch, as is customary when a nominee is under Senate consideration.
IAAF maintain ban on Russian athletes
Lord Coe also reiterated the IAAF's commitment to giving clean Russian athletes the possibility to compete as neutrals. Individual Russian athletes can apply to take part in worldwide events as neutrals if they are deemed drug-free.
If confirmed, Gorsuch would become the youngest Supreme Court justice since Clarence Thomas in 1991.
The White House dispatched Leonard Leo, one of Trump's principal advisers on his Supreme Court nomination, to assure CNN that it was a "huge stretch" to connect President Trump's ongoing attacks on judges with any physical threats to judges.
As a candidate, Donald Trump famously impugned the integrity of a federal judge presiding over a lawsuit against Trump University, suggesting he couldn't be impartial because of his Mexican ancestry. "Blumenthal, that he could not comment on any specific cases and that judicial ethics prevent him from commenting on political matters", Ayotte's statement said.
Trump dismissed Robart as a "so-called judge", whose "ridiculous ruling", will be overturned.
The Senate's top Democrat, Chuck Schumer of NY, also said Gorsuch told him he was "disheartened" by Trump's insult.
"He feels strongly about the independent judiciary".
"I think the president's comments speak for themselves", he said.
"The president is going to speak his mind", he said. And he'll no doubt have additional opportunities to distance himself from Trump's tweets at his confirmation hearings, because Senate Democrats are determined to get him on the record on the subject, as much to embarrass the president as to establish Gorsuch's independence from the man who appointed him.
