A White House Email

The White House

On Tuesday, President Trump officially introduced his nominee for the United States Supreme Court -- Judge Neil Gorsuch.

Judge Gorsuch brings an incredible amount of expertise, training and enthusiasm to the bench, where he will be a strong defender of our constitutional rights and core principles.

Judge Neil Gorsuch follows the same principled approach espoused by Justice Scalia. He carefully applies the statuary text and he follows the Constitution’s original meaning. He is also a strong protector of individual rights -- including religious liberties -- against government attack.

Judge Gorsuch is exactly the kind of judge we need on the Supreme Court -- a person with a brilliant legal mind, sterling academic credentials and a strong commitment to constitutional principles.

Judge Gorsuch has spent decades fighting for the people of this country, tirelessly defending their rights and freedoms.

Now it’s our turn. Stand up for President Trump and the nation: sign the petition to support Judge Gorsuch. 

As we continue to make America great again, we will face many challenges, and we will need a strong defender of our core constitutional values like Judge Gorsuch to help accomplish our America First agenda.

This is another step in the right direction toward a safer, more prosperous America.

Sign the petition and show your support right now. 





Is this petition -- sent from the White House -- an effort to sway the Senate? If so, could it be a violation of the law below?


18 U.S. Code § 1913 - Lobbying with Appropriated Moneys

No part of the money appropriated by any enactment of Congress shall, in the absence of express authorization by Congress, be used directly or indirectly to pay for any personal service, advertisement, telegram, telephone, letter, printed or written matter, or other device, intended or designed to influence in any manner a Member of Congress, a jurisdiction, or an official of any government, to favor, adopt, or oppose, by vote or otherwise, any legislation, law, ratification, policy, or appropriation, whether before or after the introduction of any bill, measure, or resolution proposing such legislation, law, ratification, policy, or appropriation; but this shall not prevent officers or employees of the United States or of its departments or agencies from communicating to any such Member or official, at his request, or to Congress or such official, through the proper official channels, requests for any legislation, law, ratification, policy, or appropriations which they deem necessary for the efficient conduct of the public business, or from making any communication whose prohibition by this section might, in the opinion of the Attorney General, violate the Constitution or interfere with the conduct of foreign policy, counter-intelligence, intelligence, or national security activities.
