NBC News justice correspondent Pete Williams tells TODAY that Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee to fill the seat vacated by the late Antonin Scalia, “approaches the law as Scalia did.” He notes that Republicans claimed that their refusal to consider former President Obama’s nominee to the seat, Merrick Garland, was about principle, and that now Democrats are saying the same thing about Gorsuch.
