NYT: Neil Gorsuch Has Deep Ties to Colorado Billionaire

HeadlineMar 15, 2017

The New York Times reports Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch has multiple ties to Colorado billionaire Philip Anschutz, an oil baron who now also owns railroads, real estate, sports teams and stadiums and conservative newspapers like The Weekly Standard and the Washington Examiner. Gorsuch has represented Anschutz and his companies. Anschutz, whose fortune is estimated to top $12 billion, went on to lobby the Bush administration to tap Gorsuch to the federal appeals court. The Senate Judiciary Committee is slated to consider Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court next week.
