WASHINGTON TIMES President Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick of Judge Neil Gorsuch may just garner the 60 votes he needs to be confirmed to the bench. After heavy pressure from outside groups, some Democratic senators from red states applauded when Mr. Trump touted Mr. Gorsuch in his address to Congress on Tuesday. Among them were Sens.

The former Trump national-security adviser resigned under fire when a false narrative -- his purported collusion with election-hacking Russians -- was inflamed by criminal intelligence leaks, exacerbated by his poor judgment (or, at the least, poor execution of his duty to brief senior administration officials).
