Trump's Supreme Court pick starts confirmation hearing
The confirmation hearing for Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, has begun.
The court has had a vacancy since Justice Antonin Scalia died last year.
Gorsuch, says he will strive for 'independence and integrity' if appointed.
But Democrats are concerned about his right-wing, pro-business judicial record.
