Washington( CNN) Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch sought to prove his judicial independence and asserted that he had no problem ruling against the President who appointed him, telling, “no man is above the law.”

In his second day of confirmation hearings, Gorsuch repeatedly tried to avoid prejudging any future lawsuits, preserving before the Senate Judiciary Committee that he’s a “fair judge.”

Tuesday marked the committee’s first chance to publicly ask him questions. Some senators tried to quiz the federal magistrate on previous positions and actions taken by President Donald Trump on issues like immigration and torture.
