Senate reveals timeline for Amy Coney Barrett confirmation

Senate Republicans are moving quickly to start the confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, Fox News reported on Monday. 

Senate leadership is working at lightning speed to get Coney confirmed ahead of the November election. Confirmation hearings are set to begin on Oct. 12, leading to a potential confirmation vote in late October.

The timeframe is tight — just 16 days from nomination to confirmation — but Senate leadership is confident that the process will move quickly and smoothly.

“More than half of the Supreme Court justices who have had hearings were done within 16 days or less, so we’ll start on Oct. 12,” explained Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham on Sunday.

Fox News reported:

Graham continued that there would be “a day of introduction,” “two days of questioning” and then a markup after that. He said the committee would report her nomination on Oct. 22, which would be less than two weeks before the presidential election.

A floor vote on Barrett’s confirmation would likely happen shortly thereafter, assuming everything goes as planned for Republicans – it didn’t with Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation in 2018.

Democrat leadership is scrambling to identify the best plan of attack against Barrett, and it appears that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has chosen to highlight fears that Barrett will work to strike down Obamacare if confirmed.

“By nominating Judge Barrett to the Supreme Court, President Trump has put Americans’ health care at grave risk,” Schumer said on Saturday. “And as COVID-19 continues and we need more health care, the nomination by President Trump of Amy Coney Barrett will mean less health care for over 100 million Americans.”

        1. He is a spineless fool; just like Pelosi! How in God’s name are they still in government? They love destroying others when they fear losing their God: POWER!

  2. How does the appointment of Judge Barrett affect health care ??? Schumer must be a complete idiot, to think that his grabbing for oars on his sinking, leaky raft will somehow save healthcare. The system may need adjusting is all. Schumer can save his screams and shrieks for something he knows something about….if there is one. Is there one ?
