Who is Supreme Court contender Judge Amy Coney Barrett?

President Trump has promised to nominate a woman to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and two names are prominent: Judge Amy Coney Barrett and Judge Barbara Lagoa.

President Trump met with Barrett on Monday at the White House. Ever the TV producer, President Trump believes that Barrett will appear well on TV, and she has already been vetted through a grueling Senate confirmation in 2017. Barrett appears to be the front-runner in the president’s mind.

According to Bloomberg:

Trump has told allies that he thinks Barrett, 48, is a smart, hard-nosed, conservative jurist who would also come across well during televised confirmation hearings, according to one of the people. Officials are also encouraged that Barrett survived a tough confirmation fight in 2017. The Senate confirmed her with a 55-43 vote that largely fell along party lines.

Barrett clerked for late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the most conservative Supreme Court Justice in decades. Barrett was nominated by Trump to serve on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 2017. She was on the list to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, but the president went with Brett Kavanaugh, allegedly saving Barrett to replace Ginsburg, according to some.

Judge Barrett enjoys a solid legal record at prestigious institutions. According to the Wall Street Journal:

Prior to her Scalia clerkship, she also served as a law clerk to Judge Laurence Silberman, a well-known conservative in Washington, D.C. During law school, she was executive editor of the Notre Dame Law Review and won the school’s highest award for scholarship and achievement.

Even though Senator Diane Feinstein rebuked Barrett in the 2017 confirmation hearings, three Democrats voted for her nomination. Tim Kaine (D-VA), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Joe Donnelly (D-IN).

Feinstein thought Barrett is too Catholic:

Barrett is young, and if confirmed, could conceivably serve on the high court for more than 30 years. She is a mother of seven, Catholic, and strongly pro-life in her convictions. She is the favorite of the pro-life movement. Democrats don’t want her, and there is no higher recommendation than that.

    1. I agree with Dianne ….. get’er done ….. she must be good if the Democrats don’t want anything to do with her and Feinstein sealed the deal for me with her arrogant words of hate taking a shot at her faith …… look forward to her being confirmed …… God Bless her……

  1. It would be a breath of fresh air to have a sane, bright, young conservative woman replace Justice Ginsburg on the High Court. The Left will try to burn this country down no matter who is nominated so I say go with the known
    winner ! Great pick President Trump.

    1. RIGHT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT’S TRUE WHOEVER WE PICK THEY WILL BURN THIS COUNTRY DOWN THAT’S WHAT THEY SAID. REMEMBER WHAT OBAMA SAID ELECTION HAS CONSEQUENCES! HE SAID HE WON . WE NEED TO RAISE THIS COUNTRY ONCE AGAIN. LOOK WHAT IT HAD COME TOO. REPUBLICANS IN THE SENATE, CONGRESS WHEN THEY HAD IT . THEY DID NOT DO ANYTHING THEY WERE A BUNCH OF WIMPS. GAME ON!!! THIS SEAT HAS TO BE FILLED. TRUMP, TRUMP. TRUMP, TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND PRESIDENT TRUMP. THANK YOU ANN! DAMN THOSE TORPEDOES!!! FULL SPEED AHEAD!!!!!!!!!!

  2. We need a right leaning, conservative SCOTUS to reverse laws that have done nothing but put a division between Americans in this country.

  3. The president has the constitutional right to nominate anyone he sees fit. The democrats, Feinstein, and Ginsberg didn’t want Amy Coney Barrett, because Barrett is anti-abortion, and Feinstein and Ginsberg are pro-abortion. Bottom line. The democrats believe in killing babies, before they’re born

  4. I am impressed with the background and track record for Amy Coney Barrett. TRULY.

    If Amy is chosen to be considered, in the Senate for confirmation, I would be happy.
    However, since there are others in the process of being considered, I would like to
    learn more about them….as this process moves forward. I understand, that there are
    two more candidates. So, who are the other two and their backgrounds are??

  5. Judge Amy Coney Barrett sounds good to me. She has a super track record and exceptional qualifications, best of all The democrats don’t like her. The president has the constitutional right to nominate anyone he sees fit. I am in favor of Judge Barrett, the quicker the better.

  6. IDONT CALL IT CONSERVATIVE. SHE IS REALLY AN ORIGINALIST. SHE, AS I, BELIEVE THAT THE COURT SYSTEM , ESPECIALLY THE SUPREME cOURT, SHOULD NOT LEGISLATE. SHE SOLD RULE ACCORDING TO THE THE CONSTITUTION AS IT WAS WRITTEN OR ORIGINALLY STATED, NO MORE AND NO LESS. SO ITS A MISNOMER TO CALL HER CONSERVATIVE OR GINSBURG A LIBERAL. GINSBERG AS TO SOME OTHERS BELIEVE THE CONSTITUTION IS A “LIVING ” DOCUMENT” SUBJECT TO CHANGE THRU TIME. IF ONE TAKES THAT SIDE, THEN WHY HAVE A CONSTITUTION IN THE FIRST PLACE. TOGETHER, MANY HAVE TURNED THIS INTO A POLITICAL FIGHT BY IDENTIFYING ONE AS LIBERAL OR CONSERVATIVE. IT’S SIMPLY ORIGINALISM OR A LIVING CONSTITUTIONALISM. THE FIRST SEEKS THE ORIGINAL MEANING AND THE LATTER MODIFIES THE LAW TO TRY TO APPLY IT TO CHANGING TIMES OR PUBLIC ATTITUDE. THE LATTER IS VERY, VERY DANGEROUS AND CAUSES THE BENCH TO LEGISLATE NEW MEANING TO EXISTING LAWS.

  7. She sounds like the one//Amy C. Barrette/ Although it needs to be done ASAP it would be nice to know something about the others/

  8. It matters not what name one attaches to a person, conservative, originalist etc. What matter is if the person Trump picks is a conservative in name only or if she is a person of her convictions and for the purposes of this appointment that means anti abortion. It certainly has nothing to do with being identified as a Christian because many call themselves Christian yet live like they are best friends with the devil.
    Living by the tenants of Christian faith whatever denomination one is associated with is what frightens the left. All Christians should be abhorred by abortion but many aren’t-their convictions are skewed. I am praying that what ever faith, be it Catholic, Evangelical ???? the woman Trump nominates is conservative, ProLife and believes in the Constitution as written. 4+!

  9. As far as I can reason,she should be the ONE!No doubt about i!! Just more anger and tantrums from desPICABLE left! Oh well!! TRUMP 2020!!!

  10. You know the democrats will aggressively try to slander this woman because that is who they are. However, the mother of 7 children with a strong Catholic belief is morally sound and at best impossible to attack her character. Which makes no difference to the dark and evil democrat party that has no morals or shame. God has blessed this woman, now the Senate will!

  11. President Trump may do a political move and pick the woman from FL since she’s Hispanic and it would benefit him with the FL voters and save this judge for the next appointment. Since she’s from IN and mike pence will carry IN for him.

  12. Yes I agree let’s get this don….NOW!!
    Our President knows what he is doing The whining radical Democrats will throw their fit if he nominated Mother Theresa !
    Draw the line in sand and choose which side you want on!!
    Good and Just or Evil and socialistic

  13. ABSOLUTELY! Get a move on as the DEMS may decide to blow up the world they are so desperate! She is exactly what we need right now to steer our country back to our blueprint; The Constitution! I cringe when I think about the hearing she will face, but I would love Feinstein to tell all the Catholics in America she is not qualified because she is “TOO CATHOLIC.” FEINSTEIN is getting as senile as Joe. 75 million ,380, 000 Catholics in the US may think that is PREJUDICE FEINSTEIN! Time for Feinstein to stop gorging in the public trough and GO HOME!
