  Amy Coney Barrett Said SCOTUS Justices Shouldn't Be Replaced by Political Opposites in 2016 (Video) In 2016, Republicans in the senate falsely asserted that United States policy is to never appoint a new justice to the supreme court in an election year, as an excuse not to allow Barack Obama to appoint Antonin Scalia's successor.

Senator Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said on Fox News Sunday that Barrett will be confirmed no later than October 27. The hearing is scheduled to wrap on October 22.

“I believe she will be confirmed no later than Tuesday, a week before the election,” Graham said. “That’s my hope. It will be up to Senator [Mitch] McConnell what do after the 22nd, but we can easily get her confirmed before the election.”

The women dressed in red capes and bonnets protesting Barrett’s upcoming confirmation hearing are among those concerned about Barrett’s views on abortion rights. Barrett’s opening statement will emphasize that policy decisions should be left up to political branches of government – Congress and the presidency – not the courts.

“Courts have a vital responsibility to enforce the rule of law, which is critical to a free society,” her statement says. “But courts are not designed to solve every problem or right every wrong in our public life. The policy decisions and value judgments of government must be made by the political branches elected by and accountable to the People.”
