Amy Coney Barrett Said SCOTUS Justices Shouldn't Be Replaced by Political Opposites in 2016 (Video)

  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. So it makes a lot of sense that plenty of people are calling them out as dishonest hypocrites now that they're rushing through the appointment of a new justice in an election year. But of course it wasn't just SenateBut of course it wasn't just Senate Republicans who justified those actions in terms that definitely apply to current circumstances only to advance the precise opposite opinions less than 4 years later.

Just minutes before the vote, the existing members on the court voted 5-3 to block a proposal in Wisconsin that would have extended the deadline for the state to receive ballots for up to six days after the election, as long as they were postmarked by Nov. 3. Now they will have to arrive by Election Day to be counted.

A conservative in the mold of Antonin Scalia, her mentor, Barrett went through a confirmation hearing refusing to take a firm position on a hotbed of issues, including the fate of the Affordable Care Act, the future of Roe vs. Wade and even on same sex marriage.

Barrett, 48, has been a judge on the Court of Appeals since 2017. Before that, she had a long tenure as a law professor at the University of Notre Dame.

She will succeed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the leading liberal voice on the court who died on Sept. 18. Barrett will be the fifth woman confirmed to the court.

The US Senate has confirmed the appointment of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the seat previously held by the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg as an associate justice on the US Supreme Court .

Judge Amy Coney Barrett , a federal appellate judge and Notre Dame law professor, is a proven conservative with a compelling personal story who has long been atop President Donald Trump's Supreme Court short list.

Ginsburg told her granddaughter days before she died that it was her wish that her successor be chosen by the next president. But President Donald Trump and Capitol Hill Republicans went forward with filling the seat anyway, reneging on their 2016 policy that a vacancy should not be filled during a presidential election year.

Some Democrats are calling for the court to be expanded, given what they see as Republican hypocrisy. Earlier on Monday, Joe Biden told reporters that, if elected, he wants to form a commission to make a recommendation on the courts, even though he said that he wasn’t a fan of the idea of so-called “court packing.”

Republicans sat in their seats, wearing masks, during the roll call, while Democrats instead walked to the floor to vote but did not stay.

Democrats have focused their opposition to the potential impact that Barrett’s confirmation will have on the future of the Affordable Care Act. The legality of the healthcare law will come before the court on Nov. 10.

Amy Coney Barrett Confirmation Battle Already Marked By ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Protesters

  Amy Coney Barrett Confirmation Battle Already Marked By ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Protesters The start of Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearing on Monday has already attracted protests outside the Capitol, including a group of women dressed in the red habits borrowed from the television adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale. Barrett is expected to offer praise for her mentor, the late Justice Antonin Scalia, during the hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. She is also likely to be challenged on her views on healthcare.

Amy Coney Barrett has been nominated by President Trump to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. There’s still a process they have to go through to put Barrett on the court . As we saw with Trump’s 2018 nominee, Brett M. Kavanaugh, the unforeseen can slow that process.

“The American people will suffer the consequences of Judge Barrett’s far right, out of the mainstream views for generations,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on the floor shortly before the vote.

Schumer said that Republicans had engaged in a “theft” of two Supreme Court seats using contradictory criteria. Senate Majority Mitch McConnell refused to hold hearings for President Barack Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, after the death of Scalia in February, 2016.

He acknowledged that Republicans may win the Barrett confirmation, but said, “You will never, ever, get your credibility back. The next time the American people give Democrats a majority in this chamber, you will have forfeited your right to tell us how to run that majority.”

On the floor, McConnell talked up Barrett’s qualifications. He blamed Democrats for the politicization of the judicial confirmation process. “I voted for both Ginsburg and Breyer,” McConnell said, referring to two nominees of Bill Clinton. “Seems like a long time ago.”

“Elections have consequences,” McConnell said, pushing pack against the idea that Barrett’s confirmation was somehow illegitimate.

Barrett’s confirmation gave Trump his third Supreme Court appointment, something he plans to emphasize in the final week of the presidential race.
