Amy Coney Barrett Meets With Top Republican Leaders
Judge Amy Coney Barrett met with Vice President Mike Pence and other Republican leaders on Tuesday as they hope to swiftly process Ms. Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
In Judge Amy Coney Barrett we have someone of great character, a great intellect, who has a judicial philosophy that will uphold the Constitution of the United States. President Trump discharged his duty under Article 2 to nominate Judge Barrett to the vacancy on the Supreme Court of the United States. And now we look forward, our entire team later, working with you, Republicans in the Senate, and we hope Democrats in the Senate as well, as you discharge your duty to advise and consent. We truly do believe that Judge Barrett represents the best of America personally in terms of her great intellect, her great background. And we have every confidence that as the American people learn more about Judge Amy Coney Barrett, they will be as inspired as President Trump was when he made her nomination. But we believe the Senate has an opportunity, Leader, for a fair and respectful consideration and hearing. We urge our Democratic colleagues in the Senate to take the opportunity to meet with Judge Barrett. And as the hearing goes forward, to provide the kind of respectful hearing that the American people expect. We look forward to a vote in the Senate in the near future and to fill the seat on the Supreme Court of the United States because the American people deserve a justice like Judge Amy Coney Barrett. The American people deserve 9 justices on the Supreme Court of the United States.
