Amy Coney Barrett Confirmation Set to Begin October 12

Amy Coney Barrett

The Senate Judiciary Committee has formally scheduled the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. The hearings will begin on October 12 and could last through October 15. The committee will likely implement health and safety protocols for the hearing, including allowing members to appear remotely, due to the ongoing pandemic. 

Barrett has been meeting with Senators from both parties in preparation for the hearings. As we have previously reported, Barrett's confirmation hearings are expected to be contentious, with some committee members already raising questions about her Catholic faith and raising concerns about holding the hearings this close to a presidential election.
