Senate hearings for Amy Coney Barrett to begin Oct. 12 as Republicans eye Election Day

Source: USA Today

WASHINGTON – Amy Coney Barrett will appear before senators for her first confirmation hearing on Oct. 12, two Capitol Hill sources told USA TODAY, as Senate Republicans push to confirm President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee quickly, possibly before Election Day.

The hearing is one of four that week before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the panel tasked with vetting judicial nominees and where nominees are grilled on a range of sensitive issues that could be taken up by the high court. .

Next week, she is scheduled to meet one-on-one with members of the Senate. These meetings, typical in any Supreme Court vetting, will allow senators to both question Barrett on her opinion on issues and give them the chance to get to know the nominee.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, the South Carolina Republican who chairs the committee, is set to lay out a timeline for Barrett's nomination process later Saturday. But he and other Republicans have said they are planning to move quickly, with a vote expected before the end of October.

I don't know Lindsey this shit could blow up in your face. Maybe not you personally but the Republican party in general.

1. October 12 is three weeks before election day

This is ridiculous. Most Supreme Court confirmations take approximately 2 months.

Isn’t October 12 Columbus Day? The senate shouldn’t be in session on a federal holiday 😆

4. Seven Kids

She's got seven kids---must not take birth control measures. This is one reason the planet is getting too small. Also, with seven children you'd think maybe as a parent you couldn't give all your children the attention that they need---is this not a form of child abuse. O wait, they probable have an undocumented nanny!!!
