The confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett, President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, are set to begin October 12. She was on Capitol Hill for a second day yesterday, meeting with GOP senators as lawmakers of both parties brace for the potential of delayed election night results or a disputed presidential election that lands before the high court. She continues meetings today with senators on Capitol Hill.
Barrett, who currently sits on the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court, is a devout Catholic – but much has been made by liberal activists and some media outlets of her affiliation with the charismatic Christian religious group, People of Praise. Her critics are concerned she might make decisions on topics, such as abortion, based on those beliefs.
