A New Supreme Court Justice
News Bytes 10/27/2020 17 Comments

In a 52-48 vote, the United States Senate late Monday evening confirmed the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the highest court in the land.

At Justice Barrett’s swearing in on the White House lawn, President Donald Trump called the appointment “momentous.” Justice Clarence Thomas administered the Constitutional Oath to Barrett before a crowd of about 200 people.

Barrett told those gathered that she believes “it is the job of a judge to resist her policy preferences.” The former Indiana federal appeals court judge and mother of seven vowed, “I will do my job without any fear or favor.”

The newest justice began her job today, after taking a second oath administered by Chief Justice John Roberts.

I think it will be good. She is a strong Republican, and stands firm in her faith. She is not afraid to admit it even when being questioned before she was voted in.
