The Senate will vote Monday on confirming President Trump's nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, to the Supreme Court.
"With regard to the Supreme Court justice ... we'll be voting to confirm justice-to-be Barrett next Monday," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said during a weekly press conference, confirming the timing of a final vote on her nomination.
"I think that will be another signature accomplishment in our effort to put on the courts, the federal courts, men and women that believe in the quaint notion that maybe the job of a judge is to actually follow the law," McConnell added.
Last week, Judge Barrett proved she has the deep legal expertise, judicial temperament, and intellectual horsepower that Americans deserve to have on the Supreme Court. The Senate will turn to her nomination as soon as it comes out of committee later this week.— Leader McConnell (@senatemajldr) October 19, 2020

Judge Barrett exhibited every bit of the intellectual brilliance, legal expertise, and open-minded judicial temperament that we need on the Supreme Court. I will proudly vote to confirm her. The Senate will take up her nomination as soon as it comes out of Committee. pic.twitter.com/KkOGo0JVKL— Leader McConnell (@senatemajldr) October 16, 2020
Schumer says Democrats won't give GOP quorum to advance Barrett nomination. McConnell can call for a vote. Can’t stop the quorum we have 53 senators and do not need the Dems and their stupid games https://t.co/NZmnq5JHtR #FoxNews— Trevor ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@readyletsgo27) October 12, 2020
