Judge Barrett demonstrated her brilliant legal mind before the Judiciary Committee in 2017 and in more than 100 opinions since joining the Seventh Circuit. She is roundly revered in legal circles for her well-reasoned and deliberate decisions, as well as for her commitment to applying the law as written, regardless of outcome. She is eminently qualified for the Supreme Court. In the coming weeks, we’ll take another close look at her legal career, writings and decisions, and I’ll evaluate her nomination on the merits, as I always have.
I hope that the process going forward is one of respect and civility befitting the Senate and the Supreme Court. Americans, the nominee, and this committee do not deserve a repeat of the shenanigans on display from the left that we saw in 2018.
Judge Barrett is an inspiring American+highly respected jurist She’s an excellent choice for Supreme Ct When hearings begin I'll evaluate this nominee on her merits as I always hv. I hope Dems don’t repeat shameful tactics frm 2018/awful treatment of Kavanaugh whose hrg I chaired
