Amy Coney Barrett Will Upend American Life as We Know It

1 month ago   |   By The New Republic

There was never much doubt that the Republican-led Senate would confirm Amy Coney Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court. In the immediate wake of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death last month, some Republican senators said they would support the confirmation even before President Donald Trump selected a nominee. So influential is the conservative legal movement and Trump himself that no name was needed before committing to one of the most consequential votes of those senators' careers. As expected, the final vote for Barrett fell along strict party lines, making her the first Supreme Court...

By LISA MASCARO
WASHINGTON - Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court late Monday by a deeply divided Senate, Republicans overpowering Democrats to install President Donald Trump's nominee days before the election and secure a likely conservative court majority for years to come.
Trump's choice to fill the vacancy of the late liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg potentially opens a new era of rulings on abortion, the Affordable Care Act and even his own election. Democrats were unable to stop the outcome, Trump's third justice on the court, as Republicans race to reshape the...

Her swearing-in ceremony was already scheduled for later in the evening at the White House, presided over by Justice Clarence Thomas. Barrett is...
