Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination hearing continues in the Senate

On Wednesday, the Supreme Сourt nominee answers questions from senators again.

Supreme Court justice nominee Amy Coney Barrett on Wednesday continues to answer questions from members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, where her confirmation hearing is in its third day.

On Tuesday, Barrett answered questions for 11 hours, trying to avoid the most pressing social topics.

Democrats are particularly interested in the judge’s position on issues such as same-sex marriage and abortion. They also believe that Barrett’s approval would jeopardize the affordable care act, but the judge said: “I am not here on a mission to destroy the affordable care act. I am here to apply the law and adhere to the rule of law.”

The judge was also asked whether she would participate in the consideration of disputes that may arise in connection with the upcoming presidential election. Barrett assured that she would not allow herself to be “used as a pawn to determine the outcome of the election for the American people.

“The four – day hearing before the Judiciary Committee is an important step towards considering Barrett’s candidacy in the full Senate. It is planned to move to this stage at the end of October.
