Barrett Confirmed as U.S. Supreme Court Justice

Amy Coney Barrett has been confirmed 52-48 by the U.S. Senate to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death earlier this year. Barrett is the 3rd Supreme Court Justice to be nominated and confirmed since President Trump took office in 2017. Despite the fact that it was a foregone conclusion that Barrett would be confirmed, Democratic Senators spent the weekend doing whatever they could to delay the final vote. 

In response, Senate Republicans spent the weekend exposing the Democrats' hypocrisy and goal of remaking the judiciary.

RNLA Executive Director Michael Thielen stated:

Justice Amy Coney Barrett will interpret the text of the Constitution and statutes as written just as she did on the Seventh Circuit, and the Senate's confirmation of her today is an important step to protect the rule of law for all Americans. President Trump and Senate Republicans should be commended for not bowing to purely political pressure from the left that would have kept this extremely well qualified woman from joining the Supreme Court.
Barrett is expected to be sworn in by Justice Clarence Thomas at the White House later tonight.
