Washington, District of Columbia: United States President Donald Trump announced on Saturday, September 26th, 2020 his nominee to fill the United States Supreme Court vacated seat to be Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
“Today it is my honor to nominate one of our nation’s most brilliant and gifted legal minds to the Supreme Court. She is a woman of unparalleled achievement, towering intellect, sterling credentials and unyielding loyalty to the Constitution — Judge Amy Coney Barrett,” said United States President Donald Trump from the Rose Garden alongside Barrett.
At just 48, Barrett would be the youngest justice and her tenure could last for decades.
As a longtime University of Notre Dame law professor, Barrett had already established herself as a reliable conservative in the mold of Antonin Scalia, Former Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, for whom she clerked in the late 1990s.
Barrett said she understood that this is a momentous decision for a president and if the Senate does me the honor of confirming me, I pledge to discharge the responsibilities of this job to the very best of my ability.”
“I love the United States and I love the United States constitution. I am truly humbled by the prospect of serving on the Supreme Court,” said Barrett.
Reports that the confirmation hearings for United States Supreme Court justice pick are expected to start on October 12th, 2020, and the hearings are expected to run for three days.
