DEMAND JUSTICE STATEMENT ON CONCLUSION OF SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE QUESTIONING OF AMY CONEY BARRETT

WASHINGTON, DC— Following the conclusion of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s questioning of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon released the following statement:

“Amy Coney Barrett is a historically unpopular nominee because of her views on Roe and the Affordable Care Act and the fact that she is being jammed onto the Court on the eve of an election, and this sham of a hearing did not resolve any of those concerns.

“If anything, she comes out of these hearings appearing even more extreme for her refusals to admit that climate change is real and voter intimidation is illegal.

“If Republicans proceed as expected, Democrats will have every right to consider Barrett illegitimate and pursue structural reform to restore ideological balance to the Court.”
