The news just dropped about a Senate reversal. This Supreme Court bombshell has rocked Washington, DC, and the nomination is all anyone can talk about now — politicians on both sides of the aisle are stunned.
During an interview with Maria Bartiromo, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) reversed the political hopes of Democrats that Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearings would be stalled due to three senators contracting COVID-19.
“Several of the senators who are in isolation right now would come out of isolation before those hearings begin,” said Cotton. “So the hearing is going forward, no doubt in my mind starting a week from tomorrow, Maria.”
Cotton even said that, should there be a worst-case scenario, “there is a long and venerable tradition of ill or medically infirmed senators being wheeled in to cast critical votes on the Senate floor.”
However, according to the Arkansas senator, his colleagues currently battling the virus are either asymptomatic or have mild symptoms. They will all have a quick and full recovery — and that is certainly bad news for the left.
Democrats wanted Barrett’s hearings to be slowed down, at least until after the election, but Cotton and other Republican leaders are saying ”not so fast.” Barrett will be confirmed whether liberals like it or not.
