Witnesses set to clash over Barrett's confirmation during final Judiciary Committee hearing

워싱턴 Witnesses are expected to offer competing arguments over the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court during the Senate Judiciary Committee’s final hearing Thursday, as Republicans continue to drive the process forward.

The slate of names, which were released by Republican Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham and the panel’s top Democrat, 이것의. 다이앤 파인 슈타인, hail from an assortment of backgrounds. The Republican lineup is poised to speak to Barrett’s legal credentials, while Democrats appear to have chosen witnesses that can bring a personal message to the sweeping issues that have defined the first three hearings.
Two Republican-tapped witnesses, Randal Noel and Pamela Roberts from the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary, will kick off the witness list Thursday. Noel wrote in a letter to the panel earlier this week that the American Bar Association found Barrett to bewell qualifiedto serve on the high court.
Another Republican witness, retired Judge Thomas Griffith, who sat on the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, 썼다 Bloomberg Law Op-Ed earlier this week that Barrett’s faithwon’t dictate her rulings.
    Saikrishna Prakash, a professor of law at the University of Virginia, and Amanda Rauh-Bieri, who clerked for Barrett on the 7th Circuit, will also testify along with Laura Wolk, who was a student of Barrett’s at Notre Dame Law School.
    The Democratic witness list, 그 동안에, will bring a mix of expert voices and personal stories to the issues of health care, abortion and other topics on which the party had grilled Barrett in recent days.
    Stacy Staggs, a mother of 7-year-old twins who have multiple pre-existing conditions and rely on the Affordable Care Act, will discussthe devastating effects on her family if the Supreme Court overturnsthe ACA, Feinstein said in a statement.

    Kristen Clarke, the president of the LawyersCommittee for Civil Rights Under Law, will speak on voting rights and civil rights protected under the Constitution.
    The witness testimonies will cap a contentious week of hearings that have seen Barrett repeatedly decline to wade into a slate of issues.
    Beyond health care and abortion, Democrats have questioned Barrett on her positions and writings on gun rights, voting rights and whether she would recuse herself on election disputes involving the President that might reach the high court.
    Repeatedly though, Barrett has declined to engage with the senators on key issues, citing a standard named for the confirmation hearing of the justice she would replace, the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, not to discuss cases that she could be hearing in the future.
    Despite objections from Democrats, the GOP-led panel is moving briskly through Barrett’s confirmation hearings and on track to vote next week, with the Senate planning its vote by the end of the month.
      There’s nothing unconstitutional about this process. This is a vacancy that’s occurred through a tragic loss of a great woman, and we’re going to fill that vacancy with another great woman,” Graham said Monday.
      The bottom line here is that the Senate is doing its duty constitutionally.
