Sen. Feinstein, Dems formally ask for delay in Amy Coney Barrett confirmation

    Barrett's confirmation hearing is set for Oct. 12

    California Democrat had called for nationwide mask mandate on airlines, public transportation.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., led a group of Democrats to formally call for a delay in the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett until after the presidential inauguration, saying the process is too rushed to properly vet President Trump's pick.

    Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, wrote Wednesday to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., the chairman of the committee, to challenge the Oct. 12 date he set for Barrett's confirmation hearing.

    “The timeline for consideration of Judge Barrett’s nomination is incompatible with the Senate’s constitutional role," Feinstein wrote. "We again urge you to delay consideration of this nomination until after the presidential inauguration. The Senate and the American public deserve a deliberative, thorough process, and this falls far short.”

    Graham and Senate Republicans believe Barrett is supremely qualified and there's enough time to vet her, especially since she recently went through the rigorous process when she was confirmed in 2017 to become a judge on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.

    "The question for the country is, is [Judge Barrett] ready to be promoted? I think the answer is yes," Graham said this week. "I think she’s done everything anybody could hope a nominee for the Supreme Court would do in their life.”

    “I think [Judge Barrett] is one of the most qualified people to ever be nominated to the Supreme Court," he added.

    Of course they're going to ask for a delay.

    After Kavanaugh, I think the Pubs are of a unified mind to get this done as quickly as possible, especially considering she went through the same process only two years ago.
