Amy Coney Barrett: I Would Be The Only Justice With School-Age Children, Who Didn't Attend Harvard Or Yale

|

Judge Amy Coney Barrett said during her confirmation hearing opening statement that she was honored to accept President Donald Trump’s nomination to the Supreme Court, even though had not sought it out.

She said in her opening statement before the Senate Judiciary Committee, believes "deeply in the rule of law and the place of the Supreme Court in our nation.”

She added: "Americans of all backgrounds deserve an independent Supreme Court that interprets our Constitution and laws as they are written, and I believe I can serve my country by playing that role."


Barrett said she appreciated the legacy of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, saying, “I will be forever grateful for the path she marked and the life she led.”

She also noted that she would be the first mother of school-age children to serve on the bench, and the only sitting justice who didn't attend school at Harvard or Yale.
