Senate Confirms Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court

The Senate voted to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday night, making her the third justice to join the nation’s highest court under President Donald Trump.The Senate confirmed Barrett along partisan lines, 52-48.Barrett will become the third justice to join the Supreme Court since Trump took office, after a Senate Republican majority confirmed Judges Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch to the court.Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that the confirmation of Barrett “will go down as one of the darkest days in the 231-year history of the United States Senate.”The Senate vote concludes a relatively undramatic confirmation process compared to Kavanaugh’s tumultuous confirmation to the Supreme Court.
