#AmyConeyBarrett confirmed! Fast-tracked to the Supreme Court! [Details]

Amy Coney Barrett was just sworn in as the 115th Supreme Court justice in a ceremony at the White House yesterday.

She gave a quick speech, promising to carry out her duties independently from the presidency, congress and her own private beliefs.

President Trump’s pick to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was confirmed by the Senate Monday with a final tally of 52 to 48 … with Senator Susan Collins as the only Republican to join every Senate Democrat in voting no.

The confirmation comes just 8 days before Election Day and after Barrett’s nomination was fast-tracked despite an outcry from Democrats, who think the American people should have a say in the makeup of the highest court in the land.

Abortion rights, the Affordable Care Act, LGBTQ rights, voting rights and tons of other fundamental issues and policies are now squarely in the crosshairs of the justices.
