The Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett concluded Thursday. Here are some of Judge Barrett's most attention grabbing answers from the proceedings. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:
The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday scheduled an Oct. 22 vote on whether to approve Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court in a rowdy hearing in which Democrats made procedural objections and said the rush to confirm the nominee was unprecedented.
As the hearing unfolded in Washington, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reportedly said in Kentucky that the Senate had the votes to confirm Barrett to the high court, essentially assuring that the efforts by Democrats to delay her confirmation will be unsuccessful.
McConnell, who was in his home state to cast his ballot, said he expects to bring Barrett’s nomination to the Senate floor on Oct. 23, Bloomberg News reported. That time frame would allow her to be seated ahead of the Nov. 3 election between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee.
There was little doubt that Republicans, who hold 53 seats in the Senate, would have the necessary votes, though Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine have objected. Trump has repeatedly pressed for Barrett to be seated in time to resolve any election disputes that arise.
The developments came after Barrett faced two days of intense but civil marathon questioning by senators on the Judiciary Committee on Tuesday and Wednesday. Barrett is expected to be confirmed by the committee by a party line vote, with all 12 Republicans in her favor and 10 Democrats opposed.
Democratic senators tried in vain to derail Thursday’s committee hearing. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., objected to the GOP effort to schedule the vote by noting that he was the only Democrat in the room, and that the rules required at least two members of the minority party to be present.
Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., pushed on anyway.
“If we create this problem for you in the future, you are going to do what I am going to do, which is move forward with the business of the committee,” Graham told him.
Some Democrats, who had been waiting outside the hearing room, entered and objected to Graham’s move.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said the process was a “rush” and a “sham” and motioned to adjourn the hearing, prompting a round of speeches by members of the committee.

Barrett danced around questions that would expose the Presidents plans and answered the specific question Trump wished her to speak about which was Voter fraud. It's obvious Trump has made an agreement with her before selecting her for the position.

[Nov 22] Verified pandemic science proof of U.S. COVID-19 % FATALITIES TRENDING DOWN: 2.75 % [Oct 22] to 2.12% [Nov 21]; Also, in comparison, e.g., Nov 2 to [Nov 21]: - Germany 1.97,[1.56] - NL 2.11,[1.86] - Finland 2.20,[1.91] - U.S. 2.51,[2.12] - Mexico 9.79,[9.82] (NO BORDER may also affected U.S. %) - These are just a few examples of published daily data by JHU, WHO, ECDC, NHC, DXY, CDC of fatalities % in positively diagnosed victims in about 1OO nations provided by thousands of scientists, nurses and health workers, that, for months, are hidden or deleted by U.S. media. Instead it scares voters by publishing increasing and accelerating world biggest US COVID-19 cases/deaths. FACTS. But these big Nos. reflect big US population. ACCELERATION? By improved detection techs, methods & infected victims more willing to declare and trust hospitals, and their alleged Nos.-inflation (paid per case). Unequivocally, that ASYMMETRY had moved voters against the regime by Unrepairable Election Invalidations, [UEI], that none can fix today. No alternative, no-escape is thus left to heal the Divided Nation but by national runoff. We anticipate two runoff goods, at least: UEI evaporate if ordered & guided by the Supreme Court Authority AND various reported countries' pretext to respond to pro & cons of WH attack on Iran (published by NYT), to their drawers return by runoff.

You know what amazes me? All comments here, from people who actually watched her and listened to her, are not bad comments. I mean, people who actually took their time and listened to what she has to say. All the hate comes from the very fact that she was nominated by Donald Trump. I am sure if more people heard her they would definitely change their mind God bless her heart

[Nov 20] What if election finality is decided only on domestic elements? REPORTED WORLDWIDE RESPONSES to NYT publication on pro & cones of US-IRAN ACT include Russian taking Ukraine? China Taiwan? Vietnam? Philippines? and responses by Iran, SA, Israel, Taliban, Hezbollah, Turkey? And US, EU, NATO, AU, NZ re-responding? and Market-Economy reactions? Can we shed international & domestic light on some remnant dark corners of unrepairable election invalidations, [UEI], that none can fix? Unlike in 2000, SC today has not yet effected its authority to heal today's runaway horizons of Nation-Divided? If that proves unattainable, as expected, No Alternative, No-Escape is left but national runoff. We anticipate two runoff goods, at least: UEI evaporate and pretext for the aforementioned responses to drawers return. More at IN and Utube..

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are blind leaders, I mean those who do not know the Truth(Bible) are blind. How can a blind people lead a great nation like America, It is a utter shame and very dangerous for USA to have Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as their president and Vice president. The truth is they are not official candidate as President and Vice president. Hope with the grace of God and justice truth will win, and Mr. Trump and Mike Pence who honor and fear God will lead this great nation well for four more years. God bless America.

You missed the course on 'civics 101'. Judges can't be political and so I am glad she stayed clear of political questions! She is the perrrfect one for that position! Obviously, since you criticized her moving around political questions that were political in nature not a judicial one. She is ON POINT! And guess what? You just showed your lack of credibility in understanding civics and you are advising us to be 'careful'! Your piece of advice is dangerous to democracy!!! CIVICS IS NOT THE SAME AS BEING POLITICAL!

I'm about as liberal as you can be without being a full blown socialist and I think her answers were right on par for what we should expect from a Supreme Court Justice. No Justice should form an opinion on any controversial and current topic without first hearing legal arguments from both sides and reviewing past legal briefs on a case that may influence their ruling, especially when the said topic has the power to completely change current legal precedent and procedure. A judges personal political views should hold absolutely no sway over legal decision making... with that being said I'm not at all saying that I think she is qualified to sit on the most powerful bench of the Judicial Branch as she has only been a judge for 3 years and practicing law for less than 2 decades. The position she was assigned for is one of the few positions where I would say that both age and experience are vitally integral to ability and performance.

Every Dem state: large cities with great skylines. High tax rates, high property prices, high cost of living, uncontrolled traffic, non existent public transport even after having very big economies(nyc exception). Every Rep state: fewer large cities, low tax rate, low property prices, low cost of living, manageable traffic ( Texas exception). Republicans gave ALWAYS been better at handling economics like real estate, fuel, taxes, inflation, etc.
