    It really doesn’t matter what she says or doesn’t say. It’s already set up.

  2. That’s not what he was referring to, Barrett, and you know it.

      Of course she knows it. She figures she’s going to be confirmed no matter what, so she’s dancing around their questions.

  3. Bill Barr has a new accomplice….

  4. When the SC accpeted Bush’s appeal, and decided it, they were voting twice in the same illegal. That is a felony.

    If this was a job interview I would have asked her to leave already, she has answered nothing or done anything to sell her position to be chosen.

  6. They decide which ballots to count, as she literally helped do in Florida when she was part of the 2000 Bush campaign’s legal team.

    Kavanaugh was there too, what a coincidence!

    She’s going to do trump’s bidding for him when he tells her to jump she’s going to jump!!

  8. She should at the very least commit to recusing herself from this election.

    “Appearance of impropriety” doesn’t begin to describe it

    • You surely don’t think they’re concerned about ‘appearance of impropriety’ do you? Or ‘integrity’ as normal folk would see it.

    • Trump’s upcoming re-election is what the American people want & demand. 🌊

    • @PJ NIC Who is “they”? This is my opinion, that to have a justice rushed in right before an election and then rule on that election’s outcome looks corrupt af

    This mess is one of the reasons why people are showing up polling stations @ 3 AM.

    That`s a Blow for Trump…’The Supreme Court Doesn’t Cast Ballots’‌

    • No it’s not ! Unfortunately – the play will be the are protecting the vote from fraud by throwing out mail in ballots 😥

    and yet she was involved with the Gore v Bush debacle. her, Kavanaugh, and justice Robert where on the team to steal the election from Gore.

  12. In other news….Barron just tested positive for the corona.
    His mom, Ivanka, must be beside herself! 😲 😂🤣

  13. If you challenge her she shuts down, if you ask her she is more forth coming.

  14. Who in their right minds would ever trust this evasive, fundamentalist female ayatollah?

  15. The GOP wants to pretend that it doesn’t matter which party chooses the judges, so why don’t they wait until after the election if it doesn’t matter?

  16. The constitution is clear about Presidential elections.
    Voting on “the Tuesday next after the first Monday in the month of November”
    Meeting of the Electoral College 15th od December
    The 20th Amendment requires the new Congress to convene at noon on January 3, unless the previous Congress passes a law changing the date. This schedule, however, is set without consideration of a possible Electoral College tie, of historical precedent, nor of the Constitutional requirement that an “immediate” choice be made in such an event.
    At no point is the Court involved in the election of the President.

  17. Yep, we should take from this that she will have no problem using her court seat to thwart the will of the people.

    • Tessmage Tessera | October 14, 2020 at 6:11 PM | Reply

      And that’s when millions of patriotic Americans will surround the White House and burn it down with Trump inside. We don’t allow dictators in our country.

  18. So courts should not involve themselves in heinous gerrymandering, because it’s too difficult.

  19. This slippery eel is McConnell’s doppelganger. trump’s minions may think they are “owning the libs” but the entire nation is going to suffer from her appointment.

    Barrett: ” People cast votes but if they’re not for the right person then yes, I’ll vote in Trump’s favor”
