Senators weigh COVID risk for Barrett Supreme Court hearing

Barrett vows to be a justice “fearless of criticism" as the Senate charges ahead with confirmation hearings on President Donald Trump’s pick just weeks before Election Day and as the country struggles to contain the coronavirus.

The committee released a letter Sunday from the Architect of the Capitol saying the hearing room has been set up in consultation with the Office of Attending Physician.

Some senators are staying away, attending remotely.

Barrett draws on faith and family in prepared opening remarks for hearings that start Monday.

She says she would bring “a few new perspectives” as the first mother of school-age children on the court.
