Amy Coney Barrett set for Day 2 of confirmation hearing
"The Senate Judiciary Committee returns this morning for day two of Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. On the first day. Yesterday, we heard opening statements from members of the committee. Republicans made the case for Barrett's confirmation. Here's Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham. There's nothing unconstitutional about this process. This is a vacancy that's occurred there tragic loss of a great woman. And we're going to feel that they could see with another great woman. Democrats, meanwhile, said they're Republican colleagues are rushing this effort, and they tried to paint Barrett as a threat to the affordable care act. Now today, members will get their chance to ask her questions directly. We've got NPR Congressional reporter client great solace with us this morning. Hi, Claudia. Hi, Rachel. So what did each party the members of the committee Democrats and Republicans? What did they try to accomplish in the first day hearings yesterday? This was an opportunity for senators to frame her nomination. They did most of the talking. After all, Republicans painted bared as a worthy successor to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but in the mold of barrettes mentor and that's the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Democrats underscored the rush to confirm Barrett in the midst of a pandemic. Remember Two of the GOP members tested positive for the illness this month, and one Mike Lee of Utah, showed up yesterday, less than two weeks after his diagnosis. He also showcased what at what's at stake. Senator Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, who also sits on the committee dialed in to participate. Let's take a listen By replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with someone who will undo her legacy. President Trump is attempting to roll that Americans rides the decades to come. So Democrats highlighted concerns that barrettes nomination is being rushed so she could be seated in time if there's a dispute tied to the presidential election and to rule on an affordable care act case that will come before the court next month. So they shared worries that she could limit the A or abortion rights tied to the landmark case. Roe v. Wade. Republicans, meanwhile, tried to portray Democrats is anti Catholic, even though not one raised the religious belief issue right so yesterday was all about opening statements, and Barrett herself gave her statement what we learned for that. She said. Although she was nominated to succeed Ginsberg, no one could ever take her place. She said she closely followed Scalia's judicial philosophy. She clerked for him. Let's take a listen. His judicial philosophy was straightforward. A judge must apply the law as it is written. Not as she wishes it worked. Sometimes that approach met reaching results that he did not like. But as he put it in one of his best known opinions, that is what it means to say that we have a government of laws and not of men. She also noted that the courts have a vital responsibility to enforce the rule of law, but that policy decisions are better left to the legislative branch. So today, the official questioning begins, right and presumably, we're going to hear a lot of what we heard yesterday on the affordable care act, but in the form of questions to Judge Barrett, yes, members will question Barrett on our position on a lot of these key issues such as health care, an abortion rights. Each senator will get 30 minutes to question Barrett. So with 22 members, this could prove to be a much longer day. Republicans will use this to highlight her conservative judicial record. While Democrats will grill Barrett on conflicts of interest and how she'd rule on future cases will press her again recused herself in some of these instances, such as the day or if there's a dispute with the election, But as she's done during private calls with Democrats, you'll likely declined to make such commitments or share how she might rule on these issues

"mike lee" Discussed on Pat Gray Unleashed
"Nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three Pat unleashed on Twitter. We are joined this morning by the Senator Mike Lee from Utah. Mike, welcome. Thank you. Great tabby here. You know, I saw you. I think the interview is at about five thirty on FOX the other day, I thought, wow, he's getting up early in DC. And then it turned out. It was recorded like some other day. Right. So I thought okay, he's not that. But here you are seven thirty central time, which is admirable not a lot of senators are getting. Yeah. That's true. We're necessarily before four PM it's been heavy party night before exactly actually I thought that was live and felt like it was five AM on these. I think it may have been live. It was the one you did with Steve Doocy. Right. That was totally life. Okay. Well, that's true. That's great look at you. All right. So you've got a new book out our lost declaration, America's fight against tyranny from King George to deep state. I love the title in in the deep state part of it sounds kind of kooky conspiratorial. But it really exists doesn't it? I mean, there is a deep state. There is a deep state itself. Perpetuating the swamp as we say doesn't want to be drained it's conscious of its self, and it bites very nature will perpetuate itself unless we stop it. And how do we stop it? The best way we can stop it. It's to understand the true nature of the problem. We have over time succumbed to this notion that government is that the store of blessings of benefits of rights, and it's not it's one of the reasons why I wrote our loss declaration, I want people to reconnect with the declaration of independence and understand that government over. Each can happen even in Democratic Republic like ours, even at a place where we elect our officials. It happens when we don't recognize limits around government's power, and thank you so much for using the term Democratic Republic, go out of my mind with the elected officials to keep calling us, a democracy, our democracy this and that we're not and into me the big problem with that is democracy is now kind of code for socialism code for. Yeah, we're taking it to a different place, and they just hide behind that. Right. And they'll use the word democracy. So as to cloak what they want to do with government. Right. Make it all legitimate. It's like the old Canard about democracy being to wolves and a pig voting on what they want to have for lunch right eights, not gonna end. Well, you're in the minority. And when when we say of us is democratic socialism, or it's okay. Because we. We have a democracy for the government to do all sorts of things that it shouldn't be doing because democracy makes it okay? It's not true. Right. And that's why I think it's important to point out on a regular basis. We're not in a bunker c in the founders talked about that often how this is not a democracy because democracies don't work democracy suck. And they definitely thought. So I was fascinated that young nice tweet from the president Senator Mike Lee of the great state of Utah's written, a wonderful new book, entitled our loss declaration, highly recommended. That's nice you shot. It is nice. He he recognizes that he wouldn't beings have rights, and yeah, no. He's a president who has done a lot to rein in government. Have you been surprised because I've been surprised? Yeah. Look much better job than I thought he was going to do. I had concerns going into it. And and didn't make my concerns secret. Right. But looking back I can say I have been very pleasantly surprised I've had a good reaction to the fact that this is a man who actually did what he said he was going to do in office. Right.

There is a canary in the coalmine coming up that younger voters just aren't as interested. It seems like in conservative values. What is it about our messaging that isn't getting across that the Democrats are so doing so effectively I think a lot about this think one of the messages that we feel to get across what it means to be a conservative what it means to be a liberal villains have been substantially blurred in recent years to the point that I sometimes wonder what best describes my political ideology. It's one of the reasons why I wrote this book Los de question, I want to focus in on the fact, we should fear. The accumulation of power when one person or one group of people games too much power people suffer. It was true. In the time of King, George the third and it's true today. We have an entire.

"That's our view on the flipside. People would say with justification that if the mere allegation with no corroboration is sufficient to disqualify someone, we've entered a new phrase phase that we probably don't want to. I don't know. I don't do. I don't know if I believed him either. I just did it's okay by the way in the world we live in, it's okay to not know. Sometimes not pick a ZD and that's where politics has gone. Now, if any Senator or any member of the house expresses any doubt for admits that they don't know the answer or that they might learn something from a hearing. There were only three or four of us who went into the initial hearing of saying that we want to learn what happened in the hearing and hadn't already announced publicly how we would vote. And that's where politics has gone because I can tell you you, you get it from both sides and people make the choice in politics now that you only want to be arraigned by one side and not both sides, and that's, that's the real problem to the question that I have free sort of goes along with. You know what? What sunny AST? And that is if there's a modicum of doubt because it's not just what. What she was saying, but also how people comporting did he say, no, I never drank. And then maybe I drank and then I kinda drank. And then I think I might have passed a beer once when you have all of that, does that not give? Is that not enough reason to take a break and say, we need to get a different candidate, which the the woman's name, any Comey Barrett, or I personally liked Mike Lee as to you, you know, so wine.

If you had doubt because I think I heard you say, I'm not sure. I don't know we. So I'm just curious. Sure. That's a ballad position that you can take in.

And I didn't like his interaction with some of the senators in particular Clovis, and I thought, but then you weigh that against what he has done when he was on the court. And when you ask those that he served with his colleagues, his clerks and others was a model of decorum and decency, and I think that that should count for something. All right.
