Sen. Dick Durban asked Graham to slow-down his approach; arguing two minority members were not currently present.

“Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham set October 22 as the date for the vote Thursday morning, despite pushback from Democrats, as Republicans are trying to confirm Barrett before the November 3 election. After the vote passes the committee, it can then be brought to the floor for a full vote in the Senate,” writes the Daily Caller.

BARRETT to FEINSTEIN: ‘I Don’t Have Any Agenda’ and Will ‘Stick to the Rule of Law to Decide Cases’

posted by Hannity Staff - 2 days ago

Judge Amy Coney Barrett fired-back at Sen. Dianne Feinstein when pressed on whether she has a “political agenda” for the Supreme Court; stating her “only agenda is to stick to the rule of law and decide cases as they come.”

“On something that is really a major cause with a major effect on over half of the population of this country, it’s distressing not to get a straight answer. Do you agree with Justice Scalia’s view that ‘Roe’ was wrongly decide?” asked Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

“I understand why you’re asking the question. But I can’t pre-commit. I don’t have any agenda. I have an agenda to stick to the rule of law and decide cases as they come,” fired-back Judge Barrett.
