On day two of the Senate confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, CNN’s chief national correspondent John King and chief political correspondent Dana Bash reported that Democrats think Judge Barrett has been “very impressive” and have “handled herself well”.
“So far, even from the accounts I’m getting from Democrats, they believe she– they may not like the answers, but they think she’s been very impressive– handled herself well and not made any mistakes,” King told the panel.
Dana Bash responded to John King saying, “Absolutely. I’ve been hearing the same thing from Democrats.”
“And you know what she has done is try to follow the lead of people who have been nominated before her, even by Democratic presidents,” she continued.
“And she even cited [Justice] Elena Kagan. She cited Ruth Badger Ginsburg,” Bash added.
The Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday began at roughly 9 a.m. ET, with each senator taking their turn to press Judge Barrett over issues related to her background, past judicial decisions, overall judicial philosophy, hot-button legal issues such as abortion or health care, or President Trump.
