Washington, D.C.--This morning, U.S. Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), a member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, met with U.S. Circuit Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Donald J. Trump’s nominee to be an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Meetings and phone calls with Senators mark the start of Judge Barrett’s confirmation process.
“I had a great meeting with Judge Amy Coney Barrett today to discuss her fitness for the Supreme Court,” said Crapo following the meeting. “Her legal acumen, commitment to the Constitution and scholarly experience are exemplary. Judge Barrett is conscientious in her application of jurisprudential principles. She is preeminently qualified and has assured me she will interpret the law as it is written. I look forward to her coming before the Judiciary Committee in a couple of weeks to speak further about her experience and qualifications, and to answer questions about her judicial philosophy more deeply.”
