Listen to this article
The Senate will hold a confirmation vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court this evening. We expect she’ll be confirmed.
Watch deliberations live:
Justice Clarence Thomas is expected to conduct the ceremony swearing in Barrett at 9 PM ET tonight (we’ll have a post on that, too).

A much needed win just before the election! Congratulations Justice Barrett!
Great jobs all around — Graham, McConnell, and fifty other GOP Senators.
RBG’s death and this nomination just plain took the wind out of the Democrats’ sails, didn’t it?
Even their threats of post-election rioting have begun to sound hollow.
The wounded beast roars the loudest just before it falls down.
Dems will try to pack the court now. Republicans should pass an amendment fixing the court size.
They could do it easily enough – just propose the amendment and propose packing at the same time.
Dems will be forced to support the amendment.
Of course the surrender monkeys in the caucus would find a way to make sure it didn’t happen.
An amendment requires 2/3 of each house, and then 3/4 of the state legislatures. The Republicans don’t have 2/3 of the senate, let alone the house. If they propose both the amendment and the packing, the Dems will simply vote against both. Then when/if they take the senate they pass the packing.
2/3 of the states may call for a constitutional convention and the proposed amendments are passed with 3/4 of the states approval. Does not require approval by the legislature.
Has never happened this way,
Did Collins remain irrelevant? Here’s to Maine getting rid of a petulant servant of socialism.
