BREAKING: The Senate confirms Amy Coney Barrett to the US Supreme Court with a 52-48 vote, solidifying the court's conservative majority

The Senate is expected to confirm President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett this evening. Follow here for the latest.

Pennsylvania ballot extensions: Republicans in Pennsylvania asked the Supreme Court on Friday to block a ballot receipt extension that would allow them to be counted if they are received within three days of Election Day — even if they do not have a legible postmark.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court denies another bid by Trump allies to halt election certification Pennsylvania high court throws out challenge to mail-in ballots Former FBI official discusses the assassination of Iranian scientist and Iran's response

Wisconsin ballot counting and requests: Three Wisconsin petitions before the court concern Democrats who are asking the justices to allow the counting of ballots six days after the election and whether Covid-19 vulnerable voters and others in the state can secure replacement mail-in ballots by email.

Minnesota congressional election date: A Republican candidate for Minnesota's 2nd Congressional District is asking the justices to intervene in a case concerning whether his election takes place on Nov. 3 or on Feb. 9, after the recent death of Legal Marijuana Now Party candidate Adam Weeks caused the contest to be moved to next year as required by state law.

Mississippi abortion case: As abortion rights backers and opponents spar over whether Barrett's confirmation would mean the end of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark Supreme Court decision, the justices will consider Friday whether or not to hear a case that could directly consider the precedent. The case pertains to Mississippi's 15-week abortion ban, which Republican Gov. Phil Bryant signed into law in 2018. The law made exceptions only for medical emergencies or cases in which there's a"severe fetal abnormality," but not for incidents of rape or incest. A federal judge in Mississippi struck down the law in November 2018, and the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ruling late last year.

Devil's greatest trick.. The Bidens and Tony Bobulinski Wow finally not a fake news story, but just in case I will check Fox news 😉😉😉 symichelen I love her ❤️ When Trump comes calling on the Supreme Court for help, they still will oppose him. Excellent news💯🇺🇸💯🇺🇸 Half half .... not good ... division in country

That's a good news!! This is so un fortunate , what could she be saying... Regardless of who was selected, it was totally disrespectful to appoint anyone prior to the election. fascism won once again. Neo nazi confederate GOP is bringing our country back to 1850 one step at a time. My generation will inherit this country and change it for the better once all these old white people die out with their hordes of gold buried with them

do a little dance sing a little song, whether i like it or not im trumps puppet CorruptAndComplicitGOP CorruptCourts CorruptSCOTUS So cute NewsCNNMissed I really do not understand why she is even classified as a judge Just because you have a degree does not make her qualified What the hell is wrong with America

Fastest blow job ever Need to have the video that happened when Merrick Garland in 2016 after he was selected for SCOTUS. The video documentation of the dishonesty and main reason for the distrust of the politicians representing the US GOP Senators. They can't be trusted and need to vote honest back. At least something great happened in 2020

I want to know the names of those senators who voted for Amy Barrett to the Supreme Court. So fucking much for 'letting the people decide'. McConnell should be dragged for this. I told ya that the bluster about arrows in their quiver will come to naught. While they talked, the GOP worked. Shes s disgrace!

you spelled packed wrong cnn disgraceful. gop will pay a price. not all americans are stupid nd want conservtive views dominating our lives. Why are you Leftist media shoveling this crap down the throats of the people, the Supreme Court is supposed to be non partisan non political and to go by Only what stands to Our Constitution, your angry because Your Party cannot use Justice Amy as a pawn,she Can't be bought.

“Democrats are outraged that a black Supreme Court Justice will swear-in a female Supreme Court Justice tonight I thought they were supposed to be the 'party of diversity?' 🤔 🗣🗣🗣Shorty ain’t qualified You can't stop the TRUMP TRAIN arriving at a station near you 2020 For now... Sickening!! Of course they did.

52-48 vote & the verb Solidify shld not be used congruently. Yesssss! 💛👏❤️🥰 Biden will alter the status quo when he's elected as the next President. – Unknown We are proud of her. Let the gays and pro abortionists go and hide their faces in shame. America shall be great again. In God we Trust, not in obamacare!!!

It became true, Louise Knott Ahern weezwrites: 'Ruth Bader Ginsburg is [going to be] replaced by a woman who walked through every door that Ginsburg opened for her so she can promptly use her position to shut them all for others behind her.' Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. I don’t drink but when Trump leaves the White House . I will drink champagne 😂😂😂😂

Enjoy this last gasp Trumpy. In three weeks time you will be back where you belong. And it ain’t the White House. And take the whole bloody clan with you. You give Biden grief over his son. You’ve given every member of your family and their dogs jobs. Sickening amoral ghoul. Anyone of integrity would have respected the tradition she is just another right wing fascist that hates America. Another nail in your coffin, america

A sad day for women 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 Incredibly disheartening to see Trump solidify the legacy of his disastrous presidency by appointing someone like her onto the senate. Oh look... Another nazi puppet. 52-48, very popular pick, Ginsburg was like 96-4. With this improper political action in our judicial branch, the legislative and executive branches must count on voters to instill democratic values in the upcoming election in order to require an interdependent cooperation for individuals and not a large corporate oligarchy.

If Donald Trump can repeal Obamacare we can repeal this judge from the seat basically her name have an ascetic attached to it. It’s faulty and not approving any proper manner. NO stress. She just proved her 'independence' to the world .. NO mask standing, talking, hugging the covid master realDonaldTrump into the covidWHITEhouse with no social distancing, she will die soon.

Amerikkka. Dirty, cheating, and sneaky gangsters, Always will be. AmyConeyBarrett AmyConeyBarrettSCOTUS SupremeCourtConfirmation My sincere condolences. The end of progressive democratic justice in the USA? However, maybe it's a sign that it's time to rethink the mechanisms of a judicial system that allows such an unequal balance of opinion.

Noooo American democracy like its politics malleable and corrupted. Keep the shit to yourself. Don't try to export this garbage. We don't need your rubbish. Trumpf's slave. She looks like she’s going to pass some bad shit What a disgrace. In the hearings she made ot perfectly clear she is unfit for the SC. Just as mr. Kavanaugh. But republicans don't care, as long as they get their agenda pushed tthrough.

My sympathy to all Americans who were hoping to live in the 21st century. Wow that is simply terrifying. Thank you President Trump, for giving the world another reason to prefer my native Canada over your disintegrating country. Not for long... packthecourt ROP knows they are kissing senates majority goodbye so they rush to stick this one in supreme court to secure power. Simple like that.

This should be changed to lessen the impact of politics on the nomination. Should at least require 75% of the vote.

Hahahah beautiful! Well done Amy! ❤️ VOTE. Make your family vote. Get your neighbors to vote. Get your coworkers to vote. Everyone. Chapeau! Love 💕🌺🙏// ===== 🦸‍♂️🐶👍🇮🇹🇺🇸🌺💰🎈💕🙏// Lock her up!

I just got very nauseous. 🤮 shes been a judge for literally only three years and didn’t even know what the first amendment was i- Congratulations Amy! A woman of integrity. Grey win for America Great win for people of good morals Heartbreak for corrupt and immoral people. You love to see it. From a European point of view it's crazy to have SCOTUS politically appointed. This shoul be done by the American Bar Association to avoid any political association.

Guess we need 21 Supreme Court justices then I’ve never been so worried about the future marianaluna223 I don’t even live in the US and this is a gut punch. VanJones68 donlemon a very important thing to consider. Great 😩 Bye gay rights nice knowing you Hopefully we'll stop making it legal to murder innocent babies.

All her supporters ab to be walking around like The Republican hypocrisy is disgusting. They should all be ashamed of themselves. Congress will expand SCOTUS and dilute the illegitimate justices. A party can only be in power for so long so it's best not to be a dick for short-term gain You are a Sinister woman

God she looks like an evil bitch doesn't she. She always seem to be looking down her nose at everyone, just like Jared does. A sad day for this great nation :( She knows this should not be happening, but yet she will be making rules that control the people of the US . Pretty Scary FASCHISTSCH !!!💩 Republicans continue court packing up to elections. Republicans denied Americans the right to choose the president and that person would nominate. Instead we got Coat Hanger Amy from Shell Oil exe family. Oh how she is cocooned and radicalized by cults.

So awful, Im so unqualified for this job AmyConeyBarrett 🤢🤢🤮🤮🤮🤮 Yea! And for a long, long time. Her last commitment is to empower women! Such a sad day for America and freedom Help make October’s political surprise a 24 hour blackout out on Halloween... ...from Trump. Give those he calls the fake media a break from the abuse. Reporting on orange pumpkins is better than hearing his voice

But isn’t she a moron? 😲🤯 And that folks is some steaming grade A malarkey HappyBirthdayHillary Jim Jordan's disgusting tweet is an effort to pock the democratic bear. He wants to drum up protests across America so it will motivate republicans across the country to vote. We shouldn't play into their hands.

So creepy to put an inexperienced nobody who does not believe in condoms or Birth Control on the Supreme Court. Wait until we ExpandTheCourt EXPANDTHECOURTS Well I guess everyone who used ivf to have a family are mass murderers 😳 Republicans as a whole officially disgust me. Each and every one of them protested against selecting a justice during an election year when Obama had the option then turn around and do it themselves. Proving they’re all liars and cheats.

Dumber? They needed 4 people to stand up for what's right. They couldn't even get that. Fucking disgusting 💪💪🇺🇸🇺🇸🤙🤙 Younger and dummer than me. Well done ‘Merica 👎👎👎 Groan I'm disgusted to be an american. if the court overturn the aca.all hell will break loose Who gives a shit, who gives a fuck. Conservative justice = do job = interpret constitution Liberal justice = dereliction of duty = vote party over constitution

The people are in trouble. Wow! So wonderful! Bad news! Congrats SCOTUS Yaaaaas Great choice!!! She is an evil woman Here we come! VoteHimOut2020 VoteBlueToEndThisNightmare VoteBlueToSaveAmerica Disgusting. She’s completely under qualified to serve, much less replace RBG. She’s a waste and a fraud nominated by a shit POTUS and joke of a senate. ALL republicans gonna get theirs in a week BidenHarris2020Landslide

Yeah! Another bad thing for the United States. but she just looks like something isn't right... lol she just looks evil... 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮💩💩💩💩💩 We have a damned Handmaiden as a SCOTUS Justice! Where will this insanity end? The GOP, the party of angry, old, greedy, conservative white men, needs to be relegated to history’s dustbin yesterday.

Raspberries 👅 Great pick! Time to impeach and replace Kavanaugh and Thomas and add a couple of experienced justices who are not religious nuts. Let's get sexual misconduct and religion out of the highest court in the nation. ScotusSham Welcome to hell! They hope you enjoy your stay. No worries. When we take over the house and senate, constitution will be updated to have Supreme Court judges retire at 70. That should take care of 2 conservative judges

Disgusting. We are fucked America keeps goin backwards illegitimatejustice Wow This is an utter disgrace - sticking w/ the administration’s MO of pushing their agenda. They are so hell bent on this instead of focusing on people who actually need help as a result of the pandemic. She will never replace RBG.

i don't know what would become of america but i am getting panick attacks for the people who lives in it & whose future look bleak with every passing news. Cool. Time to stack the courts. =D Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett!! You are a great pick and you deserve to rule! This is a sad day in history Time for another SCOVID party.

Disgusting 👎🏻 Another black mark on American history. What the GOP have done is anti American, unpatriotic and borderline treason since Trump took office. This party has proven me right & I have been saying this for months. The GOP is a cult, they are extremists and radicals. Unity no more! Major step backwards for our country!

Sad Disgusting! What a sad day for women! Just like Amy Coney Barrett has been picked for us; she will do the choices for us going forward; and not in a good way. RBG is turning over in her grave! tHe VoTeRs ShOuLd DeCiDe Let the bitching begin! Terribly SAD for ALL AMERICANS BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO‼️ 48 Vote from Senate - that's a lot . Coñgratulation to new Supreme Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett . Wishing her all the best . Hope ! She will take stand for Women's leadership & freedom .

Hope GOD smites MM Great day for America 🇺🇸 Under his eye (we are all screwed) Cry cry cry liberals.. but the best is coming next week.. this was just a drill Court never sided with people anyway. The same court also allowed slavery. Court cannot stop progress. Just get out and vote. On Hillary’s Birthday!!!!!!! Lolololololololol

Don’t fuck it up next time Dems, don’t let them get back in , do a better job Lovin’ it! And liberals now going bonkers in 3-2-1.... Fitting that Clarence Thomas will swear her in, as he had the same 52-48 confirmation vote. Until next year... 👏👏👏👏🇺🇲 YeeHa!!!!!! That’s great news, she stayed neutral and calm during the hearing, she knows the law! I am sure Democrats will create some more drama 🤪

🇺🇸 ❤️❤️❤️ACB❤️❤️❤️🇺🇸 Yabba dabba dooo! Trump2020 CarolYMorrisse1 Breaking? Breaking my heart. Only time I liked something tweeted from . ACB

Senate to vote on Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation to Supreme Court following all-night Senate sessionThe Republican-led Senate is expected to confirm Barrett to the Supreme Court in a vote Monday evening, capping off a sprint to place her on the high court before Election Day over Democratic objections. Just another way the trump administration has pushed us backwards in time. It’s INSANE we are about to confirm somebody who thinks it’s appropriate to use the N word in the work place Ask yourself if this reminds you of anything... Elderly let'em die Diseased let'em die Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid users let'em die People of color let'em die The poor, underrepresented and disenfranchised LET'EM DIE They can't wait one week. They are scared of losing and I pray they do 🙏

Cementing a fraudulent conservative majority* 🔥 Check It Out 🔥 W Barrett

Senate Republicans poised to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to Supreme CourtFor the first time in U.S. history, the Senate moved a nominee for the nation's highest court toward certain confirmation just eight days before a presidential election. Republicans made the move in a rare weekend session without the support of a single Democrat. 'We've made an important were here for those that are angy. Biden needs to correct this....13 Justices will dillute the importance and impact of a single justice. Simple.... This headline obviously was written by an angry Democrat.
