Sen. Cornyn tells Judge Barrett “I’m confident that at the end of this process you will be confirmed”

Moments ago Republican Senator John Cornyn said in his opening statement to Judge Barrett “I’m confident that at the end of this process you will be confirmed.”

Cornyn also tweeted earlier:

“The Senate Judiciary Committee undertakes no more important task than considering a nominee to the United States Supreme Court.”

“Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s credentials and qualifications have impressed some of the brightest judicial and legal minds – even those who may disagree with her. I’m looking forward to hearing more from her during this week’s Judiciary hearings.”

“Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), up for reelection in Nov., touts Barrett’s ability to disagree but be not disagreeable. Says he gets a question from his constituents—asks how she and her husband manage careers and family. Says he’s confident she will be confirmed.”
