“I look forward to seeing Amy Connie Barrett elected by the President. I wholeheartedly support that appointment,” Lee told host Martha McCullum.
“She’s got a proven track record. She understands the difference between judging and legislating. She understands that she’s there to interpret the law based on words rather than what some social scientist or lawyer wants. That is the person we need in the U.S. Supreme Court. I think so, ”he said.
Earlier on Tuesday, Trump said he would announce his candidate Saturday.
When McCullum mentioned that Judge Barbara Lagova would meet with Trump this weekend, when asked by Barrett why Barrett was a better choice, the senator replied that Barrett was “someone who has devoted his entire life to conservative policies, especially rhetoric and originality, including policies.”
“He worked as a legal clerk for justice [Antonin] Scolia and it is on the axis of Justice Scolia and Justice [Samuel] Alito and Justice [Clarence] “We want President Trump to name a vacancy in the Supreme Court,” Thomas said.
“Amy Connie Barrett is exactly that kind of candidate. That’s why I hope and expect her to be.”
