WASHINGTON, D.C. – This morning, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, met with President Trump’s nominee to serve on the United States Supreme Court, Judge Amy Coney Barrett. She gave the following statement after the meeting.

“After my conversation with Judge Amy Coney Barrett today, I understand why attorneys and legal experts describe her as the finest constitutional scholar of her generation.  As a professor, she shared her love of the law with her students and shaped countless careers through patient instruction. As an attorney and judge, her diligent application of the law has contributed to a truly impressive body of work and a cohesive view of the judiciary’s role. In the coming weeks I look forward to listening as Judge Barrett presents her record before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and demonstrates her ability to rule fairly, justly, and with utmost faith to the Constitution.”'
