The likely confirmation hearing schedule in the Senate Judiciary Committee for Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump’s expected pick for the Supreme Court vacancy, is being circulated to members of the Senate, according to three people familiar with the process.
The schedule would be as follows:
- The hearing would begin Oct. 12 with opening statements
- Oct. 13 would be the first round of questioning
- Oct. 14 would be the second round of the questioning
- Finally, there would be closed session on Oct. 15 with outside witnesses
Remember: This schedule is subject to change if something unexpected comes up in the next few weeks, but Republicans are pretty locked in on this timeline. It would tee up a Senate floor vote shortly before Election Day.
