    US supreme court nominee Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in during Monday’s opening confirmation hearing before the Senate judiciary committee and she told senators she was humbled to be considered to fill the seat left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg. President Donald Trump had formally nominated Barrett on 26 September. Trump’s nomination of Barrett to a vacancy created by the death last month of Justice Ginsburg just weeks before the election enraged Democrats, still furious about Republicans’ refusal to consider a nominee from Democratic President Barack Obama some 10 months before the 2016 election.
