    (Oct 2) Watch live as protesters gather in Washington, D.C. as the Senate votes on Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court on Monday, October 26, 2020. Barrett is on the cusp of confirmation, with the Senate ready to vote Monday night to elevate her to the Supreme Court and Justice Clarence Thomas prepared to administer her oath at the White House eight days before the presidential election. Barrett, President Donald Trump’s choice to replace the liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died of cancer on Sept. 18, will help create a 6-3 conservative majority on the court. Thomas will administer the Constitutional Oath to Barrett at the White House on Monday night, according to a senior White House official. It’s one of two oaths she must take before ascending to the court. The stage was set for her confirmation Sunday when the Senate, on a party-line vote, broke a Democratic filibuster and left her swift elevation all but certain. In a final piece of controversy after weeks of partisan acrimony over the confirmation, Democrats urged Vice President Mike Pence not to be present at Monday’s vote as the Senate’s presiding officer, since several of his top aides or advisers tested positive for the coronavirus.
