Schumer says Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett “must recuse herself”

Global News published this video item, entitled “Schumer says Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett “must recuse herself”” – below is their description.

With the Senate hearing to consider Judge Amy Coney Barrett as the next associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court set to begin Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Sunday that given her serious conflicts of interest, Judge Barrett must immediately pledge to recuse herself from decisions involving the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the 2020 presidential election. Sen. Schumer said should she even be confirmed through an already illegitimate, dangerous and widely unpopular nomination process, that Judge Barrett must do the right thing and recuse now. Schumer detailed how Judge Barrett has already made it clear she stands against the ACA and health care protections Americans have come to depend upon. Sen. Schumer also said President Donald Trump has all but said he desperately needs Judge Barrett on the high court just in case the 2020 election results require a Supreme Court decision. Schumer said these variables are unprecedented and that they demand recusal, especially with the court scheduled to decide on the ACA shortly after the November election. Schumer said recusal would be the bare minimum for Judge Barrett to commit to as he makes his case on behalf of the American people, who overwhelmingly agree.
