Courtesy of the Gateway Pundit – Today marks the second confirmation hearing for Amy Coney Barrett, Trump’s nominee for the vacant spot on the bench of the Supreme Court of the United States Senator Mazie Hirono, a Democrat member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, asks Judge Barrett a set of questions that Hirono “asks each nominee these two questions:”
Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors…
Committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?…

These “common” questions from Senator Hirono should not come as a surprise. Justice Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee back in 2018 that replaced Justice Anthony Kenndey who had just retired from the bench, survived an onslaught of rape accusations that he supposedly committed while he was in high school. Now there’s hope for Judge Barrett as she won’t endure rape allegations; however, what does this mean for her in the coming hearings? Will the Democrats attempt to dig and/or fabricate something from her past? Only time will tell.
Not only is Judge Barrett’s character sound, but her intellectual capacity is stunning when Senator Cornyn accused the judge of using reference notes to answer questions earlier today, as previously reported by 100%FedUp.
Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett demonstrated the depths of her judicial knowledge on Tuesday as she responded to hours of questioning with zero notes in front of her.
The judge was pressed on her legal views during day two of her confirmation hearings and recalled judgment after judgment, of hers and of other courts, when GOP Sen. John Cornyn asked her after several hours how she had prepared.
“You know most of us have multiple notebooks and notes and books and things like that in front of us,” Cornyn said.
“Can you hold up what you’ve been referring to in answering our questions?” he asked. Then this happened!
Sen. Cornyn just asked Amy Coney Barrett to hold up her notes she brought with her.
She held up a blank piece of paper. She isn't taking notes. She's that smart. pic.twitter.com/CmoFgMmTvt

Coney Barrett broke into a smile and held up a blank notepad as the hearing room broke into laughter.
“Is there anything on it?” Cornyn pressed.
“The letterhead that says ‘United States Senate,’” Coney Barrett responded.
“That’s impressive,” he said.

Barrett, 48, was nominated last month to fill the seat of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The New Orleans native who serves as a circuit judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit has been lauded as a brilliant legal mind but unfortunately, the radical left has attacked her Catholic views.
