She IS THE MOTHER THAT I WISH TO EVERY CHILD HEAD TODAY. God REALLY SMILED ON MASS, AND HE GAVE US AMAZING GRACE. D. O.. Voting FOR JUDGING CORY BERWICK BECOME ASSOCIATE JUSTICE ON THE SUPREME COURT. WAS NOT JUST TO START. For ME, IT WAS MY OBLIGATION TO THE PEOPLE OF NORTH DAKOTA, AS WELL AS A HIGH PERSONAL HONOR. YOU’RE. Just OVER TWO YEARS AGO, I WAS ENGAGED IN ANOTHER HISTORIC FIGHT, A BATTLE. FOR THE SEEK THE DONALD HOLES. WHEN LATE IN THE CAMPAIGN., THE DEMOCRATIC INCUMBENT. I WAS RUNNING AGAINST, CHOSE TO ENGAGE IN THE SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST ANOTHER OUTSTANDING AMERICAN JURIST AND DECIDED TO VOTE AGAINST THE CONFIRMATION OF RIGHT KAVANAUGH. WELL THAT WEEK THAT VERY WEEK., MY OPPONENT RAISED NEARLY THREE TIMES MORE MONEY THAN I EXPECTED. The ENTIRE CAMPAIGN. THAT WEEK. THE SUPREME COURT BECAME THE NUMBER ONE ISSUE IN THE RACE. SEOUL TO SOMEHOW SUGGEST THERE’S NO WAY. I WOULD OR COULD SUGGEST THAT THIS VOTE WOULD BE DELAYED., BECAUSE TO DO SO TO SUM ALL WAIT UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION., WHEN PEOPLE FROM SOMEPLACE OTHER THAN NORTH DAKOTA.

MIGHT BE TEMPTED TO ELECT THE PRESIDENT, OTHER THAN. OTHER THAN DONALD TRUMP DENOMINATOR JURIST OTHER THAN WELL Let’S JUST SAY THE NEARLY PERFECT. ME CALL YOU BACK TO BE A SUPREME COURT. Justice WOULD RIGHTLY ANGER. The PEOPLE OF NORTH CALLED INTEGRATE DAMAGED. My CONSCIENCE, THIS IS A GREAT NIGHT., WAS GREAT DAY FOR INDIANA. In A GREAT DAY FOR AMERICA. I WAS PROUD TO CAST MY VOTE WITH GREAT ENTHUSIASM. FOR JUDGE AMY CONEY BARRETT TO SERVICES AS YOU JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT. This IS BEEN A LONG. PROCESS FOR AMERICA, BUT A FAIRLY SHORT PROCESS WITH RESPECT TO PROCEDURE. It’S BEEN A LONG PROCESS BECAUSE THERE’S BEEN GREAT EFFORTS MADE BY SENATE DEMOCRATS TO TRY AND PULL. AMY CONEY BARRETT INTO THE POLITICAL FRAY, BUT SHE RESISTED THOSE EFFORTS TIME AGAIN, DEMONSTRATING THAT SHE INTENDS TO FOLLOW THE LAW AS WRITTEN IN THE CONSTITUTION IN THE UNITED STATES.. We ONE. REPUBLICANS WANT AMERICA ONE BECAUSE AMY CONEY BARRETT DEMONSTRATED THAT SHE INTENDS TO FOLLOW THE LAW. She IS A FAITHFUL CONSTITUTIONALIST. AND WE COULDN’T BE MORE PROUD IN THE GREAT STATE OF INDIANA. One OF OUR OWN. IDEA IN JUST A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME WILL BE SWORN IN AS AN ASSOCIATE JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES. HI IT’S SUCH AN HONOR TO REPRESENT KANSANS IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE, SOMETHING I NEVER WOULD HAVE DREAMED OF IN My LIFE. AND IT’S SUCH A PRIVILEGE TO BE HERE AT A TIME IN WHICH I AMY CONEY BARRETT TO DESERVE MY VOTE, RECEIVE MY VOTE.

AS SHE BECOMES AN ASSOCIATE JUSTICE OF THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT. IT’S, A PRIVILEGE, BECAUSE RARELY IN FACT I WOULD SAY THIS – Is THE THE MOST IMPRESSIVE INDIVIDUAL THAT I’VE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO VOTE FOR. TO GO THROUGH A CONFIRMATION PROCESS, WITH. HI, AND IT IS THE PRIVILEGE OF SENT HOW LONG SOMEONE TO LISTEN TO THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT., WHO SHARES THE BELIEF THAT THE CONSTITUTION IS WRITTEN.? Is THE LAW OF THE LAND. NOT THERE TO LEGISLATE ONLY THERE TO BE A JURIST. AND I’M ALSO PLEASED THAT SHE’S FROM THE MIDWEST THAT SHE HAS, THAT MIDWEST BACKGROUND, AND I LOOK FORWARD TO HER FAITHFUL SERVICE. TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BUT, MORE IMPORTANTLY TO THE CONSTITUTION. United STATES., I WISH YOU WELL. It WAS A PRIVILEGE TO SUPPORT HER. AND CONGRATULATIONS TO AMY CONEY BARRETT THIS EVENING.. Well, I HAVE TO SAY THIS WAS PROBABLY THE THE EASIEST WAY IF WE’VE EVER HAD., JUST BECAUSE WE HAD A GREAT. STORY TO TELL WE HAD A GREAT NOMINEE. WHO WAS HER OWN BEST REPRESENTATIVE WHEN IT CAME TO CONVINCING OUT OF THE JUDICIARY, COMMITTEE UNITED STATES SENATE. But THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. SHE IS THE RIGHT PERSON TO BE THE NEXT SUPREME COURT, JUSTICE. OF THE UNITED STATES AND SO I’M GRATEFUL GET A NUMBER OF JUDICIARY COMMITTEE MEMBERS ARE WE DID HAVE. You WOULD STILL HAVE ONE HERE. AFTER THE GREAT WORK THAT THEY DID IN PREPARING FOR THIS, AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT, LIKE SOME OF MY COLLEAGUES WHO CAME BEFORE ME.

, THIS IS KIND OF WHAT WE COME HERE FOR AND IN FACT MY WAY TO THE SENATE Was PAID. BY THE UNPRECEDENTED SCHUMER FILIBUSTER OF APPELLATE COURT JUDGES BACK IN THE EARLY TWO, THOUSANDS? That WAS SOMETHING THAT AT THE TIME BECAME A MAJOR ISSUE. AROUND THE COUNTRY. It WAS PROBABLY THE PRINCIPAL ISSUE IN MY CAMPAIGN FOR THE UNITED STATES SENATE. AND SELL ITS ESPECIALLY GRATIFYING TO BE ABLE TO BE HERE THIS EVENING. AND TO HAVE YET ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO PUT A VERY WELL QUALIFIED CONSTITUTIONALIST ON THE SUPREME COURT UNITED STATES. So I, LIKE MY COLLEAGUES TO JOIN IN CONGRATULATING. AMY CONEY BARRETT, ASKED THE NEW ASSOCIATE. JUSTICE ON THE SUPREME COURT. FOR COMING TO THE UNITED STATES SENATE. I SERVED AS THE GOVERNOR OF NORTH DAKOTA FOR TEN YEARS. AND IN THAT TIME I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO APPOINT A LOT OF JUDGE. I THINK I POINTED ON. You WERE OF THE DOZEN JUDGES. MANY TODAY STATE DISTRICT COURTS., BUT ALSO TO THE STATE SUPREME COURT. AND OF COURSE, THE FIRST THING I ALWAYS LOOK FOR WAS JUDICIAL, TEMPERAMENT. AND THERE’S, NO QUESTION. THAT AMY CONEY BARRETT HAS JUDICIAL TEMPERAMENT. I DON’T THINK ANYONE CAN ARGUE THAT., BUT THE OTHER THING I ALWAYS LOOK FOR IS. A JUDGE THAT WOULD ENFORCE THE CONSTITUTION AND ENFORCE THE LAW.. Somebody WHO IS A STRICT CONSTRUCTIONIST WOULD HOLD THE CONSTITUTION, NOT LEGISLATE FROM THE BENCH. AND AGAIN AMY CONEY BARRETT JUDGE BIRTH HAS DEMONSTRATED NOT ONLY AN INCREDIBLE KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE CONSTITUTION.

AND THE LAW., BUT SHE HAS DEMONSTRATED VERY CLEARLY THAT SHE WILL POP HOLD. THE Constitution AND THE LAW AS IT IS HER DUTY. ON THE SUPREME COURT AND THAT’S WHAT’S BEST FOR MY STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA., THAT’S WHAT’S BEST FOR OUR GREAT NATION, AND SO I CONGRATULATE HER. AND WE SURE THE ABSOLUTE BEST. TODAY IS AN IMPORTANT VICTORY. The UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION. TODAY, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP DELIVERED ON ONE OF THE CENTRAL PROMISES HE MADE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO NOMINATE PRINCIPAL CONSTITUTIONALIST TO THE U. S. SUPREME COURT.. Today, THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE DELIVERED ON ONE OF THE PRINCIPAL PROMISES WE MADE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. TO CONFIRM. Principled CONSTITUTIONALIST TO THE U. S. SUPREME COURT. TO EVERYONE WHO VALUES AND CHERISHES THE CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS. TODAY WAS AN IMPORTANT MILESTONE. TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SEE OUR RIGHTS OF FREE SPEECH THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE WITHOUT CENSORSHIP. Without THE GOVERNMENT, SILENCING YOU. TODAY WAS AN IMPORTANT VICTORY.. Everyone WHO CHERISHES RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, THE FIRST LIBERTY PROTECTED IN THE FIRST CLAUSE OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT OF THE BILL OF RIGHTS, THE RIGHT TO LIVE ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH AND YOUR CONSCIENCE WITHOUT GOVERNMENT GETTING IN THE WAY. TODAY WAS AN IMPORTANT VICTORY.. Everyone WHO VALUES. The SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS THE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT TO PROTECT YOUR HOME AND YOUR FAMILY, AND YOUR LIFE. TODAY WAS AN IMPORTANT VICTORY.. The AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT PRINCIPAL CONSTITUTIONALIST ON THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT.

, AND TODAY WE HAVE CAUSE TO CELEBRATE THAT JUDGE. Amy CONEY BARRETT. IS NOW JUSTICE. Amy CONEY BARRETT., AMY CONEY BARRETT EARNED HER ELEVATION TO THE HIGHEST COURT. TONIGHT’S A GREAT NIGHT FOR HER, BUT IT’S, ALSO A GREAT NIGHT FOR COUNTRY FOR MY STATE OF OHIO AND FOR SO MANY WHO SAW HER. IN ACTION OVER THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS DURING HIS CONFIRMATION. Process. SHE EARNED HER ELEVATION TO SACRIFICE TO OUR FAMILY. HER FRIENDS. THROUGH HARD WORK, ANDREW DISTINGUISHED LEGAL CAREER, BOTH AS A TEACHER WHERE SHE WON PLAUDITS FROM ACROSS THE POLITICAL AND JUDICIAL PHILOSOPHICAL SPECTRUM. DURING WHISPERER ON THE SEVENTH CIRCUIT, WHERE FOR ALMOST THREE YEARS NOW., SHE HAS Shown ALL OF US HERE IN THE SENATE THAT WE DID THE RIGHT THING. ALMOST THREE YEARS, AGO. IN CONFIRMING HER FOR THAT POST BY A BIPARTISAN MAJORITY.. She EARNED THE RIGHT TO BE ELEVATED TO THE HIGHEST COURT TONIGHT I’M. Disappointed THAT YOU DIDN’T ONCE AGAIN GET A BIPARTISAN MAJORITY., BUT I WILL SAY: IS THE PEOPLE, THE HIGHLAND, THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA? Looked AT HER AND WATCH HER. IN ACTION. IN THE HEARINGS. DATE TO BELIEVE THAT SHE DESERVES THIS ELEVATION MAJORITY OF AMERICANS SUPPORTED THE BILL WHO TOOK TONIGHT BECAUSE DESPITE. ALL THE ATTACKS ON HER AND THE PROCESS THEY REALIZE THAT.. She HAS EARNED HIS RIGHT AND SHE WILL MAKE THEM PROUD. AS A JUSTICE, THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT. I THINK SHE HAS A ROLE TO PLAY AND WE TALKED ABOUT THIS IN OUR CONVERSATION LAST WEEK.

TO HELP US ENSURE. THAT THE FAITH IN THE SUPREME COURT BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IS STRENGTHENED.. I THINK A GREAT INSTITUTION ROSS, THE THERE’S A LOT OF THE CONGRESS HERE. A GREAT INSTITUTION WILL BE STRENGTHENED BY HER AND SHE HAS A ROLE TO PLAY REALLY AS A ROLE MODEL, BUT ALSO AS AN AMBASSADOR SHOULD BE THE YOUNGEST MEMBER OF THE COURT. SHE’LL BE.. A TEACHER ON THE COURT. AND SHE WILL BE ABLE TO HELP US ENSURE THAT PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THE RIGHTFUL ROLE OF THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT TO PROTECTED IN HERE TO THE CONSTITUTION, NOT TO LEGISLATE., BUT TO ALLOW THE LEGISLATIVE BRANCH TO DO ITS WORK AND INTERPRET THOSE Laws AND THE CONSTITUTION FAITHFULLY. YOU HAVE. THEY’RE, NOW EXPERIMENTING FIRM, NEARLY RIGHT FROM SOME DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES ORDER SENATE EIGHT MAN, ATHLETE. WELL, OF COURSE, FIVE EVERY DAY TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HOLD THE MAJORITY IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE. TO ME. That IS THE KEY TO THIS, BUT I ABSOLUTELY BELIEVE THAT THE DEMOCRATS WILL, IF THEY TAKE THE WHITE HOUSE, THE HOUSE IN THE SENATE. CHANGE THE RULES DRAMATICALLY CHANGE THE COUNTRY DRAMATICALLY. BY EXPANDING THE SIZE OF THE SUPREME COURT, GOING FROM NINE TO ELEVEN OR THIRTEEN.. And THIS IS ONE OF THE LIST, A HORRIBLE, THAT I THINK THEY WOULD. THEY WOULD PUT INTO PLACE. THE THEIR NUMBER OF. CANDIDATES WHO ARE RUNNING AS DEMOCRATS AND A NUMBER OF DEMOCRATS. WHO ARE HERE RIGHT, NOW., WHO HAVE SAID THEY WERE OPEN TO THIS.

, WANT TO Do IT EVEN THE SENATOR WHO LED THE CHARGE BY SIGNING A LETTER SAYING WE WOULD NEVER GET RID OF THE FILIBUSTER. INSTEAD, OF COURSE, HAVE TO DO TO EXPAND THE SIZE OF THE SUPREME COURT. IS NOW OPEN TO THE NOMINEE FOR VICE PRESIDENT., WHICH WAS ABSOLUTELY. CONSIDERING So THIS IS TO ME A REAL THREAT IF THEY WEREN’T GOING TO DO IT. FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NOMINEE, JOE BIDEN WOULD HAVE PUT AN END TO THIS EARLY ON BY SAYING NO WE’RE NOT GOING TO DO THAT., BUT BY CONTINUING TO REFUSE TO ANSWER THE Question., EVEN ONE PUT TO HIM BY GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS IN WELL TELL YOU LATER BEFORE WE BEFORE PEOPLE BEFORE ELECTION DAY., WE ALREADY HAVE OVER SIXTY MILLION PEOPLE THAT VOTED IN THIS COUNTRY.. So HE HAS NOT BEEN FORTHCOMING AND I BELIEVE THAT THE THREAT IS REAL AND, I BELIEVE IS WHAT THEY INTEND TO DO IF THEY WERE ABLE TO WIN ALL THREE OFFICES, WHICH IS WHY WE’RE FIGHTING SO HARD. TO NOT ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN. You KNOW. GRETCHEN ON. IN THE PROCESS THAT IT DEFINITELY LOOKING FOR HER. RIGHT YOU HAVING DEMOCRATIC. AND ANYTIME MOVE., I’M YEAH., BUT NO AT ALL VACANCY OCCURRED.. It OCCURRED AT A TIME WHEN WE HAD BOTH WERE IN THE IN THE SENATE AND REPUBLICAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND HISTORICALLY, WHEN EITHER PARTY HAS BOTH OF THOSE SIDES THE NOMINATING SIDE IN THE CONFIRMING SIDE THROUGH THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES.

Whenever THAT HAPPENS, YOU GENERALLY GET. WITH THE UNIFIED GOVERNMENT, THE CONFIRMATION OCCURRING, WE HAVE DIVIDED GOVERNMENT. The NOMINATION DOES NOT MOVE FORWARD EVERY TIME. The PRESIDENT DOES NOT MEAN THEY SHOULD KNOW. This DID NOT. ENTER IN AT ALL, BUT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR A LONG TIME WHEN YOU TOOK A LOOK AT CHUCK SCHUMER OUTSIDE THE SUPREME COURT. YEAH, THE NAMES OF GORSUCH IN KAVANAUGH. AS SAYING YOU PERSONALLY WOULD PAY A PRICE IF THEY DIDN’T ROLL. The WAY THAT CHUCK SCHUMER SAID THEY HAD TO RULE. ME TO ME THAT WAS A STATEMENT THAT THEY WERE, WHAT THE PRICE THAT THEY WERE GOING TO PAY, THAT THE COUNTRY WAS GOING TO HAVE TO PAY. WAS IT THEY WOULD STACK. The COURT DID EXPAND THE NUMBERS OF THE COURT. IF THEY WERE EVER IN A POSITION WHERE THEY HAD ALL THREE OF BOTH JUDICIARY POST BOTH LEGISLATIVE BRANCHES AS WELL AS EXECUTIVES.. May I PLEASE GET A RESIGNING. REPUBLICANS WILL. YEAH DAYS AFTER WORKING OUT YEAH A ON AND WE’RE GOING THREE. OF THERE’S NO. OKAY YEAH YEAH RIGHT.. Well, FIFTY TWO REPUBLICANS JUST STOOD WHEN THEIR NAMES WERE CALLED. AND VOTED TO CONFIRM: AMY CONEY. BARRETT TO THE SUPREME COURT.. She IS DEFINITELY. BEYOND ANY SHOW OF A DOUBT. The MAJOR OF WERE, AND DEMOCRATS ALIKE, COMBINE BELIEVE SHE SHOULD BE ON THE SUPREME COURT AND I THINK, HAS NO BEARING ON WHAT THAT DEMOCRATS WOULD DO IF THEY HAVE. HOUSE, SENATE AND PRESIDENT., EVEN IF RUTH BETTER GINSBURG HAD NOT PASSED, WOULD SHE DID? I THINK THAT WAS THEIR INTENTION ALL THE WAY THROUGHOUT.

DEMOCRATIC YOU GAVE US YEAH. What HAVE YOU GOT A PROBLEM? We CAN HARM. WHAT THAT MEANS. NUMBER ONE. Is WE AN ALLY AND ELECTION DAY COME UP A DAYS FROM NOW WE’RE DOING EVERY WE CAN? Twenty PEOPLE WHO VOTED TODAY. ARE GOING HOME TONIGHT AND TOMORROW MORNING. TO COMPETE. TO RETURN TO THE UNITED STATES SENATE IN TO KEEP US IN THE MAJORITY AND AS A UNITED TEAM. We WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY CAN ALL RETURN. RIGHT RIGHT. Yeah. YEAH YEAH OKAY. CALLED ON THAT. IN ORDER. RIGHT NOW, THOSE FOLKS BACK IN LOUISIANA.
