For Immediate Release: October 27, 2020

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04) released the following statement in regard to Justice Amy Coney Barrett becoming a member of the United States Supreme Court.

“I don’t think there is any doubt that Amy Coney Barrett will make a great addition to the Supreme Court. Her confirmation is a win for all the American people no matter their political views, as I think she will interpret the law as it is written as opposed to what she thinks it should be. She does not see the Supreme Court as a mini legislature, but sees it as it was intended, to strictly interpret the letter of the law.

“I also believe that President Trump’s most lasting legacy as President will be the number of vacancies he has filled throughout the federal judiciary. This legacy of conservative appointments will last for decades to come.”
