Tom Cotton says “no doubt” COVID-19 infections won’t stop confirmation hearings of Barrett

Appearing on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) argued that 3 Republican Senators contracting COVID-19 won’t stop the confirmation hearings of Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

Cotton said “What I can say is that everyone is eager to be at work when they need to be at work, they’re on the Judiciary Committee a week from tomorrow either in person or virtually to have the confirmation hearings for Judge Barrett, and then to have the vote on Judge Barrett this month.”

He continued “none of this should have any impact on schedule of the Senate, either on the Judiciary Committee or the Senate as a whole,” adding “No doubt about it, Maria.”
