Harvard University Left-wing professor Noah Feldman penned an OP-ED for Bloomberg saying that Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court Amy Coney Barrett “Deserves To Be On The Supreme Court”.
Yet these political judgments need to be distinguished from a separate question: what to think about Judge Amy Coney Barrett, whom Trump has told associates he plans to nominate. And here I want to be extremely clear. Regardless of what you or I may think of the circumstances of this nomination, Barrett is highly qualified to serve on the Supreme Court.
I disagree with much of her judicial philosophy and expect to disagree with many, maybe even most of her future votes and opinions. Yet despite this disagreement, I know her to be a brilliant and conscientious lawyer who will analyze and decide cases in good faith, applying the jurisprudential principles to which she is committed. Those are the basic criteria for being a good justice. Barrett meets and exceeds them.
He also praised her as a person:
To add to her merits, Barrett is a sincere, lovely person. I never heard her utter a word that wasn’t thoughtful and kind — including in the heat of real disagreement about important subjects. She will be an ideal colleague. I don’t really believe in “judicial temperament,” because some of the greatest justices were irascible, difficult and mercurial. But if you do believe in an ideal judicial temperament of calm and decorum, rest assured that Barrett has it.
This won’t matter to the Democrat party. They are going to try and destroy her no matter what.
Nomination hearings to put President Trump’s nominee Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court will take place on October 12th according to reports.

Senate Republicans are developing plans to begin confirmation hearings around Oct. 12 for President Donald Trump’s pick to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, setting up a bitter partisan fight over the nomination before the November election.
The plan could lead to a final vote by the full Senate by the week of Oct. 26, according to people familiar with the process. But Democrats, who say Ginsburg’s seat should be determined by the winner of the November presidential election, could use procedural maneuvers to delay the process.
