Today began the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearings on the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, even as millions of Americans are already voting for a new president who ought to make this appointment next year. As the hearings opened, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) delivered a thoroughgoing and passionate denunciation of the "sham" process and warned against the views espoused by Barrett – who will, she warned, do away with the Affordable Care Act and the protections it affords in the middle of a deadly pandemic.
If you listen to only one speech on the Barrett nomination – and its illegitimacy under the Republicans' own rules – then listen to Klobuchar.
