(FOX NEWS) – At the top of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s meeting Thursday morning, Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., introduced and passed a motion setting a time and date for the committee to vote on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination.
Graham announced that the committee will hold a vote at 1 p.m. ET on Oct. 22, one week after the conclusion of the confirmation hearing.
Democrats objected, claiming that the process was being rushed to satisfy President Trump’s wishes, and raised doubts over whether they would even hear from a panel of witnesses who were prepared to give testimony on Thursday.
“We have a panel from the American Bar Association,” Graham said. “We have an eight-person panel, four for, four against, chosen by the minority and majority. I will do whatever my colleagues want in terms of motions of being heard. I hate it for the panel, but I will let you decide what we do today. We’re going to vote on the judge on October the 22nd.”
