President Donald Trump on Saturday announced Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, calling her “one of the nation’s most brilliant and gifted legal minds.”
“She is a woman of unparalleled achievement, towering intellect, sterling credentials, and unyielding loyalty to the Constitution,” the President said in introducing his nominee.
NRB CEO Troy Miller affirmed the President’s remarks, noting in particular that “her outstanding judicial record shows she will defend the rule of law and protect the God-given Constitutional rights of Americans.”
“Judge Barrett is extremely qualified and has a wealth of experience, notable accolades, and well-deserved praise – in both her professional life and personal life,” he said. “Based on her legal career and years on the federal bench, we trust that Judge Barrett will review issues of interest to our members – religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and free speech – with careful judgement. Judge Barrett is also a role model as a mother and person of deep faith.”
