Amy Coney Barrett’s surprise Supreme Court endorsement

The political left has already started demonizing President Trump’s choice of Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court after the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Barrett is a committed Roman Catholic and part of the church’s charismatic renewal. She was initially accused of belonging to a sect that was the basis for the Handmaid’s Tale. The story has since been retracted. READ: Nolte: Newsweek Retracts ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Smear of Amy Coney Barrett

But Harvard Law School professor Noah Feldman shocked many when he publicly stated that Barrett is eminently qualified to fill the Supreme Court position.

The Blaze explains:

Harvard Law School professor Noah Feldman is a constitutional scholar and self-described liberal who testified during President Donald Trump’s impeachment hearings that Trump was guilty of “impeachable high crimes and misdemeanors by corruptly abusing the office of the presidency.” […]

Writing in an essay for Bloomberg, Feldman said he was “devastated” by Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death and “revolted by the hypocrisy of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.”

But, Feldman explained, his personal missives do not remove the fact that Barrett is “highly qualified” to serve on the Supreme Court.

“Yet these political judgments need to be distinguished from a separate question: what to think about Judge Amy Coney Barrett,” Feldman wrote. “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.”

Feldman added:

“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 explained.
