Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court hearings lacked the drama that Brett Kavanaugh’s proceedings had.
“It was eerily smooth,” said Mike Davis, a former clerk for Justice Neil Gorsuch who worked as the top counsel for nominations on the Senate Judiciary Committee during Kavanaugh’s nomination.
“Frankly, I’m surprised that the Democrats aren’t being more aggressive,” he added. “It went from unhinged during Kavanaugh to like whipped puppies this time.”
But as the hearings ended Thursday, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the panel, thanked Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., for his “fairness” during the hearings and praised the process.
