President Trump asked the Senate to confirm Barrett, a conservative federal appeals court judge, ahead of the November 3 election in which he seeks a second term.

Barrett, who is facing Senate questioning for the first time, has declined to say whether she will backtrack on any election-related cases that might reach court. She said she would follow standard ineligibility rules that give individual judges the final say. Barrett said that no one in the White House asked her to adhere to how she would be governed.

“It would be a gross violation of judicial independence for me to make any such commitment or for me to be asked about that case,” Barrett told the committee.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett also declined to say whether she would consider moving away from the upcoming Obamacare case, as Democrats have requested. “That’s not a question I can answer in the abstract,” Barrett said.
