US President Donald Trump’s pick for a Supreme Court vacancy will later tell senators that she will judge legal cases impartially “whatever my own preferences might be”. The BBC reports that conservative jurist Amy Coney Barrett faces a four-day confirmation hearing in the Senate that starts on Monday, and if approved, 48-year-old Judge Barrett, will replace liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died recently aged 87. Should Judge Barrett’s nomination be confirmed, conservative-leaning justices will hold a 6-3 majority on the Supreme Court, shifting its ideological balance for potentially decades to come.
