Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy said Tuesday that Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris had essentially called Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett a liar.
Kennedy questioned Judge Barrett toward the end of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, pressing her several times on the meaning of the oath she would take before serving on the highest court in the nation. He then argued that Harris’ insistence that Barrett would violate that oath amounted to calling her a liar.
“Are you tired, Judge?” Kennedy began.
“I’m looking forward to the end of the hearing, I must admit,” Barrett conceded.
