Barrett says she will serve "independently" from political branches and her own preferences


In remarks following her swearing-in ceremony, Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett focused on telling Americans that she will do her job on the court “independently” from political branches, as well as her own preferences.

“My fellow Americans — even though we judges don’t face elections. We still work for you. It is your Constitution that establishes the rule of law and the judicial independence that is so central to it. The oath that I have solemnly taken tonight means at its core that I will do my job without any fear or favor and that I will do so independently of both the political branches and of my own preferences,” Barrett said in remarks from the South Lawn of the White House.

Barrett began remarks thanking President Trump, the Senate and White House aides, calling the process “rigorous."

“It’s a privilege to be asked to serve my country in this office and I stand here tonight truly honored and humbled,” Barrett said.

Barrett also spoke about the confirmation process itself, saying it “made ever clear to me one of the fundamental differences between the federal judiciary and the United States Senate. And perhaps the most acute is the role of policy preferences.”

“It is the job of a senator to pursue her policy preferences. In fact, it would be a dereliction of duty to put policy goals aside. By contrast, it is the job of a judge to resist her policy preferences. It would be a dereliction of duty for her to give into them," she said.

“The Judicial Oath captures the essence of the judicial duty — the rule of law must always control,” Barrett said.
