U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, the Democratic nominee for vice president, used Judge Amy Comey Barrett's words and deeds against her in Supreme Court confirmation hearing Tuesday evening.

Harris, a former attorney general, prosecuted Judge Barrett for her statements on abortion, then lambasted Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"I would suggest that we not pretend that we don't know how this nominee views a woman's right to choose," Harris concluded.


Senator Harris also "hurt" Judge Barrett, former Senator Claire McCaskill noted on MSNBC, when she drove a truck through Barrett's suggestion that she doesn't know President Trump chose her to kill ObamaCare.


Later, former Senator Al Franken noted that Barrett has the seal of approval from the Federalist Society, which means she's passed all the religious right's and Republicans' tests.
