Barrett Says She Isn't 'A Pawn' — But Won't Commit To Recuse From An Election Case : The NPR Politics Podcast Read All Of Our Coverage

Amy Coney Barrett didn't give direct answers to many questions, as expected. Like past nominees, she refused to deal in hypotheticals. But Democrats looked to her past writing and scholarship to make the case that she is hostile to abortion access and healthcare access. Republicans said she is qualified to serve.

This episode: White House correspondent Tamara Keith, congressional reporter Claudia Grisales, and national justice correspondent Carrie Johnson.
