Among this week’s major news stories: President Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy in the wake of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death. Barrett is known for her religion and for her conservatism; her clerkship with the late justice Antonin Scalia has led many commentators to describe her as his “heir” on the Court.
