Barrett says she knew ‘faith would be caricatured,’ ‘family would be attacked’ if nominated to Supreme Court

Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett said on Tuesday that she expected attacks against her faith and her family when she was nominated to the Supreme Court, but that she and her family are "all in" on serving her country as the Senate Judiciary Committee began grilling Barrett as her marathon hearing continued.

"I've tried to be on a media blackout for the sake of my mental health," Barrett told the committee. "You can't keep yourself walled off from everything and I'm aware of a lot of the caricatures that are floating around."

She added: "We knew that our lives would be combed over for any negative detail. We knew that our faith would be caricatured. We knew our family would be attacked. And so we had to decide whether those difficulties would be worth it because what sane person would go through that if there wasn't a benefit on the other side?"
