Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer calls on President Donald Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett, to recuse herself from the Affordable Care Act case, and any cases that may come from a disputed election.

  • An Obamacare case will be heard by the Supreme Court on Nov. 10, one week after the presidential election, says Schumer at a press conference in New York City on Sunday
  • Barrett’s Senate confirmation hearings start on Monday and Democrats have conceded there’s little or nothing they can do to keep her off the court; Republicans have vowed to confirm Barrett before the election
