As Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett prepares for Senate hearings next week, many are wondering whether she’ll again face harsh questions about her Catholic faith.


Mary Vought, executive director of the Senate Conservatives Fund and wife of Russ Vought, director of the Office of Management and Budget, joins us to explain why this line of questioning is unconstitutional. Her husband, she recalls, faced similar scrutiny in his own Senate confirmation hearing.
