The Senate Judiciary holds its fourth and final day of confirmation hearings for President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Watch live and follow here for the latest updates.

During the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett so far, both Democrats and Republicans have looked to get a better understanding on how she would rule on the ACA.

Senate Judiciary Republicans have set a committee vote to approve Amy Coney Barrett and send her nomination to the floor for Oct. 22 at 1 p. m. ET.

Senators on the committee have spent the last two days questioning Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

Today is the fourth and final day of President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearings.

Democrats and Republicans both sought to get a better understanding about how Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett may rule on a challenge to the Affordable Care Act that the high court will hear next month, dancing around the key legal issues surrounding the case.

For the second day of Barrett's questioning in the Senate Judiciary Committee, the health care law was a dominant topic on both sides of the aisle thanks to the looming November case the Supreme Court will hear on a Republican effort to strike down the law -- not to mention Election Day less than three weeks away.

Both Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the panel's top Democrat, asked President Trump's Supreme Court nominee about the legal doctrine of "severability," or whether the entire law can stand if one part of it is deemed unconstitutional, during Barrett's second day of questions before the committee on Wednesday.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced a set of outside witnesses who will appear before the committee today, the fourth and final day of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearing.

Witnesses are expected to offer competing arguments over the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court during the Senate Judiciary Committee's final hearing Thursday, as Republicans continue to drive the process forward.
