The White House is preparing for a fierce battle with Democrats on the road to confirming Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. In response, The White House has formed a highly specialized communications team designed to defend the nominee. According to senior White House officials, the team is divided into two camps: one focused on guiding Barrett through the confirmation process and the other focused on communications. These “knife fighters” have extensive experience and include White House Counsel Pat Cipollone and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Each has personal experience in the confirmation process from working with confirming Supreme Court Justices in the past and will play “integral roles” on Capitol Hill to ensure Barrett has the 51 votes she will need.

The White House is preparing for the attacks that will target Barrett and likely her family from Democrats hell-bent on rejecting her confirmation. While the process will be intense and arduous Barrett has the full weight of the White House behind her ready to help defend against any and all attacks from the Left.

According to Fox News:

Senior officials argued the team is “uniquely equipped” for the mission: The White House communications team will consist of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who is a graduate of Harvard Law School and will take on the role of “lead spokesperson.” Deputy Press Secretary Brian Morgenstern, a graduate of Columbia Law School, and White House communications officials Alyssa Farah and Ben Williamson, who are veterans of Capitol Hill and who have unique relationships with Republican leadership in both chambers of Congress, are also on the team.

“We will need to be knife fighters with the opposition, and will be prepared to marshal information quickly, and disseminate it to push back on any false narratives or attacks on her and her family, because we anticipate, unfortunately, that Democrats will go there,” a senior official told Fox News.

“So we’re mounting an offensive strategy on her behalf because she is such an incredible and inspiring nominee,” the official continued. “We’ll be defending her fiercely every day.”

Another official told Fox News that the communications team intends to be “very well-synced” with Senate communicators, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office, the Senate Republican conference and the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Republicans appear to have the votes to move forward and confirm Barrett to the Supreme Court with the process beginning on Oct. 12. However, Democrats are expected to attempt to try and slow the process as much as possible to avoid her confirmation before the election.

  1. Excuse me, but is this a good time to talk about Donald’s tax returns, ya know, the one’s where he deducted $70,000.00 for his hair-do and paid no federal taxes for years and years, or should we wait a bit for that?

      1. Really? Then why is everyone talking about his tax returns?

        Ya know how your idol could “own the libs”

        He could release is “non-fake” tax returns today.

        Do you think he is man enough to do it, or are the “fake” tax returns the real deal?

        1. Again,,,the President has answered that question…Move on dude…Plus stick with the story that’s written,,,not what u want it to b…

        2. Trump would be in jail if he turned in fake returns but how would you know you probably have never paid income tax before like the rest of us have and don’t have a clue how the system works.

    1. No crime in following the tax code. You don’t like it? Tell it to your rep. Where were you when Michelle took an entourage to Africa for a month on your dime? That’s much worse.

    2. Excuse me, but if President Trump’s taxes are in error, the IRS will handle it.When are you people going to learn his taxes are none of your business. or mine. Most of you haters wouldn’t even know what you were looking at if you had them. Get a life.


    1. Wishful thinking, but can’t be done. However, the next best thing would be to carve out a separate country for them to reign in their Utopian kingdom. The rest of us could then concentrate on the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness that our founders secured for us before Karl Marx’s ideas infiltrated our universities, Hollywood, and the MSM.

  3. Sad that such measures are necessary to get an eminently qualified nominee onto the court. That said, you’d think the democrats woulda learned by know that Kayleigh McEnany is not someone to mess around with.

  4. Go for the Head Snake George Soros … the take down his puppet Obama and all the rest of the Minions ! HANG THEM ALL AS TERRORISTS !

  5. ACB will be confirmed, and the dummycraps can’t do a dam thing about it,but whine and cry,melt down, she will be a star on the SC, just like RBG, except a great conservative, that will follow the constitution,law of the land, and not make laws up like the radical,liberals, have done for the last 60 yrs, the new change has arrived, and we love it.

    1. The only ‘goons’ during the election process are Dems. You can take your liberal brain and shove it up your a$$!

  6. Glad they’re planning ahead this time; Gorsuch’s hearings were nasty; Kavanaugh’s were brutal; these coming will be “no holds barred”!

  7. too bad it isn’t a real knife fight! The blood of thrants would be spilled! That would be one waty to rid the fovernment of those morons!

  8. Find faults or other lies, and hypocrisy from Democrats who will attack her. In other words get as much information from the democrats who are going after her and use it against them. What kind of credentials do they have to even question her?
