It’s day two of confirmation hearings in the U.S for Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump’s third Supreme Court appointment. Jessica Anderson, executive director of Heritage Action for America, joins Christiane Amanpour to makes the conservative case for the nominee. Senior editor at Slate Dahlia Lithwick explains why she thinks Amy Coney Barrett could find herself "bound by the promises" President Trump and conservatives made on Roe v Wade. Then, Dave Eggers speaks to Amanpour about his novella, “The Captain and the Glory” and his take on the U.S election. Michel Martin talks to Pulitzer prize-winning poet and domestic abuse survivor Natasha Trethewey about her new book, “Memorial Drive: A Daughter’s Memoir.”
