Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee of the United States Congress and a veteran Republican, called the Democratic decision to boycott the vote "their own choice."
He said: "I think this is a kind of damage to Judge Barrett."

If Barrett is elected, it will strengthen the conservative power of the U.S. Supreme Court, giving the conservatives an advantage of six over three judges.
As Trump’s Republican Party holds a majority in the Senate, Barrett’s nomination is expected to be confirmed.
The Associated Press stated that boycotting the Judiciary Committee hearing on the 22nd could not stop the process, but may force Republicans on the committee to modify the rules to ensure that the confirmation work goes smoothly.
It is understood that Barrett, 48, is considered a conservative judge.
She has publicly opposed "Obamacare", abortion, etc., and is conservative on issues such as immigration and gun control.
U.S. President Trump said that he hopes the justices will take office in time to deal with any disputes that may arise after the November 3 general election.
