The 86-year-old was forced to sit out on multiple Supreme Court cases in January, while she was being treated for cancer.

Barrett was among the names being considered to replace former Justice Anthony Kennedy after he resigned from the Supreme Court in 2018.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh was then chosen over Barrett and confirmed to the bench in October.
