While on a brief break during Thursday morning's hearings over Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., could be heard in a hot-mic moment discussing the Chicago judge's faith and personal views on abortion.

"She's been pro-life for a long time," said Feinstein, presumably referring to Barrett. "So I suspect with her, it is deeply personal and comes with her religion."

It was not immediately clear to whom the senator was speaking.

Feinstein, who was very complimentary this week of Barrett's family, made abortion a centerpiece in her questioning of the judge. The California legislator tried to get the nominee to say whether she'd vote in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark Supreme Court decision that granted nationwide legal cover to abortion.

Barrett told Feinstein she has no intention of joining the high court with an "agenda" and that her only goal is to "stick to the rule of law and decide cases as they come."
