Supreme Court confirmation hearings will take place this week or Biden nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson; Brown is Biden’s forest nomination to the nation’s highest court.
Jackson looks to have a solid chance of confirmation, but not everyone is behind her. Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) has been very vocal about her leniency with sentencing child sex offenders.
“The problem is I haven’t been able to find a single case where she has had a child porn offender, a pedophile in front of her, where she hasn’t given him the most lenient sentence she possibly could,” Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., recently told “Hannity.”
The White House have dismissed Hawley’s concerns, claiming they border on conspiracy theory.
“Judge Jackson is a proud mother of two whose nomination has been endorsed by leading law enforcement organizations, conservative judges, and survivors of crime,” White House spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to Fox News. “This is toxic and weakly-presented misinformation that relies on taking cherry-picked elements of her record out of context – and it buckles under the lightest scrutiny.”
Judge Jackson’s confirmation will take place Monday through Thursday.
