As my wife has observed….
The Federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is holding her won in questioning from the US Senator’s during her confirmation hearing with the Senate Judicary Committee…
“I understand how significant, how damaging, how horrible this crime is,” Jackson said in response to a question from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) on sentencing in child pornography cases. Jackson told senators that public defenders do not get to pick their clients.
Jackson also told senators that she believes the two landmark decisions that made abortion legal in the United States are “settled law.” She fielded a wide array of queries from the first two Republican questioners. Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.) used part of his time to press Jackson on her views about policy matters affecting detainees at Guantánamo Bay and said he was troubled by support for her nomination by “left-wing radical groups.”
