Questions Emerge as Ketanji Brown Jackson Nominated to SCOTUS

On Friday, President Joe Biden officially announced the nomination of D.C. Circuit Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Brown Jackson has long been seen as the frontrunner to replace Justice Stephen Breyer on the Court.

Republicans have shown that they will treat Judge Brown Jackson with the utmost respect compared to the way Democrats have done with recent judicial nominations made by Republican Presidents.

Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Chuck Grassley stated:

“As I always have, I’ll make my determination based on the experience, qualifications, temperament and judicial philosophy of the nominee. I look forward to meeting with Judge Jackson face to face on Capitol Hill in the coming days, and working with Senator Durbin to finalize the committee’s initial questionnaire and records request, as is customary in this process.

“As ranking member, I have no intention of degrading the advice and consent role as Senate Democrats have in recent confirmations. I intend to show up and do the job that Iowans pay me to do.”

Questions are already emerging about Brown Jackson's record as a jurist. Most prominently, her U.S. District Court opinions have a history of being overturned.

Another concern involves Judge Brown Jackson's support by leftist "dark money" interests.

Demand Justice has been pressuring Justice Breyer to retire since the beginning of President Biden's term.
