Supreme Court Confirmation Hearing Turns Combative

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1775: Patrick Henry proclaims “Give me liberty or give me death” in speech in favor of Virginian troops joining US Revolutionary war.

The confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson turned combative, as the contender faced an increasingly pointed line of questioning from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

Graham began his line of questioning by asking Jackson: “What faith are you, by the way?”

Jackson said she’s a nondenominational protestant. Graham then asked if she could “fairly judge a Catholic.”

The Supreme Court hopeful said she wasn’t comfortable discussing her religious beliefs.

“How would you feel if a senator up here said of your faith ‘the dogma lives loudly within you and that’s of concern’?” Graham said, referencing what Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) told Amy Coney Barrett when she was nominated to a federal appeals court in 2017.

“You’re reluctant to talk about it because it’s uncomfortable. Just imagine what would happen if people on late-night television called you a f’ing nut speaking in tongues because you practice the Catholic faith in a way they couldn’t relate to,” Graham said.

Graham also asked Jackson about her knowledge of the progressive advocacy groups that urged President Joe Biden against picking Graham’s preferred Supreme Court nominee, South Carolina District Judge J. Michelle Childs.

“Did you know there are a lot of people on the left who were trying to destroy Michelle Childs? Did you notice that?” he asked.

Jackson said “it is troublesome that people are or were doing things” that potentially damaged the reputation of other candidates.

    They could get someone in there that loves our country and follows our laws, not their own

  2. J. Moore says:

    Letting a murderer out of prison and he commits another automatically disqualifies her. Child molesters cannot be cured, and she gives them the minimum sentence should disqualify her. I wonder what her stance would be if one of her daughters had been the victim of a pedophile? She with her rulings will harm the United States if she is confirmed.
    You dumb senators better read what she has written and the actions she has taken against criminals. May God protect the SCOTUS.

  3. Gail Wehling says:

    I have heard absolutely enough from this “woman” and do not wish to hear anymore. I certainly do not want her as a Supreme Court Justice and I do not feel she qualifies to be a Justice. Lindsay, I pray that you follow your heart and what you believe is right for our Country.
