Statement on the Nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement on the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court:

President Biden has bowed to pressure from his radical base and has selected a judicial activist to fill Justice Stephen Breyer’s seat on the Supreme Court. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson has a long record of left-wing activism both on and off the bench.

Disturbingly, President Biden seems to have selected Judge Jackson under a process that excluded potential nominees simply because of their race and sex. The Senate must not only investigate Biden’s invidious discrimination but must also be prepared to reject Judge Jackson or any other nominee who wants to further politicize the Supreme Court by legislating from the bench.
