Joe Biden nominated Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court knowing full well that Jackson would serve as a rubber stamp for the radical Left.
But Jackson’s confirmation hearings did not go as expected.
And Trey Gowdy exposed one truth that terrifies Ketanji Brown Jackson.
Former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy slammed the current state of Supreme Court confirmation hearings.
These hearings are now a joke where nominees refuse to discuss issues or their views because of the conduct of Democrats.
Gowdy noted that Democrats launched character assassination attacks on President Trump’s last two Supreme Court nominees – Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett – smearing them as a drunk rapist and an oddball religious fanatic respectively.
“The Senate Judiciary Committee held a confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. But the memories of the Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett hearings linger. It has been 17 years since a Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee voted for a Republican nominee for the Supreme Court. And other than Senator Lindsey Graham, it’s been that long since a Republican on the committee voted for a Democrat for the High Court,” Gowdy began.
Gowdy told viewers that Supreme Court confirmation hearings are now party line votes and questioned what the purpose of these hearings is.
“So what is the purpose of the hearings if it is a straight party-line vote regardless? Are these hearings educational? Helpful? Constructive? Is this what advice and consent was meant to be?” Gowdy wondered.
Beginning with Robert Bork, Democrats began launching disgusting smear campaigns against every Republican nominee.
The late Ted Kennedy lied about Bork, claiming Bork would reimpose Jim Crow and kill women in back-alley abortions.
Bork’s eventual defeat led to nominees falling back on a standard line of refusing to divulge any information about how they viewed the issues of the day by claiming they could not comment on matters that might appear before the Supreme Court.
Ketanji Brown Jackson’s hearings reached the height of absurdity.
In her hearings, Jackson refused to say she could define what a woman was because she wasn’t a biologist and played dumb in pretending she did not really know what Critical Race Theory was or that it was taught at the woke private school on whose board she sits.
Jackson delivered these absurd answers because Jackson knows the only way she can blow her confirmation is by offending Democrats.
So Jackson steered clear of any answer that might run afoul of left-wing orthodoxy that might cause tumult on the Left.
