Ketanji Brown Jackson Suffers Another Rejection

On March 25, Nebraska Republican Ben Sasse announced the news:

He will vote “no” on Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination.

The news is significant, because if a majority of Judiciary Committee members do not approve Jackson’s nomination, the vote may result in a tie between Republicans and Democrats.

This would mean that her nomination would be forwarded to the Senate floor, which is often “fatal,” according to Breitbart.

Sasse has said that he is opposing Ketanji “because of a lack of any judicial philosophy, which she should have made ‘clear and understandable’ for the committee.”

“Judge Jackson is an extraordinary person with an extraordinary American story. We both love this country, but we disagree on judicial philosophy and I am sadly unable to vote for this confirmation,” Sasse began.

“Judge Jackson has impeccable credentials and a deep knowledge of the law, but at every turn this week she not only refused to claim originalism as her judicial philosophy, she refused to claim any judicial philosophy at all.”

“Like so much of our public square, the Supreme Court confirmation process is broken and doesn’t build trust in either the Senate or the Supreme Court. Senators should have made fewer speeches, and Judge Jackson should have made her judicial philosophy clear and understandable to the American people,” Sasse concluded. “Unfortunately, neither of those things happened.”
