Senate confirmation hearings for Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson began Monday morning.
Last Wednesday, Hawley posted a Twitter thread based on Jackson’s record as a federal judge and as a member of the U.S. Sentencing Commission that showed Jackson consistently sympathized with and sentenced child porn offenders to sentences well below those in the sentencing guidelines.
Hawley confronted Judge Jackson to her face during the hearing and ran through seven cases where she was lenient on pedophiles.
“It’s difficult…to argue that the sentencing guidelines are too harsh or outmoded, or that we should be somehow treating child porn offenders more leniently,” Hawley said.
