Ketanji Brown Jackson hearings: Cornyn pushes back on Durbin's fact-checking of GOP comments

Date:


  • Senate Judiciary Chairman Dick Durbin says Tuesday’s questions had Republicans playing politics.
  • Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, pushes back on Durbin’s fact-checking of GOP comments.
  • Sen. Mitt Romney isn’t buying criticism of Jackson: ‘No there, there.’

WASHINGTON – Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson faces another day of questions from members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, as hearings continue over her historic nomination to be the first Black woman on the Supreme Court. 

Senators asked the judge about a wide range of topics Tuesday, including about her judicial philosophy, her faith, her work as a former federal public defender and sentences she handed down as a District Court judge in Washington. 

Many of the same themes are likely to emerge again Wednesday as the same 22 members of the committee get a second – slightly shorter – round of questions. Democrats are planning to finish the hearings on Thursday and hope to move Jackson to a final confirmation vote by early April.
