Senate to Begin Confirmation Hearings for Biden's SCOTUS Pick

The candidate is Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson

Chairman Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) said it was “a proud day for America” as the Senate Judiciary Committee began four days of hearings on the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, a historic choice by President Biden as he moves to fulfill his pledge to put the first Black woman on the Supreme Court in its 233-year history.

All 22 committee members are expected to give opening statements Monday. Then two people will introduce Jackson and the nominee will speak.

Durbin set the tone for Democrats, praising Jackson’s “record of excellence and integrity” and “dedication to the rule of the law.” Republicans said they would press Jackson on her judicial philosophy but also complained about how Democrats and liberal groups had treated the judicial nominees of President Donald Trump.
