Even Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer have spoken out against packing the Supreme Court. But Joe Biden’s first nominee to the court, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, when asked, would not condemn the idea. Fox News’ Cameron Cawthorne reports:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Sunday said that President Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson will be treated “much better” than Democrats treated Republican nominees, but said she will have to answer “tough questions” about her record.
During an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” McConnell acknowledged that he had a “very good conversation” in his office with her, but said it was problematic that she could not answer a question that he believed would have been an “easy thing” to respond to.
“I asked her to defend the court. Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Justice Breyer both publicly opposed court-packing, that is trying to increase the number of court members in order to get an outcome you like,” McConnell said. “That would have been an easy thing for her to do to defend the integrity of the court. She wouldn’t do that.”
