Cornyn Statement on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson
I issued the statement below following reports that President Biden will nominate U.S. Circuit Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for the upcoming vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court:
I’m looking forward to meeting with Judge Jackson and conducting a thorough review of her background and record in the coming weeks.
The Senate will perform its constitutional duty of providing advice and consent as it has always done for nominees to our nation’s highest court. Ultimately I will be looking to see whether Judge Jackson will uphold the rule of law and call balls and strikes, or if she will legislate from the bench in pursuit of a specific agenda.
No matter what, Judge Jackson will be given the dignity and respect she deserves. The American people will see a starkly different process from the treatment of Justice Kavanaugh and other judicial nominees during the previous Administration.
