Biden Caves to the Left in Selecting Judge Jackson

February 25, 2022

The Committee for Justice released the following statement by its president, Curt Levey, on the nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court:

In nominating Judge Jackson to the Supreme Court, President Biden has caved to the left wing of his party, as he has done so often throughout his presidency and as he did when handling judicial nominees on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Biden has given in to the demands of groups on the far left, who made it clear they wanted Justice Breyer replaced by Judge Jackson, whose liberal judicial activism, resistance to President Trump, and charged rhetoric in opinions has made her a darling of progressives.
