Mitt Romney has exposed just how far he’ll go to help Biden’s left-wing agenda.
There’s no justification he can give for his awful actions.
Mitt Romney backstabbed Republicans with a piece of unbelievable aid for Joe Biden.
For his whole career Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham has approved every Supreme Court nominee that came for a vote but Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is different than any previous nominee.
Graham won’t vote for her but he believes that Jackson is an “activist to the core” who will find the outcome she wants regardless of the Constitution.
While Graham is not the most stalwart of conservatives he at least has enough sense to see the danger of putting a radical leftist on the Supreme Court.
The same cannot be said for Sen. Mitt Romney, who thinks that a judge, who doesn’t know what a woman is, is qualified to sit on America’s highest court.
Jackson has also faced criticism because in the eight child-porn cases that came before her court, the former D.C. District Court judge disregarded prison recommendations to give the lightest possible punishments every single time.
Jackson has claimed that federal sentencing guidelines for child porn are “outdated” and “too severe.”
There’s no political advantage for Romney to vote for Jackson as she comes from a solidly red state; it’s a matter of principle for him to help Democrats.
“After reviewing Judge Jackson’s record and testimony, I have concluded that she is a well-qualified jurist and a person of honor,” Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said in a statement on Monday evening. “While I do not expect to agree with every decision she may make on the Court, I believe that she more than meets the standard of excellence and integrity. I congratulate Judge Jackson on her expected confirmation and look forward to her continued service to our nation.”
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) announced hours before Romney that she would also vote to confirm Jackson, saying that her support for Jackson “rests on Judge Jackson’s qualifications, which no one questions; her demonstrated judicial independence; her demeanor and temperament; and the important perspective she would bring to the court as a replacement for Justice Breyer.
“She clerked for Justice Breyer before working in the private sector and as a federal public defender, and then serving as Vice Chair of the U.S. Sentencing Commission, a district court judge, and now an appeals court judge. She will bring to the Supreme Court a range of experience from the courtroom that few can match given her background in litigation,” Murkowski continued. “It also rests on my rejection of the corrosive politicization of the review process for Supreme Court nominees, which, on both sides of the aisle, is growing worse and more detached from reality by the year. While I have not and will not agree with all of Judge Jackson’s decisions and opinions, her approach to cases is carefully considered and is generally well-reasoned. She answered satisfactorily to my questions about matters like the Chevron doctrine, the Second Amendment, landmark Alaska laws, and Alaska Native issues. The support she has received from law enforcement agencies around the country is significant and demonstrates the judge is one who brings balance to her decisions.”
Romney and Murkowski are joined by Susan Collins (R-ME) who announced last week that she would vote to confirm Jackson.
