Ketanji Brown Jackson faces senators’ questions


WASHINGTON–Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Senate confirmation hearings are about to get a lot more interesting Tuesday, as senators prepare to pepper her with questions about how she would approach a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court.

Jackson, to judge on the US Circuit Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, sat quietly throughout much of the proceeding Monday as senators delivered opening statements. Those statements offered some clues about the questions Jackson is likely to receive today.

Republicans indicated they will press Jackson on the sentences she has handed down in a number of criminal cases she handled when she was a US District Court judge for nearly a decade. They’ll also nudge her to offer more insight into how she interprets the Constitution in cases where the document isn’t explicit.
