Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., expressed concern on “Hannity” Thursday over President Biden’s pick for Supreme Court, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, for her previous sentencing decisions related to child predators.
“The problem is, I haven’t been able to find a single case where she has had a child porn offender, a pedophile in front of her, where she hasn’t given him the most lenient sentence she possibly could,” Hawley said.
“I think we just have a basic question to ask: Are we going to get a judge here who’s going to protect children or who’s going to protect child predators? It’s a simple question. It’s one I think that every parent in America would like answered. But it’s one that the White House doesn’t want to answer, and so far, Judge Jackson doesn’t want to answer it. Total radio silence from her,” Hawley said.
“If you look at her record, what you see is this is someone who has consistently let sex predators, child sex predators off the hook. For people who have been convicted of child porn offenses, she’s consistently given the lenient sentences slaps on the wrist,” he said.
“This is someone who has raised the question whether sex offender registries are unconstitutional, whether notifying parents when there’s a sex offender in the area is unconstitutional, she suggested all of that. I mean, this is very troubling … If you look at what she’s done as a judge on the bench when she had the chance to put away child predators over and over again.”
“When it comes to these child porn cases – these are pedophiles we’re talking about – she chose to give them the lightest sentence possible in case after case.”
