Lindsey Graham Doubles Down On Judge Jackson

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson

( – Following his headline-grabbing questioning of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, United States Senate Judiciary Committee member U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) went on to Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle” to assert that claims Jackson wasn’t an activist were absurd.

In his appearance on “The Ingraham Angle,” Graham pointed to Jackson getting a bevy of support from activist liberal groups who lobbied for President Joe Biden to choose her as his nomination candidate.

He clarified what he had said in the hearing earlier, saying, “The point I’m trying to make is Judge Jackson said basically, ‘I call it as I see it, I don’t make up the law. I apply the facts and the law. I’m not an activist.’ Well, why do Demand Justice and every other nutjob liberal group want her more than anybody else?”

He then also pointed to her time as a lawyer, saying the idea that Jackson is a “neutral observer of the law, not an activist, is not passing the smell test.”

He then mentioned how, when Jackson was a public defender, she “participated in three [amicus] briefs by liberal organizations that accused the Bush administration of being war criminals” and queried why she wouldn’t remember making that accusation against the President of the United States.

He also defended his initial line of questioning that had to do with faith, contrasting the uproar his questions received as opposed to similar questioning by fellow committee member Diane Feinstein of California, who had implied Judge Amy Coney Barrett could not decide fairly because of her strong Catholic faith.

“Well, if she was uncomfortable with that — where was she and others when they were destroying Amy Coney Barrett, who is a faithful woman, who is a traditional Catholic, whose faith means a lot to her?”
