(Video) Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell Says He Will Vote Against Ketanji Brown Jackson

As the fourth day of Ketanji Brown Jackson’s hearing for nomination to the Supreme Court wrapped, Mitch McConnell stated he would vote against President Biden’s nominee.

Taking the Senate floor, the Republican leader stated, “After studying the nominee’s record and watching her performance this week, I cannot and will not support D.C. Judge Jackson for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.”

He also added, “It’s a recipe for courts to wander into policy making and prevent healthy Democratic compromise. This is the misunderstanding of the separation of powers that I’ve spent my entire career fighting against.”

Pointing out her sentencing decisions and her judicial philosophy, McConnell continued to say, “I will vote against this nominee.”

This isn’t the first time McConnell voted against Jackson. According to The Hill, he voted against her last year “for her appeals court spot.”

As you may know, Judge Jackson was confirmed as Vice Chair of the U.S. Sentencing Commission in 2010. During Obama’s second term, he  also nominated Ketanji to be a district court judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. She was confirmed in 2012.

Democrats will move forward with Jackson’s nomination. The Judiciary Committee will vote on the 51-year-old’s nomination on April 4th.

If confirmed, Ketanji will be the first African-American woman to serve on the Supreme Court.
