Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has officially responded.
McConnell’s opinion will likely decide how much opposition Judge Jackson gets.
“I congratulate Judge Jackson on her nomination. I look forward to meeting with her in person and studying her record, legal views, and judicial philosophy.
“Senate Republicans believe the Court and the country deserve better than Senate Democratsâ€™ routine of baseless smears and shameless distortions. The Senate must conduct a rigorous, exhaustive review of Judge Jacksonâ€™s nomination as befits a lifetime appointment to our highest Court. This is especially crucial as American families face major crises that connect directly to our legal system, such as skyrocketing violent crime and open borders.
“I voted against confirming Judge Jackson to her current position less than a year ago. Since then, I understand that she has published a total of two opinions, both in the last few weeks, and that one of her prior rulings was just reversed by a unanimous panel of her present colleagues on the D.C. Circuit. I also understand Judge Jackson was the favored choice of far-left dark-money groups that have spent years attacking the legitimacy and structure of the Court itself.
“With that said, I look forward to carefully reviewing Judge Jacksonâ€™s nomination during the vigorous and thorough Senate process that the American people deserve.”
