President Biden nominated U.S. Southern Mississippi District Court Judge Carlton W. Reeves to serve as the U.S. Sentencing Commission chair. If confirmed, he will be the commission's first Black chair.
Republicans tried their damnedest to upstage the Senate vote confirming Ketanji Brown Jackson and reinforced the disrespect they've repeatedly directed toward the person poised to become the first Black woman U.S. Supreme Court justice.
Senate Democrats were joined by Republican Sens. Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins in advancing Jackson's nomination.
It's one thing to disagree with and clarify points of contention with a given nominee. It Is entirely different to inject debunked claims and distortions into the confirmation process.
By attacking public defenders, Republican Senators at Ketanji Brown Jackson's confirmation hearing are attacking the guidance and supervision of the administrative oversight provided by the United States Courts.
