A U.S. senator has revealed on social media what has been described as a “disturbing” agenda on the part of Joe Biden’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, Ketanji Brown Jackson, who was picked by Biden because she met his qualifications of being black and female.

It was a commentary at Twitchy that called the pattern of decisions from Jackson “disturbing.”

Sen. Josh Hawley’s investigation, which he said has been hindered because the Sentencing Commission “has refused to turn over all Judge Jackson’s records,” reveals Jackson’s affinity for going easy on offenders.

The editorial explained, “Joe Biden has proven he can REALLY pick ’em with his crap administration and now his questionable SCOTUS nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. We suppose when he made color and sex his priority for the pick (sort of like what he did when picking VP), he limited the pool.

“Josh Hawley has been going through her judgments and noticed something very very alarming … Can you IMAGINE if this had been something Kavanaugh had done? Heck, they made up crap to try and keep him off the bench. A judge taking it easy on sex offenders, especially those preying on children?”

Hawley’s observations:

Jackson, according to USA, previously worked to make the system go easier on offenders while she was on the U.S. Sentencing Commission.

She, if on the Supreme Court, would be expected to push for leniency in sentencing requirements, the report said.

“She’s been thinking about these issues for her entire life and during an era that makes it so much richer and more salient for her than maybe for others,” Douglas Berman, a law professor at Ohio State University who specializes in criminal law, told USA Today.

‘That’s where her impact could end up being profound.”

The report said Jackson’s Harvard thesis was on how the criminal justice system pushes defendants toward plea bargains.

“One of Jackson’s uncles received a life sentence for a drug crime,” the report said.

It continued, “In part because of her history with the issue, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are seeking additional documents – including her emails – from her time on the commission.”

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley explained, “By her supporters’ own accounts, Judge Jackson’s service on the sentencing commission is an important part of her experience, so her records there must be part of a thorough review.”
