(AbsoluteNews.com) – Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson went before the Senate this week for her confirmation hearings. Senators grilled her for hours on March 22 and 23, questioning her judicial record and her position on a number of issues. The questioning got heated at some points and has left the Senate divided.
Democrats have been accusing Republicans of asking the SCOTUS nominee irrelevant questions. Their outrage seems disingenuous, considering the way Democrats treated former President Donald Trump’s nominees. During the confirmation hearing on March 23, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) asked Jackson if she had watched Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s hearings in 2018. She said she hadn’t and didn’t answer him when he asked if she thought his treatment was fair.
Sen. Lindsey Graham: "Did you watch the Kavanaugh hearings? […] He was ambushed. How would you feel if we did that to you?"

Prior to the confirmation, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) told Newsmax Republicans wouldn’t attack Jackson the way Democrats attacked Kavanaugh.

During the 2018 Kavanaugh hearings, Democrats berated the conservative judge. They repeatedly accused him of sexual assault, allegations that were never substantiated. They treated him as a monster, and four years later, they can’t handle it when their nominee is questioned about her record, or how she feels about previous candidates in her position and how they were treated? The hypocrisy is real.
