US Senate committee convenes to discuss Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination
On Monday, members of the US Senate Judiciary Committee meet to discuss Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to the US Supreme Court. Per Politico, a full day of debate over the nominee is expected. This meeting comes after the committee’s four-day hearings that touched on Jackson’s career and education, judicial approach, potential recusals if she is confirmed, family life and more. The committee will then hold a vote on her nomination and send its recommendation to the full Senate for consideration, according to the Congressional Research Service. Senate rules allow Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to file a motion to discharge and move Jackson’s nomination for consideration before the full Senate in the event of a deadlocked committee recommendation.
