Joe Biden and the Democrats thought they could hide the smoking gun.
They thought wrong.
And Republicans just discovered something terrible about Joe Biden’s Supreme Court pick.
Now that the confirmation hearings are over, Joe Biden and his team finally let the truth out about how Ketanji Brown Jackson is soft on pedophiles and child predators.
The White House withheld documentation of the case of U.S. v. Cane from Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans until after Jackson’s hearings concluded.
In this case, Judge Jackson ignored a probation officer’s request of 84 months in prison for a child pornographer possessing 6,500 images and videos of young children engaging in sexual acts.
Instead, Judge Jackson handed down the mandatory minimum sentence of 60 months.
Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley slammed the administration for engaging in a cover-up.
“When we first highlighted her record on child porn cases, the White House leaked information to their friends in the media and Democrats on the Judiciary Committee,” Senator Hawley declared.
Hawley suggested the White House hid the information about Judge Jackson’s role in the case to avoid Americans realizing the truth about Judge Jackson’s soft stance on child predators.
“They hid it from the public despite knowing Judge Jackson gives lenient sentences to criminals. The White House is still refusing to be transparent about Judge Jackson’s record,” Senator Hawley continued.
A Republican Senate Judiciary Committee aide told Fox News the omission was a deliberate act on the part of the White House.
“Clearly, the White House either didn’t thoroughly vet the nominee, or were aware of the record and … intentionally left it out in hopes that the nominee would be confirmed before the full record could be uncovered and reviewed,” the aide told Fox News.
The aide speculated the White House hid these documents because they undercut Jackson’s false claim that she only handed down lenient sentences at the recommendation of the probation officer.
“Not only does this case, which Judge Jackson left off her list of child abuse cases, undercut her argument that she followed the probation office’s recommended sentences, but it also underscores the perils of moving too quickly in the vetting process,” the aide added.
“The transcripts—the only public material to address sentencing in this case—confirm that the probation office recommended a longer sentence than the minimum term imposed by Judge Jackson,” the aide also told Fox News. “They also reveal the government’s arguments for enhancing the penalty, which suggests interest in a sentence longer than the term Judge Jackson handed out.”
The aide concluded by explaining the subterfuge involved on the part of the White House in order to push this nomination through.
“The White House is pointing to a sealed document to support their unverified claim about a case that was mysteriously excluded from information they provided to Democrats, but not Republicans ahead of Judge Jackson’s hearing. It’s clear from the sentencing transcript that the probation office, which Judge Jackson repeatedly referenced to justify her sentences, wanted a longer sentence in this case,” the aide continued. “Moreover, Judge Jackson even pointed to a case … where she imposed the shortest possible sentence despite the prosecutor’s higher recommendation, to justify her sentence in this case.”
