March 29, 2022

WASHINGTON—United States Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) released the following statement after his meeting with U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson:

“Today, I personally congratulated Judge Jackson on her nomination, and I appreciated hearing firsthand about her experience and views on the law and the role of a judge. Judge Jackson and I had a frank conversation about her judicial philosophy, constitutional interpretation, and court packing. I shared with the Judge that some of her responses during last week’s hearing produced more questions than answers about her record and commitment to applying the Constitution as written, and I intend to dig further into these areas of concern, given the critical role of judges in our system of checks and balances to impartially interpret and apply the law.”
