(TargetLiberty.org) – Yet again, one of President Biden’s nominees has run into trouble in the Senate. This time it’s his choice for a Supreme Court justice to replace Stephen Breyer, who announced his retirement in January. Now, Republicans are worried Biden’s pick is being funded by left-wing extremists.
Sen. @LindseyGrahamSC challenged the "dark money" that may have influenced Biden's choice of choosing Ketanji Brown Jackson for SCOTUS.

On February 25, President Biden nominated Ketanji Brown Jackson to replace Breyer on the Supreme Court. Jackson’s selection was controversial, because Biden based the choice on race and sex rather than suitability for the job, but it seems far-left funding networks could also have been a strong influence.
Jackson’s confirmation hearing began on March 21, and Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) quickly raised concerns about who wanted her to get the job. Jackson has told the Senate panel she doesn’t have any judicial philosophy. Graham pointed out that her nomination was supported by the Arabella Group, a pressure group funded by George Soros and other wealthy liberals aimed at causing “deep social change.” If she doesn’t have an agenda, he wondered, why would wealthy liberals spend money – and allegedly pressurize Biden – to get her on the Court?
Graham told Jackson he wants to find out about her judicial philosophy, because people on “the far extreme part of the Left, believe you were the best bet.” If Leftist dark money and influence helped Jackson get the nomination, what sort of justice will she be? We need impartial judges, not ones chosen by the far Left.
