(FreedomBeacon.com)- On Monday, Utah’s RINO Senator Mitt Romney announced that he would vote for President Biden’s radical left Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation, calling her a “well-qualified jurist.”
Romney’s decision came as a bit of a surprise, since ten months ago when President Biden nominated Jackson to her current seat on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, Romney voted against her confirmation.
In his statement on Monday, Romney said he came to his decision after reviewing Jackson’s record and her testimony before the Judiciary Committee. He admitted that he didn’t expect to agree with Jackson’s every decision on the Supreme Court, but he believed that she “more than meets the standard of excellence and integrity.”
So either Mitt Romney didn’t bother reviewing her record before he voted against her last year or Romney suddenly decided that a radical left judge who has a history of leniency toward child sex predators is a “well-qualified jurist.”
Senator Romney’s office refuses to explain what changed from last year to this year or why a judge Romney didn’t think was qualified for the lower court is suddenly qualified to serve a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the country.
The only new information that came out at Jackson’s confirmation hearing was her lenient sentencing of child sex predators, her embrace of Critical Race Theory, her inability to define a woman, and the fact that she doesn’t believe in the concept of Natural Rights.
Even knowing all that, Mitt Romney still thinks Ketanji Brown Jackson should sit on the Supreme Court.
But Romney isn’t the only RINO Republican who has announced his support for Jackson. Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski also said she would vote for Jackson’s confirmation as well, saying Jackson would bring to the Court “a range of experience from the courtroom that few can match given her background in litigation.”
Murkowski also said her decision to support Jackson was her way of rejecting the “corrosive politicization of the review process for Supreme Court nominees” which she blamed on both parties.
Romney and Murkowski now join Maine Republican Susan Collins who last week announced she supported Jackson’s nomination, giving Jackson 53 votes in the Senate.
