(FreedomBeacon.com)- In a move that shocked absolutely nobody, on Monday, Utah’s freshman RINO Senator Mitt Romney announced that he would be voting to confirm President Biden’s radical left Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson.
Romney, who met with Jackson last week, released a statement describing her as “a well-qualified jurist and a person of honor.”
During their Tuesday meeting last week, Romney said he enjoyed their time together and he praised Jackson’s “dedication to public service.”
Oddly enough, last year when President Biden nominated Ketanji Brown Jackson to her current seat on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, Romney voted against her confirmation.
So the same judge whom Romney didn’t think was confirmation material for the lower court suddenly transformed into a “well-qualified jurist” now that she’s poised for a lifetime appointment on the highest court?
How’d that happen?
In his statement on Monday, Romney 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.”
But not for the DC Circuit Court of Appeals.
Mitt Romney isn’t the only RINO Republican who has announced his support for Jackson. Monday, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski also announced that she would vote for Jackson’s confirmation as well.
In announcing her decision, Murkowski said Jackson would bring to the Court “a range of experience from the courtroom that few can match given her background in litigation.”
Murkowski claimed her decision to support Jackson was a rejection of 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.
This gives Ketanji Brown Jackson 53 votes in the Senate, clearing the way for her to become the next Supreme Court Justice.
