Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Tuesday pressed Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson on the importance of her Christian faith, asking at one point, “Could you fairly judge a Catholic?”
The exchange took place Tuesday in the early hours of the second day of Jackson’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Currently a federal judge serving on the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, Jackson, 51, is President Joe Biden’s nominee to replace retiring Justice Stephen G. Breyer.
“What faith are you, by the way?” Graham asked.
“Senator, I am … Protestant,” Jackson said.
