RINO Susan Collins said that she plans to vote to confirm Biden’s SCOTUS nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court.

 The senator from Maine is the first Republican to announce her intent to back President Biden’s nominee.

Collins said in a statement on Wednesday:

“After reviewing Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s extensive record, watching much of her hearing testimony, and meeting with her twice in person, I have concluded that she possesses the experience, qualifications, and integrity to serve as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court” 

“I will, therefore, vote to confirm her to this position.”

Collins told the New York Times that it’s her belief that Jackson will not be “bending the law to meet a personal preference:”

“In recent years, senators on both sides of the aisle have gotten away from what I perceive to be the appropriate process for evaluating judicial nominees, In my view, the role under the Constitution assigned to the Senate is to look at the credentials, experience, and qualifications of the nominee. It is not to assess whether a nominee reflects the individual ideology of a senator or would vote exactly as an individual senator would want.”

“There can be no question that she is qualified to be a Supreme Court justice, breadth of experience as a law clerk, attorney in private practice, federal public defender, member of the U.S. Sentencing Commission, and district court judge for more than eight years.”

100 Percent FedUp noted:

Without the vote of Collins, there would likely have been a need for Kamala Harris to cast the tie-breaking vote to confirm Jackson.

Collins is the first Republican to publicize her support for Jackson, and there has been no indication from moderate Republican senators Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney whether they will be supporting the Supreme Court nominee. Either way, Jackson will likely be confirmed without the need for additional Republican support if the Democrats remain united.

    She is not going to do anything. The corporation is bankrupted and they were illegally seated. They were told to go home. 1 April, they no longer have a job and that supreme court spot is no longer viable.
