Judge Ketanji Brown shows that the childish interrogation by GOP are no match for higher intellect


It's the second day of the historic and very intense crazy interrogation of Ketanji Brown Jackson for Supreme Court. The obviously silly and childlike attacks by Republicans on her work defending suspects at Guantánamo Bay prison are well handled by the judge who have long and easily dealt with many similar attorneys in her court room.

Given that Jackson was one of hundreds of legal professionals in a project that exposed the lies and brutality undergirding Guantánamo, “to criticize her work in that project is nonsensical to me,” says Baher Azmy, legal director of the Center for Constitutional Rights, who has represented people held at Guantánamo and defended their rights. “Her work should be valorized.”
