LISTEN: Hawley arrives to meet ABC reporter after she allegedly questions ‘Gotcha’

Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) Said better than he got from an ABC News reporter Monday who tried to knock him down for his criticisms of President Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson, when he accused her of using “White House talking points. ”

ABC’s Rachel Scott pressed the Missouri Republican and former state attorney general on why he allegedly voted for past judges who were soft on young sexual predators but objected to Jackson’s quick confirmation.

“But how can it be acceptable to a lower court, if a higher court is not admissible?” Scott asked Hawley.

“I am not sure which judge you are referring to, if there are judges who are soft on child pornography, in a systematic fashion,” he replied, adding, “But again, I just vote for a Justice of the Supreme Court. ”

Scott said she checked Hawley’s voting records for judicial candidates, which she said “shows you voted for at least three federal judges who took the measures. lighter punishment for child pornography. So how do you solve that problem? “

“I know that’s the White House’s point, but I think it’s a dangerous issue,” the senator continued. “You have to be careful with that. It’s the old story, ‘Well, everyone else is jumping off a cliff, so am I.’

Daily rope extra note:

Scott asked Hawley if he regretted his previous votes, to which the senator declined to ask for the names of the judges and the cases when they were found to be soft on pornography. children. “Well, I’m not sure which judge you’re talking about; I have not seen the White House say anything on this issue. But this is their new line,” Republicans told Scott.

“It’s public information, we actually have it, here,” Scott told Hawley, naming Judge Joseph F. Bianco, who was appointed by then-President Donald Trump as a Second Circuit US Judge. Ky.

“And what are those cases?” Hawley asked Scott several times.

“You voted for them, should you also know about their achievements?” Scott replied.

“But what are those cases?” Hawley asked again.

When she couldn’t answer, it made Hawley chuckle and suggest, “You don’t know their record.”

“Which cases, was it after their confirmation or before?” Hawley posed again.

Scott began to reply, “Did you expect me to just…”

“Well, I hope you will know the truth because you are asking me about them,” the MP told her. “So, how many cases did they have? Judge Jackson has seven, I just listed them. So what do these judges have? ”

“The bigger problem, senator, which I don’t think so—” Scott said, snapping gears before Hawley stepped in again.

“So you don’t know. You are only here to do a ‘gotcha.’ When you know the truth, come back to me,” he said. “Good luck!”


Hawley publicly questioned Jackson’s fitness for the bench based on her performance last week on Twitter.

“I am studying Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s file, reading her opinions, articles, interviews and speeches,” the senator posted on Twitter. “I’ve noticed an alarming pattern when it comes to Judge Jackson’s treatment of sex offenders, especially child predators.”

“On the federal bench, Judge Jackson made her disturbing views,” Hawley said. “In every child porn case that we could find records of, Judge Jackson went against federal sentencing guidelines in favor of a child porn offender.”

“This is a disturbing record for any judge, especially one nominated to the highest court in the land,” he alleges. “The protection of the most vulnerable is unquestionable. Putting child predators in jail is not up for debate.” LISTEN: Hawley arrives to meet ABC reporter after she allegedly questions ‘Gotcha’
