On Thursday, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, President Joe Biden's nominee for the Supreme Court, was confirmed by a 53-47 vote in the Senate. Only three Republican senators joined all 50 Democrats in supporting her.
NBC NEWS posted an opinion objecting to "Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's charge that Jackson's pre-judicial career as a public defender indicates she has a "a natural inclination in the direction of the criminal" because a public defender's "heart is with the murderers, the criminals & that's who they're rooting for."
The same opinion piece also objected to "Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who charged that Jackson might have wanted to defend the Nazi leaders tried at Nuremberg for war crimes following World War II. "
