Tamara Keith and Laura Barrón-López on Biden’s Strategy in Ukraine, Supreme Court Hearings



Laura Barron-Lopez:

It is, on the right, what she can with simple Democratic support.

But the administration would like to see some Republicans vote to confirm it. It looks like Senator Susan Collins is someone who could very well do that. But, that being said, the White House, prior to these hearings, tried to forestall this Republican onslaught that she is soft on crime by declaring her personal relationship, her family members who were law enforcement .

It was endorsed by the largest organization that represents police chiefs, some 30,000 police chiefs. They approved it. One thing I think is important about her in the context of her case, particularly the experience as a public defender that she has, is that no one on the Supreme Court has ever been a public defender.

The closest was Thurgood Marshall, who had experience as a criminal defense attorney. But other than that, she would be the first. And one thing that I’ve seen, even the libertarian think tank Cato Institute mentions, is that they think diversity on the ground might be important because of the continued erosion of the Sixth Amendment.

This means that increasingly, in the modern justice system, people are not getting trials — jury trials. That’s gone a lot in the modern justice system, and someone like her can look to balance those changes.
