Republicans Question Supreme Court Nominee’s Role in Guantanamo Cases

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

Republicans raise concerns over Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson and her defense of Guantanamo Bay detainees. The Guantánamo Bay military prison opened in 2002 on a U.S. naval base in Cuba to imprison terrorism suspects after the 9/11 attacks. The Republican National Committee argued, “despite Jackson’s claim that she did not get to choose her clients as a public defender, she continued to advocate for Guantanamo terrorists when she went into private practice.”
