The Biden administration’s judicial nominees are a cause for concern among Republicans, with Judge Kato Crews being the latest to show a lack of basic legal knowledge.
During his confirmation hearing for the U.S. District Court of Colorado, Judge Crews was unable to answer a question on the Brady motion, a legal concept established by the Supreme Court in 1963.
Here are five key takeaways:
The Brady motion requires prosecutors to disclose potentially exculpatory evidence to the defense.
Judge Crews’ inability to answer the question demonstrates a lack of understanding of basic legal concepts.
Judge Charnelle Bjelkengren, another Biden judicial nominee, was previously unable to answer a constitutional question.
These nominees are being considered for lifelong appointments to the federal bench.
Republicans must oppose these unqualified nominees to prevent the Biden administration from stacking the courts with judges who lack a basic understanding of the law.
In conclusion, the Biden administration must do better in selecting judicial nominees who possess the necessary legal knowledge and qualifications.
