Biden Supreme Court announcement during Russia-Ukraine war 'extremely inappropriate,' Blackburn says

Blackburn made the comments on Friday after sources revealed that Biden will nominate D.C. Circuit Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer.

President Biden’s announcement just days after an unprovoked full-scale invasion by Rusia is extremely inappropriate,” Blackburn said in a statement.

The White House declined to comment on Blackburn’s criticism.

Circuit, she is one of our nation’s brightest legal minds and will be an exceptional Justice.

Biden will make the announcement on Friday, marking the first Supreme Court pick of his presidency after Breyer, 83, announced his retirement last month.

The president’s announcement comes two days after Putin invaded Ukraine leading to the largest land war in Europe since World War II.
