Fact check: Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson child porn sentences ‘pretty mainstream’ 

Josh Hawley that the nominee has a "long record" of letting child porn offenders "off the hook" during sentencing.
"In every single child porn case for which we can find records, Judge Jackson deviated from the federal sentencing guidelines in favor of child porn offenders," Hawley tweeted Thursday, highlighting nine cases from her time as a district court judge.While court records show that Jackson did impose lighter sentences than federal guidelines suggested, Hawley's insinuation neglects critical context, including the fact that the senator himself has voted to confirm at least three federal judges who also engaged in the same practice.

"Federal judges nationwide typically sentence below the [child porn] guideline in roughly 2 out of 3 cases," Berman noted on his blog, and "when deciding to go below the [child porn] guideline, typically impose sentences around 54 months below the calculated guideline minimum."

  1. Fact check; the candidate was not picked because she was the best available liberal candidate. She was picked because she was a Black woman. She's a token so now the liberal media is going to have to work overtime to elevate her to a superior status by telling us all evidence that she's a good but not a great judge are not true.
