'Shielded one of Hillary Clinton's top State Department aides from scrutiny'

The chief of the Senate Judiciary committee has announced that the confirmation hearing for Ketanji Brown Jackson, Joe Biden's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, will begin March 21.

Just the News reported one of the issues Jackson may have to handle involves her support for sex offenders.

In fact, she has complained about the "excessiveness" of their punishments.

That came in an article she published – anonymously – back in 1996 in the Harvard Law Review.

She failed to disclose her authorship until the Senate Judiciary Committee asked her to list published writings.

The paper criticized the "excessiveness" of punishments for sex offenders, complaining that could be "unfair and unnecessarily burdensome."
