Josh Hawley, R-Mo., questions Attorney General nominee William Barr during a Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington. Hawley is facing conservative backlash after raising concerns with President Donald Trump's nominee to a high-profile appeals court. The Judicial Crisis Network on Monday announced plans to spend $500,000 on Missouri ads to sway Hawley to support D.C.-area U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals nominee Neomi Rao.

WASHINGTON D.C. (Missourinet) Before her opening statement Monday, Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson heard remarks from U.S. Senators including Josh Hawley of Missouri.
After a Twitter barrage of criticism last week, Senator Hawley voiced his opinion Monday about what he claims is evidence of Judge Jackson not being tough enough on sex offenders.
He cited seven cases where the judge gave less than the recommended punishment for some sex offenders.

The senator also complimented Judge Jackson calling her “enormously thoughtful and accomplished.”
