The confirmation hearings for Ketanji Brown Jackson, President Biden’s nominee to be an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, are expected to begin on Monday.
The event is scheduled to start on Monday, March 21, at 11 a.m. ET. Watch the hearing in the player below.
They are scheduled to last four days and will include two days of questions, as well as remarks from the American Bar Association and a closed-door discussion of Jackson’s FBI background check.
If confirmed by the Senate, Judge Jackson – who currently serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit – would become the first Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court.
You can watch the hearings on major television networks, including CBS, ABC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News, as well as on players on their websites. The hearings will also be available on CSPAN and via a livestream on the Senate Judiciary Committee website.
With Democrats controlling 50 seats in the Senate and Vice President Kamala Harris breaking tie votes, Jackson can be confirmed without Republican support, and Democrats hope the Senate will hold its final vote before it breaks for a two-week recess on April 8.
Three Republicans, Senators Susan Collins of Maine, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, backed Jackson’s nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals to the District of Columbia Circuit last year.
