‘How Can I Believe You?’: Hawley Exposes Biden Judicial Nominee for Lying About Ties to Antisemitic Organization, Support for Far-left Candidate

Thursday, June 20, 2024

In today’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) pressed one of President Joe Biden’s judicial nominees, Karla Marie Campbell, on why she repeatedly lied under oath about her ties to a left-wing organization that has advocated for the abolition of America’s police and the destruction of Israel. 

“I have to say, I’ve never seen a witness—never—in five years on this committee, sit here and lie to us and change the story person to person,” said Senator Hawley.

Senator Hawley further signaled his opposition to Campbell’s nomination after she wouldn’t explain her previous financial support for a far-left political candidate who claimed Republican Senators were satanists.

“Either all of these people are liars or you are . . . But given what you’ve told us under oath today, I think the answer is, you are. And, for that reason, you are utterly unqualified to sit on the federal bench,” Senator Hawley concluded.
