3:05 pm
. >> that's in stark contrast from republican senators. >> ukraine can win! they can win this war against russia. they need to have the lethal aid necessary to push back against its russians. >> our posture should be to win. help the ukrainians actually win. generally speaking the administration has tried to do the right thing but never soon enough. >> winning the war will also mean winning in cyberspace. russian intelligence is tacking companiy. the white house insists of any short of mass obstructions doesn't count. >> we would distinguish between gaining access to a system which could be used for a variety of purposes. intelligence collection, or mere preparation for a future attack.
3:06 pm

3:07 pm
looking live at capitol hill where judge ketanji brown jackson has been facing senator's questions all day. for the first time as nominee for the u.s. supreme court. republican senators were grilling her over her record as a judge. this confirmation hearing has had some fireworks. fox news shannon bream joins us from capitol hill. good evening. >> shannon: that back and forth continues. judge jackson faces questions on everything from abortions to guns and her record on crime. as both a judge and federal public defender. questioning a supreme court nominee judge ketanji brown jackson began in earnest. with continued efforts by senators to get jackson to express her judicial philosophy. she avoided a special label but said this. >> i have limited power. i am trying in every case to
3:08 pm
stay in my lane. >> today brought a critique of the sentences for defendants possessing child pornography. >> every singe case 100% you sentenced to the defenders to below not just the guidelines but what the prosecutor asked for. >> if every case i did my duty to hold the defendants accountable in light of the evidence. >> shannon: judge jackson faced questions on freedom of the press and the sanctity of supreme court precedence and she was good with guantanamo bay detainees. >> why call the sect of defense rumsfeld and george bush war criminals. >> shannon: the reference was to
3:09 pm
a legal filing jackson filed on behalf of gitmo detainees naming rumsfeld and bush in war crimes. one of the most heated moments involved gitmo but not judge jackson. a dispute between senators durbin and graham. >> look at the afghan government made up of former detainees at gitmo. the whole thing by the left about this war ain't working. >> shannon: normally they give every senator a chance for 30 minutes of questions. they are aiming to wrap up between 9 and 10 o'clock eastern tonight. if they don't finish they will start fresh at 9 a.m. eastern.
3:10 pm
>> bret: shannon bream. see you forfox news @ night. >> we have to hold people accountable but fairly under our constitution. that doesn't mean that lawyers condone the behavior of their clients. they are making arguments on behalf of their clients in defense of the constitution and in service of the court. >> bret: questions about whether judge ketanji brown jackson is soft on crime up on capitol hill. our panel. josh politics editor. hugh, and jonathan. the white house has to it feel confident about where they are just looking at the numbers on capitol hill. as you go through the back and forth, you realize it is a 50-50 split in the senate. you still have to get there.
3:11 pm
>> yes. the most useful way to think about these hearings is to look at it through the eyes of mitch mcconnell. mcconnell viewed this nomination as low stakes. this is from a man who dedicated his life to the american courthouse. it's not going to change the fundamental balance of the court. he also knows he doesn't have the votes unless she does something spectacular in terms of a mishap in this hearing which we have not seen so far. so the white house feels confident they have 50 votes. hoping susan collins might get there which would get them 51. they are not getting their hopes up of getting republicans to
3:12 pm
vote for her. >> bret: hugh, the substance of these hearings today with the questions by republicans? >> it's been good substance. i leaned forward when the rest of the country goes to sleep. the most interesting exchange was between ted cruz and judge ketanji brown jackson who will be confirmed easily. she said i don't know anything about critical race theory. the left says crt didn't exist but there are cooks that come out of the atmosphere of crt. i was astonished when judge
3:13 pm
brown jackson said i don't know big it. josh hawley is scoring points on the sentencing with regards to child pornagraphy defendants. it's mind boggling that anyone would get 3 months. the explanation left me thinking she had not done that through. but she will be confirmed. >> bret: the numbers are there. this is with ted cruz about the child pornography. >> 100% of the time you sentence those in possession of child pornography to below what the prosecution is asking for yankees, senators. --? >> yes, senator. i take these cases very seriously as a mother. in every case involving these terrible crimes, i looked at the
3:14 pm
law and the facts. >> bret: josh, is there it another side of this for republicans? a danger if you will? >> well, the strategy from ted cruz and josh hawley is to use judge brown jackson as a representative of a progressive view on criminal rights. i don't think it works. i think hawley scored some points about the life sentence on a child pornography case. in large she came across as familiar with the details of these cases. i think the republicans are trying to make a larger argument against democrats of being too soft on crime and indulging criminals. judge brown jackson will get confirmed. probably will not get just susan collins but one or two other
3:15 pm
senator republicans. there is a vulnerability there not just with brown jackson but democrats and their views on crime. >> bret: vice-president harris was leading this search or said to. one thing she was to do. this made the rounds on social media. take a listen. >> the governor and i and we were all doing the tour of the library here. talking about the significance of the passage of time. right. the significance of the passage of time. when you think about it, there is great significance to the passage of times of what we need to do to create these jobs. there is such great significance to the passage of time when we think about a day in the life of our children. >> bret: a lot of passage of
3:16 pm
time in that sound bite. it comes as a new book comes out. it's by our friend. politico has a write up. harris allies complain that she was handled an impossible portfolio. bettingfield noted this was not the first time that harris has fallen short of sky high expectations and: jonathan, the white house is pushing back and saying this is hearsay. there is a political vulnerability for vice-president harris in this white house. >> i don't know if this is a new statement.
3:17 pm
the statement i read this morning in politico was not a denial. [laughing]. it was very carefully worded. it said that -- it was one of those if you studied the art of flacking somewhere in between. that's not an isolated view. i don't think it's a surprise to anyone there has been a large amount of frustration inside the west wing over the last year at the coverage in particular of the vice-president and some of her missteps. there has been frustration in the other direction. biden stuck by her. no suggestion he will throw her under the bus. he gets very frustrated i am told when he sees stories about her that suggest leaks from inside his building. he read the riot act to folks he
3:18 pm
doesn't want to see this. they are in this position. this adds more color to the picture we already have of this. >> bret: hugh, as far as delivering a speech and a message she hasn't hit the mark yet. >> no. that story about her staff turnover a speech writer was part of the staff that turned over. the ice is forming over the vice-president's reputation as a being a light weight. the only way to break out from the ice is to do interviews with you or do the sunday shows. take hard questions and hit them out of the park and demonstrate capacity and grasp. she hasn't done that once. she has given me clips to play on the radio show. i played that clip 3 times this morning to stewart's class time passages. it's so inane. give serious conversation with people. >> bret: i have invited her many

up next it's a deal in the making that could push middle east allies to china. >> if there is an iran nuclear deal to block them to getting a nuclear weapon. we will do that well. it's in the american national security interest to do so. with directv stream, i can get live tv and on demand anywhere. look: serena williams... matrix... serena... matrix... serena... matrix. ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ get your tv together with the best of live and on demand. directv stream. you know liberty mutual customizes your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need? like how i customized this scarf?
