Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson belonged to a Harvard student group that hosted an antisemitic speaker, according to a new report.
Jackson was part of the Black Students Association in 1992 when Leonard Jeffries was invited to give a lecture that accused Jews of being slave traders.
A Harvard student group in which Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson was a member hosted a known antisemite who accused Jews of slave trading and said Hitler “was not my problem.”

“Jackson, who graduated from Harvard in 1992, was among the association’s members at the time of the event, according to a report by Fox News. However, a White House official told the Washington Examiner that Jackson ‘did not go to this,'” according to the outlet.
“Jackson is currently a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for Washington, D.C., and was nominated last month by President Joe Biden to fill the seat of retiring Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer,” the report added.

The issue is one of several that could be used against Jackson during her Senate nomination hearings later this month.
The topic is likely to come up as many conservatives will seek a way to discredit Jackson over her progressive policies that reflect the actions of Democrats and the Biden administration.
