Last week on MSNBC, Elie Mystal, “justice correspondent” for The Nation, said that Republican Sen. Josh Hawley has been trying to incite violence against President Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson. How so? By having the audacity to scrutinize her past decisions on the bench:

“What Josh Hawley is doing — let’s be very clear — what Josh Hawley is doing when he tries to do this is he’s trying to get her killed. He is trying to get violence done against a Supreme Court nominee,” said Mystal. That’s the same “justice correspondent” who was on “The View” recently and called the Constitution “kind of trash.”

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley heard that and has some thoughts:

According to the Left, what was done to Brett Kavanaugh was a necessary part of the process, but a Republican scrutinizing a SCOTUS nominee’s record is akin to an attempt to incite violence.

Turley continued:

It’s pure insanity, but here we are.
