The Biden administration has made a number of controversial appointments to federal courts, appeals courts, and the Supreme Court.

Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson came under fire for her views on criminal justice reform and light sentencing for repeat offenders and people who committed sexual crimes.

Another Biden nominee who was put up to be on the 9th Circuit Appeals Court was later found to on the board of a Prison Abolition group.

This week, another situation arose with one of Biden’s judicial nominees Judge Charnelle Bjelkengren, who he nominated to serve in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Washington.

When Senator John Kennedy (R-La.) asked Bjelkengren elementary questions about the U.S constitution, she was unable to answer them.  Kennedy asked her what Article II and Article V of the U.S constitution do, and she was unable to come up with answers.

President Biden is “proudly” sticking by his judicial nominee who couldn’t answer basic questions about the U.S. Constitution, the White House told Fox News Digital.

Biden nominated Judge Charnelle Bjelkengren to serve on the bench U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Washington, who failed to answer Louisiana GOP Senator John Kennedy’s law school quiz questions about the Constitution.

Kennedy asked Bjelkengren what Articles II and V of the nation’s primary legal document do, which Biden’s nominee was unable to answer.

Article II of the Constitution vests and enumerates the powers of the Executive Branch while Article V establishes the process for constitutional amendments.

Fox News Digital asked the White House if Biden sticks by his nominee who couldn’t answer the simple legal questions.

“Proudly,” White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates told Fox News Digital on Thursday.

Bjelkengren also could not answer what “purposivism” was, either, saying that she “was not faced with that precise question.”
