WATCH: Biden Judicial Nominee is Completely Bamboozled When Louisiana Senator John Kennedy Asks Him a Simple Legal Question

Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) is a straight-shooting national treasure complete with an incisive wit and dry sense of humor. He has displayed these talents throughout his time in the Senate whether by stumping unqualified Biden nominees and or in interviews with reporters.

On Wednesday, he put his considerable talents to great use by bamboozling a clueless Biden District Court nominee named S. Kato Crews during Crews’s Wednesday confirmation hearing.

Crews currently serves a Magistrate Judge in Colorado. He has been in the legal arena for more than two decades.

One would think based on his experience he would be familiar with all questions regarding constitutional law.

Kennedy asked Crews a question about how one analyzes a Brady motion. A Brady motion is a procedure which requires prosecutors to disclose evidence to the defense. It is named after the Supreme Court case that affirmed it, Brady v. Maryland.

This is a question a first year law student should be able to answer. Yet Crews had no clue how to respond.



Kennedy: Tell me how you analyze a Brady motion.

Crews: How I analyze a Brady motion…Senator, in my four and half years on the bench, I don’t believe I’ve had the occasion to address a Brady motion in my career.

Kennedy: Do you know what a Brady motion is?

Crews: Senator, in my time on the bench, I’ve not had occasion to address that and so it’s not coming to mind at the moment what a Brady motion is.

Kennedy then asked Crews if he was familiar Brady v. Maryland. Crews claimed he had heard the name of the case.

But when Kennedy asked what Brady v. Maryland was about, Crews responded that it “involved something regarding the Second Amendment.”

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was dumbfounded at Crews’s complete ignorance and responded on social media.

Unfortunately, Crews will likely have no problem getting confirmed for a lifetime judicial position because the Democrats control the Senate.
