Melanie Arter, CNS News, February 3, 2022

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday that President Joe Biden’s record speaks for itself when it comes to nominating “an extraordinarily diverse bench of qualified individuals to serve on the courts.”

CBS White House Correspondent Weijia Jiang asked if there’s another vacancy on the high court whether Biden will make a pledge to nominate an Asian-American or LGBTQ justice.


“I don’t have any new pledges to announce for you, but I think I would point you to his record, which speaks to his commitment to ensuring the court is more diverse — lower courts are more diverse, the higher courts are more diverse — and that that is something he certainly will continue to look at as a priority,” she said.
