U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after attending Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s investiture to the Supreme Court of the United States.

"I want to congratulate Justice Jackson and her family on this momentous day. Justice Jackson and I have disagreements about judicial philosophy, but we both love this country that allows us to respectfully wrestle through those disagreements and then still celebrate this day and her new calling. Right now, there’s a lot of sound and fury about whether or not the Supreme Court has lost legitimacy. It’s a load of bunk. The Court’s legitimacy comes from its constitutional role, not the popularity of its opinions. I’m certain that I won’t agree with all of Justice Jackson’s opinions, but I’m not going to attack the credibility of the Court when we see things differently, and I wish more of my colleagues would take a similar approach. America doesn’t work when partisans try to burn down our institutions."
