VIDEO: Ketanji Brown Jackson Supreme Court confirmation hearings, day 3

Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson returned to the Senate for a third day of hearings. She faced senators again, as Republicans try to paint her as soft on crime and Democrats heralded the historic nature of her nomination to become the first Black woman on the high court.

Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey drew tears from Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson during the hearing with the words, “You are worthy,” and others like them. The Democratic senator, who is Black, delivered emotional remarks on racial progress as he addressed Jackson. Booker told her, “It’s hard for me not to look at you and not see my mom. I see my ancestors and yours.”

Sen. Mike Lee's line of questioning from day 3 is below:
