Biden Judicial Nominee Charnelle Bjelkengren Stumped by Basic Constitution Questions; Biden Judicial Nominee Ridiculed After Failing to Recall Parts of the Constitution: ‘Hoo boy this is bad’

Biden judicial nominee Charnelle Bjelkengren stumped by basic Constitution questions:
Wrong answer, Your Honor.
President Biden’s nominee for a federal judgeship in Washington state proved unable to answer simple questions about the Constitution from Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) during her confirmation hearing.
“Tell me what Article V of the Constitution does,” Kennedy asked of Spokane County Superior Court Judge Charnelle Bjelkengren during the Senate Judiciary Committee’s proceedings Wednesday.
“Article V is not coming to mind at the moment,” Bjelkengren responded.
“How about Article II?” Kennedy pressed.
“Neither is Article II,” Bjelkengren blanked, leaving Kennedy scratching his head.
Biden nominated Bjelkengren to serve as a federal judge in the Eastern District of Washington. --->READ MORE HERE
Biden judicial nominee ridiculed after failing to recall parts of the Constitution: ‘Hoo boy this is bad’:
Judge Charnelle Bjelkengren was questioned by Sen. John Kennedy Thursday
Judge Charnelle Bjelkengren, a Biden judicial nominee for U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Washington, went viral on Twitter for her failure to recall basic U.S. Constitution knowledge on Thursday.
The Senate Judiciary Committee met for a confirmation hearing earlier that morning when Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., began his time asking Bjelkengren about different parts of the U.S. Constitution.
"Tell me what Article V of the Constitution does," Kennedy requested.
"Article V is not coming to mind at the moment," she responded.
"How about Article II?" he pressed.
"Neither is Article II," Bjelkengren admitted.
The awkward exchange was shared by multiple social media users shocked at sight of a potential district court judge not knowing the U.S. Constitution.
"Hoo boy this is bad," National Review senior writer Dan McLaughlin tweeted.
Judicial Network president Carrie Severino wrote, "This is shocking to hear from a federal judicial nominee up for a lifetime appointment. Article II governs the Executive Branch. This is basic middle school civics class stuff." --->READ MORE HERE
