SEAN HANNITY (HOST): You say that this came both as a judge and a policymaker, meaning her background, and you are concerned that this is a record that will endanger children and you cite other cases. I mean, how do somebody facing a 10-year sentence for something this serious only get three months in prison?
SEN. JOSH HAWLEY (GUEST, R-MO): Yeah, that's the problem, Sean. If you look at what she's done as a judge on the bench when she had the chance to put away child predators over and over again when it comes to these child porn cases, these are pedophiles we're talking about, she chose to give them the lightest sentence possible in case after case. I mean, you mentioned one, the guidelines recommended ten years. She gave him three months. And we could go on and on. The problem is I haven't been able to find a single case where she has had a child porn offender, a pedophile, in front of her where she hasn't given him the most lenient sentence she possibly could.
And again, this is someone since law school who has been saying that the offender registries may be unconstitutional, that notifying parents about sex offenders in their neighborhood may be unconstitutional, and who voted as a member of the U.S. Sentencing Commission, she voted to get rid of the mandatory minimum sentences for child porn. So this is a long pattern. It stretches over many years and we need to get answers on this.
