Carrie Severino Judicial Crisis Network
Severino was chosen on March 22, 2010, as the policy director and primary spokeswoman for the Judicial Crisis Network (JCN). JCN is a conservative advocacy group in the United States.
She and the JCN have been heavily involved in a number of political disputes involving the US Supreme Court. She was dubbed “a leader of the current right drive to oppose any Obama Supreme Court candidate” by Mother Jones in 2016.
It was under her leadership that the Judicial Crisis Network invested more than $5 million in the effort to defeat Obama’s selection of Merrick Garland as a Supreme Court nominee in 2016.
Replacing the position to which Garland had been appointed became a major topic during the 2016 Presidential election because of Severino and the Judicial Crisis Network.
Severino claimed that Trump’s victory demonstrated the desire of voters for conservatives to serve on the Supreme Court and disclosed JCN’s intention to spend $10 million on Neil Gorsuch’s nomination. She was present during Gorsuch’s inauguration at the White House.
She justified the practice of organizations like the JCN accepting financing from anonymous donors, claiming that it was a common practice. According to her, the purpose of anonymity was not secrecy but rather to shield her contributors from “abuse” if their names were made public.
