BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – President Joe Biden’s nominee for a federal judgeship in Washington state is facing scrutiny for what critics call an insufficient resume after already triggering backlash over her nomination when she recently failed to answer simple questions about the Constitution.

Judge Charnelle Bjelkengren of Spokane County Superior Court made headlines last month during her confirmation hearing to serve on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Washington.

Appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Bjelkengren was quizzed about basic knowledge of the Constitution.

“Tell me what Article V of the Constitution does,” asked Sen. John Kennedy, R-La.

“Article V is not coming to mind at the moment,” Bjelkengren responded.

“How about Article II?” Kennedy said.

“Neither is Article II,” Bjelkengren answered.

“Do you know anything about the War of 1812?” Kennedy asked.

“I’m not sure,” Bjelkengren answered. “What year was it fought?”
