Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and John Kennedy (R-LA) eviscerated a Biden judicial nominee on Wednesday over her 2022 recommendation that a transgender serial rapist, William McClain (aka July Justine Shelby) be housed in a women's prison despite previous convictions for raping children and possessing child pornography.

The Senators grilled U.S. Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn, who was nominated to serve on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. Netburn transferred McClain despite an objection from the Board of Prisons.

In a handwritten note, McClain (Shelby) said he feared for his health, safety and life and suffered from gender dysphoria (of course a convicted child rapist wouldn't expect to fare well in prison).

"Miss Shelby said I don't want to go to a male prison. I want to go to a female prison," Kennedy told Netburn. "And the Board of Prisons said 'What planet did you parachute in from? You're going to a male prison with this kind of record.' And you sent him to a female prison, did you? You said that the Board of Prisons was trying to violate Ms Shelby, former Mr. McClain's, constitutional right, didn't you?"

Kennedy pointed out that Shelby was convicted for molesting a 9-year-old boy and raping a 17-year-old girl, and had sent child porn to other sex offenders.

"I issued a report and recommendation to the district judge recommending that the district judge transfer the petitioner to a women's facility," Netburn replied. "My recommendation was that the petitioner's serious medical needs were being denied by keeping her in a men's facility."

Cruz then began his line of questioning.

"And this individual. Six-foot-two, biologically a man. A minute ago you said that when this man decided that he was a she, that you said this individual was quote, I wrote it down, ‘sober and entirely a female,’" Cruz said.

"Sorry, what I meant to say was hormonally a female," Netburn replied, admitting that McClain had male body parts.

"So you took a six-foot-two serial rapist. Serial child rapist with male genitalia," Cruz continued. "And he said, you know, I'd like to be in a women's prison. And your answer was, ‘That sounds great to me.’ Let me ask you something. The other women in that prison, do they have any rights?

"Do they have the right not to have a six-foot-two man who is a repeat serial rapist put in as their cellmate?" Cruz continued.

Netburn attempted to defend her decision, robotically repeating iterations of "Senator Cruz, I consider the facts presented to me, and I reached a decision."

Cruz shot back - "This is not a judge's order ... This is a political activist, by the way. The beginning of your order, says. At birth. People are typically assigned a gender. I gotta say, that would astonish a lot of Americans. A lot of Americans think you go to the hospital, a baby is born, and you congratulations."

"You have a little boy, a little girl the assigned a gender. I know you went to Brown (University), but it sounds like it's in a college faculty lounge with no bearing on reality, the Bureau of Prison argued," Cruz said. "What I'm saying right now, that if you put this person in a female prison, there will be a risk of sexual assault to the women. And you know what you did? You said you didn't care about the women. I'm going to quote what you wrote. You wrote, quote, the Bureau of Prisons claimed penal logical interest in protecting female prisoners from sexual violence and trauma. This interest is legitimate."
