Thanks to the “Spartacus” and the Democrats, Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation resembles a circus more than anything.
Leftist hero, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said the way things are going during Supreme Court confirmations “is wrong” and “highly partisan.”
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg has a problem with the way this Congress handles Supreme Court confirmation hearings.
The 85-year-old justice was asked Wednesday how the hearings of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh compared with her own during an event at George Washington University Law School.
President Bill Clinton nominated Ginsburg to the Supreme Court in June 1993, and the U.S. Senate voted 96-3 to confirm her two months later.
“The way it was was right. The way it is is wrong,” Ginsburg said.
During Kavanaugh’s hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democrats have pushed back hard against President Donald Trump’s nominee in an attempt to stop the Supreme Court from leaning even further to the conservative right. Democrats are worried about how Kavanaugh, who would replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, would rule on issues relating to the investigation into Trump’s campaign and Russian interference in the U.S. election. Also a point of contention: Democrats warn that Kavanaugh may threaten the Roe v. Wade ruling that established the right to abortion.
Adding to the drama surrounding the hearing, Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) released Kavanaugh’s previously confidential emails on the third day, giving Democrats even more fuel to scrutinize the judge.
Ginsburg said Wednesday that the “atmosphere” surrounding Supreme Court hearings were “truly bipartisan” when she was nominated in 1993, noting that she won the votes of nearly all the Republican senators despite her work with the American Civil Liberties Union.
TDS has turned the Democratic Party upside down and they are making it too obvious.
