Ruth Bader Ginsberg is a Supreme Court justice. She took the oath of office in 1993 after being appointed by President Bill Clinton. She is one of three female judges on the Supreme Court. Ginsburg has made some recent statements about the GOP nominee, Donald J. Trump. In at least two public statements, she has shown clear partisanship and bias through negative comments about the presumptive GOP candidate.
In the New York Times, Ginsburg said, “I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president.” She said that if Trump is elected president, we should all move to New Zealand. In an earlier interview with the Associated Press, when asked what she thought about a Trump presidency, Ginsburg stated, “I don’t want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs.”
According to the Chicago Tribune, and others, Ginsburg is guilty of breaching the federal code of judicial conduct, which states that as a general rule, judges shall not “publicly endorse or publicly oppose another candidate for public office. As a justice, she is also prohibited from making speeches on behalf of political organizations or give money to candidates.
The Federalist Papers Project reports:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has crossed over the line, violated the Judicial Code of Conduct and needs to step down from the nation’s highest bench.
In at least two interviews, the court’s most famous liberal has bashed Donald Trump, showing clear partisanship and bias – something unheard-of in the history of the Supreme Court.
This kind of disgraceful behavior is beneath the Supreme Court. Justice Ginsberg should be ashamed of herself and step down immediately.
