Wow, I’m blown away by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, just the fact that she was awake enough to do an interview is impressive in itself, but she actually made some sense!
Ginsburg came right out and said it – the culprit for the division shown during the Kavanaugh hearings is Congress!
Notice she didn’t say President Trump.
Congress is a mess. It is entirely self-focused, a bunch of elitist politicians that long ago stopped working for the people and now only work to enrich themselves.
And to take the attention off of what they’re doing, they keep us divided and fighting against each other.
So when Ginsburg points the finger firmly at Congress for the division, I have to say she’s right!
Here is more on the story, from CNN:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg labeled Congress the "culprit" for the polarization of the judicial confirmation process, according to The Washington Post.
During a discussion Wednesday night at the federal courthouse in Washington, Ginsburg alluded to the newest Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's contentious confirmation process this fall, the newspaper reported.
According to the Post, Ginsburg then noted that the late Justice Antonin Scalia was confirmed to the bench unanimously.
"What a difference in time that was from what we are witnessing today," Ginsburg said, the Post reported.
"To me, the obvious culprit is Congress," Ginsburg said, commenting on how fractured the confirmation process is, the Post reported.
The Senate confirmed Kavanaugh earlier this month on a 50-48 vote -- one of the closest votes in history.
The 85-year-old justice, who recently marked 25 years on the bench, also lamented what she said was a lack of effort to "reach across the aisle," the newspaper noted.
