Ginsburg blasts Supreme Court confirmation process as 'highly partisan show'
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Thursday slammed the Senate’s Supreme Court confirmation process as a “highly partisan show.”
“The Republicans move in lockstep, so do the Democrats,” she said while speaking Wednesday at George Washington University. “I wish I could wave a magic wand and have it go back to the way it was.”
Ginsburg, the Supreme Court’s leading liberal, made her comments in the midst of a bitter confirmation battle over Judge Brett Kavanaugh, whom President Trump has nominated to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.
If confirmed, Kavanugh would become Trump’s second nominee on the court. The first, Justice Neil Gorsuch, was confirmed after Senate Republicans delayed the confirmation proceedings until after the 2016 presidential election. Gorsuch filled the seat opened up by Justice Antonin Scalia’s death.
