Right Before Trump’s Travel Ban Goes To Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg Gets Massive News

by Brian Hayes | Top Right News

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is facing demands from many corners to recuse herself from the high court’s deliberations of President Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban order, given her stated animus toward Trump during the 2016 campaign.

The Supreme Court set Monday, June 12, as the deadline for challengers to the travel ban to submit their responses. The Trump administration has requested expedited proceedings in the case, meaning a ruling to lift or keep in place a 4th Circuit order blocking implementation of the order could happen relatively soon.

Ginsburg was a very vocal opponent of Trump’s presidential candidacy, disparaging him in the media on multiple occasions last summer.

“He is a faker. He has no consistency about him,” she told CNN last July. “He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns?”

When asked by The Associated Press how the Supreme Court might be affected by a Trump presidency, she said: “I don’t want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs.”

Days later Ginsburg told The New York Times, “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 added that the prospect of Trump as president reminded her of something her late husband used to say: “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”

Gregg Jarrett in a piece for Fox News notes that federal law requires that “any justice …shall disqualify himself [or herself] in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned. He shall also disqualify himself … where he has a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party.”

Additionally, attorney David Weisberg in an op-ed published in The Hill on Monday writes that the judicial Code of Conduct is very clear regarding Ginsburg’s anti-Trump statements and her need to recuse herself in the travel ban case.

The code states that a judge should not “publicly endorse or oppose a candidate for public office.”

The code further states that “[a] judge … should act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.”

Even the The New York Times rebuked Ginsburg after her series of anti-Trump remarks, stating that “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs to drop the political punditry and the name-calling.”

Clearly they knew then what could happen — and now is happening now.

A day later, Ginsburg issued a statement:

“On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised, and I regret making them. Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. In the future I will be more circumspect.”

Last fall liberal Harvard law professor Allen Dershowitz said that Ginsburg should recuse herself from all cases involving President Trump, given her past statements.

And Ginsberg’s stated opinions have take on new importance, as the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals just blocked Trump’s travel ban executive order again, citing Trump’s own tweets from 2016 and currently — calling them “pertinent, official records.”

Surely Ginsberg’s biased statements render her incapable of an objective opinion in this matter.

Jarrett concludes his op-ed, “The noble traditions of the Supreme Court will be compromised should Ruth Bader Ginsburg decide she is above the law and beyond the scruples it demands.”

    They don’t have the authority to block his order.

      that’s what is so maddening about this whole thing. He has the authority to ban anyone from entering the country and the courts do not have the authority to overrule it.

        Other POTUS have! I guess because it’s Trump this time, that makes it illegal or something…

    The FKN LIBS NEVER recuse themselves from anything! But if a Republican farts they expect them to recuse themselves!

    • Ferrari fan

      that’s because farts are offensive and can send people running for safe spaces lol

  • kikz2

    RECUSE!….. she can go sit in the corner in her little dissent ruffle. she should be kvetching over her corned beef in some Miami deli……………..

  • Amy Larchuk

    The world is upside down when I find myself agreeing with Alan Dershowitz.

  • yerbullshit

    she should retire. She’s not going to last out his 1st 4 year term, let alone the 2nd.

  • CraxyD

    Something about the ‘wise Latina’ and the Obamacare decision comes to mind

  • heidisatwork

    but she won’t…because guess what? There is no one to tell her she has to. It’s up to her to recuse herself. There is no higher court to complain to. She needs to just retire already. She sleeps through half the hearings anyway.

  • DeeLee

    If things Trump said during the campaign can be used against him (as in the travel ban) then things Ginsberg said during the campaign ABOUT Trump should be used against her. Too bad she can’t be forced to step down.

  • 好几年没用过博客了,支持下!

  • Charlie Victor Alpha

    She should recuse herself not just from any court case involving the POTUS, she should recuse herself from the the SCOTUS altogether. She has proven herself not worthy of her judgeship, other federal employees would lose their jobs for some of the public comments she has made.

  • It’s Mr. Covfefe to you!

    Absolutely

  • RUREADING

    I would be happy for Justice Ginsberg to ‘be more circumspect in the future’; however we are talking about the past comments and the past executive orders……and since, in an unprecedented move, Mr. Trump’s words, as a Presidential candidate, have been used as a basis for the denial of this executive order…….then I guess that Justice Ginsberg should also be recuse herself on the basis of her prejudicial remarks.
