RBG Blasts “Highly Partisan” Kavanaugh Hearings

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg reminisced about the good ol’ days of bipartisan, sensible confirmation hearings during a recent speech at George Washington University Law School. Ginsburg told her audience that “the way it was, was right. The way it is, is wrong.” Her remarks, however, are already being used by the rabid left to make their case against Kavanaugh even though Ginsburg spent a fair amount of time detailing how she was never asked any questions about her work for the ACLU or how Justice Antonin Scalia received a unanimous vote and similar respectful consideration. The Kavanaugh vote is already scheduled for Sept. 20 and is expected to be successful, albeit by a slim majority.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made her disapproval known regarding the “highly partisan show” that took place during confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh.
Speaking at the George Washington University Law School, Justice Ginsburg told students that “the way it was, was right. The way it is, is wrong.” She called the “atmosphere” of her 96-3 voted confirmation “truly bipartisan.”

“The vote on my confirmation was 96-3, even though I had spent about 10 years of my life litigating cases under the auspices of the ACLU,” she explained. “No senator asked me any questions — not about that.”

Ginsburg offered another example, in memory of the late Justice Anton Scalia: “Think of Justice Scalia, who’s certainly a known character in, what was it? 1986,” she said, continuing:

The vote was unanimous, every Democrat and every Republican voted for him. That’s the way it should be, instead of what it’s become, which is a highly partisan show. The Republicans move in lockstep, and so do the Democrats.
