Justice Ginsburg: The Senate Is ‘Destroying The United States’ Reputation… As A Beacon of Democracy’

Justice Ginsburg: The Senate Is ‘Destroying The United States’ Reputation… As A Beacon of Democracy’

..............................

At an event sponsored by the San Diego Association of Business Trial Lawyers on Friday, Ginsburg offered even stronger words of condemnation for our broken senate-confirmation process:

There were only three votes in opposition when she was confirmed to the court by the Senate, but in the past she has said that she doubts if in today’s more partisan political environment if she would be confirmed for the court.

She said Friday that she was hopeful that someday soon the partisan battles over court nominees will fade.

“I’m hoping there will be members of Congress who will say enough. We are destroying the United States’ reputation in the world as a beacon of democracy, and we should go back to the way it was, and the way it should be,” she said of the confirmation process.
