RBG: Kavanaugh Hearings ‘Highly Partisan’

September 14, 2018

Speaking at George Washington University Law School Wednesday, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg lamented that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s recent confirmation hearing has become a “highly partisan show.”

Contrasting last week’s hearings with her own in 1993, Ginsburg called the partisan grandstanding of Democrats “wrong” and expressed a desire to return a spirit of collegiality to the process.

“The way it was was right. The way it is is wrong,” she said to applause. “The atmosphere in ’93 was truly bipartisan. . . That’s the way it should be, instead of what it’s become, which is a highly partisan show.”
