Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is facing calls to safe herself from the high court’s deliberations of President Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban order, given her stated animus toward the chief executive.
Monday, June 12 is the due date set by the Supreme Court for submitting responses of those who are against the travel ban.
The Trump administration asked for accelerate proceedings in the case, meaning a ruling to lift or keep in place a 4th Circuit order banning implementation of the order that apparently will happen soon.
Ginsburg has made it clear that she is against Trump’s presidential candidacy by discrediting him in public on number of occasions last summer.
“He is a faker. He has no consistency about him,” she stated for 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?”
The Associated Press asked her how the Supreme Court can be affected by a Trump presidency, she answered: “I don’t want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs.”
Ginsburg in an interview for The New York Times she said: “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 said that the possibility that Trump could be president reminded her of something her late husband used to say: “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”
Gregg Jarrett wrote for Fox News 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.”
In addition, attorney David Weisberg
Additionally, attorney David Weisberg in an op-ed article for The Hill on Monday said that the judicial Code of Conduct is distinct concerning Ginsburg’s anti-Trump statements and her need to recuse herself in the travel ban case.
The code says that a judge should not “publicly endorse or oppose a candidate for public office.”
The code also says that “[a] judge … should act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.”
Following her attacks on Trump The New York Times on July 13, issued a statement saying: “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs to drop the political punditry and the name-calling.”
A day later, Ginsburg responded:
“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.”
Because of her statements made against Trump she should excuse herself from all the cases involving President Trump.
Jarrett ended 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.”
