Justice Ginsburg Does It Again, Without Consequence (July 20, 2016)

Two years ago Justice Ginsburg said she believed that America was ready for same-sex “marriage.” She made those statements prior to her deliberations on and vote to constitutionally mandate same-sex “marriage.”

Many complained that she should have recused herself from that case based on the Code of Judicial Conduct, but nothing happened. Now she’s made comments about Donald Trump and his campaign in violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct. As before, nothing will happen because what Court has jurisdiction over the Supreme Court justices?

Their lack of accountability is breathtaking, as is the fact that Congress will do nothing to try to alter the situation though they have the power to do so. Perhaps before voting on congressional candidates, it would be wise to find out where the candidates stand on reigning in our Supreme Court.
