According to Western Journalism, a famous Justice of the Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg gets advice from all sides to withdraw herself from the high court’s deliberations of President Trump’s temporary travel ban order, because of her prejudice towards the President.
Justice Bader Ginsburg has been known to be against President Trump, far back when he was merely a candidate for a president.
She spoke to CNN, last July stating:
“He is a faker. He has no consistency about him. 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?”
A journalist from The Associated Press asked her a question:
“How the Supreme Court might be affected by a Trump presidency?”
Her answer was:
“I do not want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs.”
A couple of days after that, she also had an interview for The New York Times, in wich Bader Ginsburg stated:
“I can not imagine what this place would be – I can not imagine what the country would be – with Donald Trump as our president. Now it is the time for us to move to New Zealand.”
According to Gregg Jarret, the federal law implies that any judge should withdraw himself from any process in which his unprejudiced nature may be questioned. He might likewise exclude himself, where a judge has personal bias or prejudice concerning a party.
Popular lawyer David Weisberg wrote for the Hill, the judicial Code of Conduct is absolutely clear in a case about Justice Ginsburg’s words against Trump and her requisite to free herself from the travel ban subject. As indicated by the code, the judge is not allowed to publicly support or oppose a candidate for public service. Likewise, a job of a judge is to promote trust in the integrity and unprejudiced nature of the judiciary.
Ginsburg made an announcement on Tuesday, in which she said:
“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.”
