It is common practice for U.S. Supreme Court justices to refrain from speaking about legal matters that have yet to come before the court — but that didn’t stop Ruth Bader Ginsburg from dropping a bombshell about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
During a BBC interview with Ginsburg, the host discussed McConnell’s recent statement that President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Senate was a “foregone conclusion.” Ginsburg took the bait and revealed her true colors. “Well if a judge said that, a judge would be disqualified from sitting on the case,” Ginsburg replied.
Her clear implication is that only unbiased senators should be part of the impeachment trial.
But Ginsburg’s logic is flawed in a massive way. She overlooks that the entire impeachment process, from beginning to end, is the result of the bias of a left-wing, anti-Trump political conspiracy.
If you don’t believe that, then remember this: despite the fact that the impeachment was the No. 1 headline on almost every news channel for months, the Democrats could not pull together enough evidence to convince even a single Republican to vote for impeachment.
That’s right. Not a single GOP member of the House could be convinced to vote for the impeachment. Instead, the entire charade was so biased that a Democrat House member left his party and joined the GOP.
If Justice Ginsburg is really concerned with bias, she might want to point her focus at the Democrats in the House.
