She Wasn’t ALL Bad… She had Her Moments Of Clarity
Footage from an interview with NPR shows the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg denouncing the Democrats’ push to stack the Supreme Court of the United States.
The video shows Ginsberg being asked about the number of justices on SCOTUS and she said, “There is no fixed number in the Constitution. So this court has had as few as five, as many as ten. Nine seems to be a good number, and it’s been that way for a long time.”
She added, “I have heard there are some on the Democrat side who would like to increase the number of judges.” She mentioned that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s wanted to stack SCOTUS, and she made clear she thought “it was a bad idea.”
Ginsberg addressed the problem of the court appearing partisan, then said, “If anything would make the court appear partisan, it would be…one side saying, ‘When we’re in power, it was only to enlarge the number of justices so we would have more people vote the way we wanted them to.’”
