In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg said that she’d like to overturn the 2008 Heller decision in which the court affirmed the individual right to keep and bear arms. She called it “a very bad decision” that could be overruled. Justice Ginsburg has previously said that without the need for a militia, the Second Amendment is “outdated” because “its function has become obsolete.”
Justice Ginsburg also made negative comments about Presidential candidate Donald Trump, saying, “I can’t imagine what the country would be—with Donald Trump as our President.” She added that the possibility brought to mind her late husband whom she said would opine: “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”
These comments would appear to fly in the face of the Code of Conduct for United States Judges. Canon 5 of the code reads:
Canon 5: A Judge Should Refrain from Political Activity
(A) General Prohibitions. A judge should not:
(1) act as a leader or hold any office in a political organization;
(2) make speeches for a political organization or candidate, or publicly endorse or oppose a candidate for public office
The negative comments and praise for a coming liberal ascendancy, certainly seemed like a public endorsement for crooked Clinton.
