Amy Coney Barrett set for Day 2 of confirmation hearing
"The Senate Judiciary Committee returns this morning for day two of Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. On the first day. Yesterday, we heard opening statements from members of the committee. Republicans made the case for Barrett's confirmation. Here's Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham. There's nothing unconstitutional about this process. This is a vacancy that's occurred there tragic loss of a great woman. And we're going to feel that they could see with another great woman. Democrats, meanwhile, said they're Republican colleagues are rushing this effort, and they tried to paint Barrett as a threat to the affordable care act. Now today, members will get their chance to ask her questions directly. We've got NPR Congressional reporter client great solace with us this morning. Hi, Claudia. Hi, Rachel. So what did each party the members of the committee Democrats and Republicans? What did they try to accomplish in the first day hearings yesterday? This was an opportunity for senators to frame her nomination. They did most of the talking. After all, Republicans painted bared as a worthy successor to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but in the mold of barrettes mentor and that's the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Democrats underscored the rush to confirm Barrett in the midst of a pandemic. Remember Two of the GOP members tested positive for the illness this month, and one Mike Lee of Utah, showed up yesterday, less than two weeks after his diagnosis. He also showcased what at what's at stake. Senator Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, who also sits on the committee dialed in to participate. Let's take a listen By replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with someone who will undo her legacy. President Trump is attempting to roll that Americans rides the decades to come. So Democrats highlighted concerns that barrettes nomination is being rushed so she could be seated in time if there's a dispute tied to the presidential election and to rule on an affordable care act case that will come before the court next month. So they shared worries that she could limit the A or abortion rights tied to the landmark case. Roe v. Wade. Republicans, meanwhile, tried to portray Democrats is anti Catholic, even though not one raised the religious belief issue right so yesterday was all about opening statements, and Barrett herself gave her statement what we learned for that. She said. Although she was nominated to succeed Ginsberg, no one could ever take her place. She said she closely followed Scalia's judicial philosophy. She clerked for him. Let's take a listen. His judicial philosophy was straightforward. A judge must apply the law as it is written. Not as she wishes it worked. Sometimes that approach met reaching results that he did not like. But as he put it in one of his best known opinions, that is what it means to say that we have a government of laws and not of men. She also noted that the courts have a vital responsibility to enforce the rule of law, but that policy decisions are better left to the legislative branch. So today, the official questioning begins, right and presumably, we're going to hear a lot of what we heard yesterday on the affordable care act, but in the form of questions to Judge Barrett, yes, members will question Barrett on our position on a lot of these key issues such as health care, an abortion rights. Each senator will get 30 minutes to question Barrett. So with 22 members, this could prove to be a much longer day. Republicans will use this to highlight her conservative judicial record. While Democrats will grill Barrett on conflicts of interest and how she'd rule on future cases will press her again recused herself in some of these instances, such as the day or if there's a dispute with the election, But as she's done during private calls with Democrats, you'll likely declined to make such commitments or share how she might rule on these issues

"Lessons on Friday afternoons now and every week it's a mad scramble to wrap up my work, grab his racket bottle and sneakers and get both kids out the door. Then back home an hour later for Chabad, dinner. So tennis will be on our minds. My daughter Rose is itching to play with her brother and when she's old enough, we'll give tennis a try. In New Jersey, where we live Ruth Bader Ginsburg happened to play a small role in making sure rose can play tennis one of the many stories about our legacy. This week included one by New York Times sports writer Andrew Kay. He tracked down Abby. Selden of Cape Cod. Massachusetts. Who at the age of fifteen nineteen seventy-two sued officials with the State of New Jersey and her high school in Teaneck because there was no tennis for girls no girls team not co ED team. No tennis girls. When her family contacted the ACO, you the organization connected her with a young rutgers law professor and volunteer who had just co founded the ACLU's women's Rights Project Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She had a colleague represented the family in a lawsuit charging depth. The rules barring abby and other girls from competing alongside boys violated the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment. Over time the State of New Jersey agreed to allow girls to try out for boys, teams, and the lawsuit was dropped doors across the state swung open for young female athletes. But sadly, things didn't get easier for abby. She joined the team just as she had hoped to. But the boys were cruel and faced no consequences for that cruelty during a team workout. One of them caused her to tumble down a flight of stairs leaving her bruised and unwilling to go back. It didn't stop her from playing. She fought for and won a scholarship to Syracuse and became a certified tennis pro at age twenty, one as sixty, four with two titanium knees she still plays today. Now, what struck me about Abbie's recollection is that she's pretty sure she and RPG never met in person they shared four long phone conversations and even though she only remembers bits and pieces what she does remember is the encouragement and the reassurance from the kind soft spoken woman on the other end of the line who was fighting for her. Now Max's started first grade and his teacher sends several emails a day to communicate with the students and their parents. The tagline on those emails is the famous Maya Angelou.

"And I think that she brought that perspective to the bench and the same way that she brought that email expected to the bench often as one of the few. Non Christian persons on the court. So in your opinion, why did she become such a phenomenon such an icon for women across generations in her octogenarian years when she was in her eighties was her was it the circumstances was a mixture of both is pretty remarkable. I think that in the seventies obviously she was recognized as sort of the Thurgood. Marshall. Of the Gender Movement and then she got to the court and she was quieter when she was on the court in the earlier years because she was the most junior justice and the second most junior justice after doses. Brier and junior justices get the big opinions right? It took a while I clerked for her obviously, it was amazing a corporate justice Ginsburg but it wasn't like clerking for Madonna way would be clerking for her right. Now it was an extraordinary to see this. This sort of star power emerged around her and her becoming an icon for little girls and sort of hard to piece together how it happened I. do think part of it was those dissents around two, thousand, seven, two, thousand, eight, two, thousand, nine when she was there alone she started. Really speaking very loudly again on gender and I think there was no one on the court who's doing that gender equality has always been there. It's always been a hugely important part of our constitutional development, but it's not the kind of thing that people are talking about every day when it comes to the Supreme Court guests, we're talking about abortion a lot in the law, but she's talking about all different kinds of gender equality discrimination in the workplace right discrimination in subsurface of little girls, and of course, you know issues involving reproductive choice i. Think her voice gets ladder people start noticing her again, and the sort of next generation starts to pay attention, and then this very famous descend from the voting rights case happens and this young woman makes me of her and it goes viral. It's just sort of exploded into something where yesterday standing vigil at the court there were so many little girls of all races a dressed up like her holding signs with her famous quotes that gender equality I. Really just an extraordinary thing to see. Do you mind sharing your last encounter was with Justice Ginsburg? The last will I you know she's an amazing letter writer and email responder and so i..

"She wanted men and women to be treated exactly the same, and that's why part of strategy in the nineteen seventies a very winning strategy was to use mail plaintiffs not female plaintiffs who were in unusual gender roles for the time like a father who wanted to stay home with his kids and to argue that benefits that a women would get during the same circumstances he should get. To it was all about her vision of equality and also I think in retrospect really about her vision of the American family. So many of these and the workplace, right? So many of these cases were about men performing counter gender stereotype role supporting women in their jobs and is idealization of her vision of what a Truly Eagles Society of men and women as parents partners could look like. So. Can you talk a little bit about how Judaism shaped Justice Ginsburg's judicial life where her personal life justice Ginsburg has this great line that she used in most virtuous speeches and it goes like this. I am a judge born raised and proud of being a Jew. The demand for justice runs through the entirety of the Jewish tradition I hope by years on. The bench on the court I will have the strength and the courage to remain constant in the service of that demand and is a beautiful line and she said it over and over and over again an awesome began her speeches like that and I think it says a lot. She was not incredibly observant but she was incredibly culturally and intellectually Jewish you know. As a young child, she went to Jewish camp. She wrote this great sas teenager about the Holocaust recently been resurfaced, which widely known that she was sort of disillusioned when her mother died on the eve of her high school graduation and she wasn't counted for the million but apart from that sort of the Jewish values both debate but of justice sort of. Rang through everything she did she had on her wall for turned off. You know the famous line justice, Justice Sal you pursue so that you made thrive she used that line everywhere. She had a on her door that was given to her by a former law clerk coin to the Shalom at school for Girls Orthodox Girl School in Brooklyn and the. Jewish values of debate of justice. A protecting outsiders were incredibly important her she often said that she thought that being Jewish, gave her something of an outsider's perspective G. experienced some aspects of discrimination as a young woman as a Jewish woman there's a story about I not. I have not heard this injustice first hand, but I read it in other places that at. Cornell and college. The Jewish girls were grouped together in one part of the dorm. Those early experiences in her life gave her an appreciation for being an outsider of course, together with her many experiences biggest discriminated against a woman I think she carried them with her and the obligation to make society or fair and more just throughout she also wrote some important opinions. That were about religion. So I do think some of the religious freedom cases that she was on the opposing side of you know maybe not might not have appeal to all Jewish people but she shrove for vision of religious neutrality. There was a case last year called American Legion that involved a very large cross on a piece of public property and justice. GINSBURG. wrote a dissent for herself and Justice Soda My your very, very strong dissent in which she said `I maintaining a piece cross on the public. Highway this town elevates Christianity over other fates religion over non religion, and she emphasized that the cross although it seemed like a neutral symbol for a town to the other justices she said the cross is not neutral at all..

"What they modeled for the world is just extraordinary. One is a story that well known after Butchers Gore the very difficult she thousand election case in which convert lost right her. Opinion, not the winning opinion justice that had been working around the clock days on it. So it's well known that Justice Scalia came down after the opinion came out to check on her zander home to take a bat and get something to eat that they. He was carrying her and they were caring for each other during that time. There's another great story that was retold recently by Justice Scalia Son. So if I get it wrong but the. Story said something like this, that another well-known federal judge was visiting Justice Scalia one day and saw some roses and his office and asked if they were for his wife Justice Scalia said no for ruth it's her birthday. The judge said how many votes have all those years of Roses Justice Ginsburg bought you and Justice Scalia said something's are much more important than votes but I think it really encapsulates how they felt about each other. Back, they travelled together. They stay modeled this way of disagreement but friendship that the country needs so much right now, I was GonNa say we re bottle that and distributed in Washington something about the court I, think the court has a couple of really wonderful features. One is sort of the new term and the break the sort of like this fresh start you know and I think that helps the new generations of law clerks coming. Every year. I think, contribute to that you get this fresh start every July where I difficult to the last term is or maybe you had to start over and I think that's helped ball. But I also think that the justices know how precious institution EST and they do what they can't guard it and its integrity part of that is their collegiality, the which they treat one another. So I also found it interesting just kind of going back to her. Opinions and her coach you didn't really like the term women's rights she talked about equality equal protection demanded my both men and women that was her big innovation. So in the nineteen seventies, there were sort of the split and the women's rights movement and thinking about whether women should get different treatment because of being women or exactly the same and Justice Ginsburg did not like what she called pedestal treatment she uses term full and equal citizenship stature..

"She was this woman that was incredibly tough I. I think the toughest Justice on the court and yet every once in a while she would say herself, she turned into a Jewish bubby. Well. Now, you open your column in The New York Times with a line from one of her last world arguments on a case about access to contraception under the affordable care act the authored the dissent I believe July. And in that descent she said it left women to fend for themselves. Did she influence your specialty in health law? In any way? I had an interest in Halfa before I got to the Supreme Court because my own mother passed away of cancer when I was in school and just his conversion I did not talk that much about how actually I see those cases. The ACA cases are very important I specialize in that and my daily life. I see her role in that case, really Bush bigger than the ACA case I. See that her in that case as a gender equality case and the last one in a steady stream of cases in which she's relentlessly thinking out how seemingly neutral things discriminate against a deeply affect the lives of women and that contraception case, which was an intersection of religious freedom law and contraception I think really simple is that he or she has gotten a lot of attention of course for her dissenting opinions which ones do you believe did indeed have the most impact in terms of shaping society her censor incredibly famous I mean the one that made her really famous was her voting. Rights Act Dissenting Shelby County, and that's the one that earned her the moniker notorious R. G. Objecting to the Supreme Court temp took curtail the voting rights X. Protections. I actually am really drawn to some of the earlier dissents particularly during the time when she was the only female justice sitting on the court I think that she issues really powerful to sense that made her voice for gender equality even louder on the court she was obviously this pathmark gang trailblazer in the nineteen seventies in her gender equality cases, and then she got to the court and she was a junior justice and she wrote a lot of really great opinions and short one very important majority opinion. VM I about same sex public education that military institute. But you know she had an had some major gender opinions until around that time and she found herself sitting there by herself.

Coney barrett She seems to be the odds on favourite so far when you're watching coverage of this I don't know a lot about her I know that she was questioned Quite extensively based on her religion Whenever she was appointed to the position. She's in now by president trump and i felt like that was completely unconstitutional I think some people in congress need to go back and reread the constitution. And then know the loss that they're They sworn to uphold. But regardless you know over the next few days i would not be surprised to see amy conybeare get the nod from president trump and then moved to the senate judiciary hearings to her confirmation underway mitch. Mcconnell has already gone on record saying he would move a nomination to a vote. So i believe this will happen. Very quickly I know that. I i don't expect to see nomination this weekend So that's why i was. I wanted to give the weekend out of respect to the ginsburg family and to root peter. Ginsburg are for her lifetime of service but we will likely see a nomination sometime this week. with confirmation hearing starting likely before the presidential debates pro even have the first presidential debate on september twenty ninth. I fully believe that's how quickly this will move and so very possibly For christmas this year we might be getting a new supreme court justice and I'm just gonna go on record as saying by christmas or for christmas. In december There will be a new supreme court justice being sworn in To replace ruth bader ginsburg who that is remains to be seen Odds on favourite. Though is amy coney barrett so our gb my be replaced by acb so that could be it. But that's this episode. I wanted to go on record as to what i thought the outcome of this will be. I do believe it's going to move very very quickly. i don't think november third and whoever gets elected Is is going to impact this decision whatsoever. Even let's say. Joe biden wins the election. President trump still has up until january twenty to make that nomination and get confirmed so it's gonna be political fodder for the left and right absolutely it's gonna be a talking point it's going to be discussed ad nauseam But at the end of the day. I do think this is a decision that president trump is gonna make. It's going to be a nomination that he makes. It's going to be a nomination and mitch. Mcconnell will move forward to a vote and at that point we will see. I do believe that whoever is nominated will be confirmed. Especially if it is amy coney barrett i the things that i've read so far today Are all good things very constitutional in her decisions that she's made so far so that makes me feel good. I'm confident that she would be just as good as cavenaugh. Gorsuch have been so But a the key thing is that she is going to be complete polar opposite of who and what ruth bader ginsburg stood for so it is going to be a dynamic shift in the court itself so huge huge political coming with this and It's definitely gonna be fun to watch so that's gonna be it for this show. I do want to say again I don't wanna use this as a be respectful A person has has died A very iconic and historic person Who served our government selfishness selflessly and They did so with grace and elegance and just beautifully written decisions and descent so For me that means a lot to me and again her example of friendship beyond politics regardless of where your politics are. I think an example that all of us should be living by and so with that. I want to express my deepest condolences to the ginsburg family as their grieving. A loss of their matriarch and Yeah i wish nothing but the best for your families and forward and I am praying for you all and as always i wanna thank you viewers i for watching episode and listening into my opinion on this If you haven't already please remember to subscribe to the show and give a like or thumbs up on whatever platform you are listening or viewing this episode It does help me out a lot and please be sure to share with friends and family and co workers and you know anybody that you think might be interested in the show We continue to grow steady pace.

"Chuck schumer obviously making the decision in hoping that president trump will be replaced in november that he will lose the election and that There will be joe biden administration that would get to nominate replacement I know it has been reported in a us a known. I'm sorry it's not. usa. Today it's an npr article. Where i will link to this as well as an npr article where as ruth bader ginsburg was starting to decline. She had recorded some requests and one of those requests that she not be replaced until a new president. you know again being hopefully that it would be a joe biden administration got to choose a replacement democratic replacement at that so a lot of people who are now There is a you know on the steps of the court as memorial. That's being built in a lot of the signs. They respect her wishes. And that's what they're referring to. Is that audio recording where she expressed her desire to not be replaced until after the presidential election on fox. News this morning Andrew napolitano judge age napolitano discussed potential scenarios in regards to potential nomination for a replacement that was on fox news. This morning and critically important nomination would be in regards to several key. Voter issues such as The aca or more commonly known as obamacare Second amendment in of course definitely roe v wade. I'm gonna play the clip for you and then come back on the other side and discuss it a little bit further. So here is judging. Apollo judge napolitano fox news this morning. I'll be back on the other side. You know judge. Let's say the president chooses someone Someone very soon. He's already indicated that he's gonna move on this Mitch mcconnell said he's going to act on this and that all the others who are raising concerns in the republican party that maybe they talk less to the media and keep their powder dry but what if we get to election day. We still haven't decided on this then. You're into a lame duck session. I know there have been nominees approved and one or two not approved during such sessions but it gets weird. So how do you think this plays out. Well if donald trump is reelected. I don't think it matters if he nominates someone in the lame duck session. If joe biden is elected and president trump nominate somebody in the lame duck session. You'll see extraordinary pressure to prevent this vote from from coming to pass trump's a tough guy do whatever he wants to do whether it's for his reelection bid or because he really believes this person whoever she or he may be off to be on the court. But as chad said the confirmation hearings for then judge now justice cavenaugh will probably pale compared to what we can expect this time around because this is a game. Changer ruth bader ginsburg is a was a liberal progressive democrat from the liberal wing of the democratic party. If you know what i mean. President trump is going to appoint someone who will be her polar opposite that will significantly and substantially changed the outcome of five to four votes on hot button issues like obamacare second amendment and abortion. So again was judge napolitano on fox news this morning. I think he's absolutely correct. I think Whomever president trump will nominate would forever change the dynamic of the supreme court indefinitely. Move it to a more constitutionally sound institution. In my opinion. I think that with the to been able to have in you'll gorsuch and brett kavanagh that getting a third nomination and supreme court justice in the court would definitely solidify more conservative judicial moving forward which i am very much in favor of which was actually one of the driving reasons behind the two thousand sixteen election of president trump Everybody knew on the conservative side that there was a supreme court seat at least one if not two potentially three that that president would ultimately get to decide and so that was the reason why i believe a lot of voters came out because they knew presidents come and go every four years but the supreme court. That is a lifetime appointment as everybody knows. And it is vitally critical that we have people there that are making decisions based on the constitution and the rule of law. We want as conservatives. We want that to dictate what is right and wrong. And how we adjudicate issues here in the united states. We don't want a proliferates feelings. That are in constant flux to rule the day we want fact we want law we want the constitution to dictate right and wrong so i find interesting In judge napolitano's absolutely right. It will be historic change to the court should trump people to get his nomination not only nominated but through the confirmation process as well and you know it is going to be a show for those of us who can't get enough of politics and for us. It is a blood sport. Youth thought the confirmation of justice. Cavanaugh was ruthless. You've seen nothing yet. should president trump making nomination this week which i believe he will and that he should and they are able to get confirmed regardless of what happens on november third very historic moment and The left are going to pull out all the stops in order to try and prevent that from happening. But it's not only democrats. Senator susan collins of maine who's a republican and also senator lisa mccaskey's republican of alaska They both have expressed their objection to the idea of possibly voting on a replacement for the supreme court before the election They both expressed that in new york. Times article published yesterday which i will link in the description as well So i found that interesting that they are already coming out. You know as well as saying they likely would not now keep in mind if they lose three republican votes. I believe it's three If they lose two republicans. And we've already down to their able to convince another one looking You know certain individuals. We would a mitt romney being one of them potentially have to go to a split decision and where The vice president would make the final decision on that unless it shifted to where more republicans decided not to vote in stained from that which would be a problem. i hope that the republicans pulled together and unanimous unanimously. Vote to confirm a supreme court justice That is nominated by president trump.

I. I. My my brain is Kinda stuck on you talking about this woman who you knew well, but who was also illegal giant as the person you want to be I mean that's Really saying something. Well I I remember As I wrote in an op Ed I recently did that I was in my twenties I was. Very, young lawyer we had Students at Yale Law School put together a women a lot of course it was one of the first women in the law courses and the constitutional part of that we've been in the course was really being framed by the ACL US women's rights project. In other words, we're learning about what Ruth Bader Ginsburg was doing to litigate to break down. People don't re recall in the seventies. The law embodied discrimination against women. There were rules that women could do X. or Y. Women couldn't. Serve on juries women women couldn't be executors of wheels. If there was a man was contesting in the law embodied discrimination against women in very fundamental and explicit ways, and she was sort of steadfastly knocking them down and they would be a women in the law conference where all of us twenty somethings would go and and she would be the keynote speaker. And I was. Blown away she's a very soft spoken speaker and but what what the message had clarity to it, which has never dimmed an clarity to the relationship between legal discrimination and societal discrimination concern about the way women were treated and all aspects of life. Sort of breaking down what the stereotypes where you know women as mother. As child rear and men not so much and she was radically in that vision I. Love to quote a something out of her first textbook where she. talked. About how a gender discrimination traps, not just women but men. In sex roles, you know provider on the one hand childcare person on the other. And as the mother of sons. I I am thrilled that can envision being caregivers. In ways that my father certainly. couldn't envision so I listened to her and I wanted to be her..

You knew Ruth Bader Ginsburg for decades and I'm sorry for your loss and I wanted to ask you where were you when you heard the news and what was your first thought? Well, I was at home and I heard the news and very sad. Obviously she had fought a number of different cancers for quite a long time and had a lot of health issues the last few years but you was also someone when when people say she fought the diseases, she was a fighter and she did fight them and fought them very very well for a long time. You know she was a a private individual and an intensely public person especially in this moment. What is it like to grieve someone close to you with this private dimension, but also it all unfolding. So openly in public over the last few days. Well, it's something that I've been through before. Justice Scalia was a dear friend for. Over forty years and When when something happens publicly, there is a difficulty to keeping private what you're thinking and feeling, but it also goes with the territory knowing people who make a mark on the world make a mark on the country, make a mark on the law. And do you take pride in your friends? You Take Pride in what they've done and grieve privately as much as you can. I. Appreciate you spending some time talking about her with us today.

What they need to I was really saying, thank you for the update of the calendar that's trying to say so funny. right. So Ruth Baiter GINSBURG. On Friday, the news broke of her passing and phone alerts went off everywhere. Creek I you know we got a chance to obviously know some of the things that many of the things that she did. In history for equality. But that documentary that we all got to see notorious R. G. shed light on the individual human being that she really was. And you've got some of the highlights here. Just some of the highlights. especially if you didn't see that documentary, she was a champion of race and gender equality like you were just mentioning I recall her like a pioneering lawyer on women's equality civil rights. Hero I mean Louis goes on she graduated law school in Nineteen fifty nine when only three percent of lawyers were women. So that is kind of like sets the stage to like how she was. And in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, two, she became the first woman to receive a tenure on the Columbia Law Faculty which had never been done before, and then in the documentary I think we really got to see like her openness about her own life and how she allowed others to envision paths that combined rewarding work and also having that loving family and friendship time as well. If you remember her husband was the one that did all the cooking. At home and they had a phenomenal relationship and that was something beautiful about her as well as that she wasn't like this like workaholic that. Wasn't able to have a family and kids and all that. She was able to do it all and I thought that was that was really inspiring especially at that time the fifties and sixties, and especially now in one thousand, nine, hundred three is when Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the second woman to serve on the supreme. Court and she participated in landmark cases I mean this is really what cetera part. Covered issues ranging from women's rights to same sex marriage. But most recently is when she became a hero to this new generation and I would call her a pop culture icon. The Tories RPG was created she that she said that she didn't even see that coming either. But she liked it and Ruth Bader GINSBURG was the only Supreme Court justice in history. To be the face of a movement like this. So that's we're like books, clothing tattoos, coffee mugs like the coffee Mug that got you on your birthday. Like I have coffee mugs, copy edible tote bags with her face on them. She's the only Supreme Court justice in history never like really be an icon like that. So I just thought it was so good. And I love this quote from her fight for the things that you care about. But do it. In A Way That will lead others. To join you. Can. Finally reunite with her with her husband I you look at some of the things that she championed and you can't believe that it was that way that that was something that needs to be fixed. Right? I mean crazy some. Liked to have that like not even that foresight but also the tenacity and the passion to not stop until what she wanted was accomplished what you say she was not a workaholic quote but her work ethic was crazy insane. Her friends talk about how they used to go out to dinner with her or they go to the theater with her and if there was a slow moment in the conversation or a slow moment in the play, she take a flashlight out of her purse and she start reading briefs and memos for Work I. mean she was just saying. The the wattage in her brain was just a determination. That she possessed was unparalleled. I was watching last night the news, and this said it all to me. There was a nine year old little girl and she was out in front of the supreme. Court. Building and the news walked up and interviewed her and. She said you know. Ruth Ginsburg was a superhero wearing a robe instead of Cape. Yep. Really, really cute and I thought gosh that little girl can chills saying that it was just do is so simple. So so powerful to.

"justice ruth bader ginsburg" Discussed on Anderson Cooper 360
"It's just ratcheted up significantly. Yeah. No question about it, and the fight over the replacement will be something that we have not seen in some time. The question for the Republicans right now is, will they move on a nominee? How quickly will they move on a nominee and from what we can tell from talking to our sources moving on a nominee getting someone confirmed to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg before November will be difficult because just simply. Not as much time as it typically would take to get a nominee confirmed typically Anderson is about two to three months to get a nominee through the process, the paperwork, the FBI background checks, the confirmation hearings, and all the like that takes two to three months but there could be enough time to get some confirmed before the end of the year, and that's significant because on November third, of course, the election if the Republicans lose the. Control of the Senate if they lose the White House then there'll be a change of power in January will be a lame duck session of Congress that would occur from after the election until January the question is whether the Republicans would be willing and would they move on a nominee in that lame duck session. The question that we're hearing from Republicans tonight is whether or not they have the votes to move forward with someone if. They have the votes almost certainly they would move to confirm someone Mitch McConnell the Senate majority. Leader has made very clear that he wouldn't confirm any nominee any vacancy this year despite his position in two thousand sixteen. When he when he sat on President Obama's replacement for Antonin Scalia Merrick Garland he said let the voters decide in two thousand sixteen left vacant for almost a year from more than a year until the president trump's replacement came in. mccollum now says that that's different because it was a democratic a Democrat in the White House Republican Senate. Now there's a Republican Senate and a Republican White. House. So completely different situation. So he's willing to move, but he's only willing to move. If he has the votes, the question is will lose fewer than four Republican senators is a fifty three, forty Senate right now and already. Lisa. Murkowski. Of Alaska I said she's not WanNa move forward with someone. Before November Susan Collins of Maine also said the same thing collins has also indicated separately to the new. York Times she told them that she would not support nominee in a lame duck session of Congress if Joe, Biden were win the White House. So that means that the Republicans will have to determine whether they've already lost Collins in the lame duck session maybe Murkowski to will they be able to stem their defections to lose may no more than? One other senator. To ensure that, they could have fifty one senators to essentially confirmative mini at the moment. Anderson it's really a question of counting the votes will the conference be there will there be enough support to move forward because if there is almost certainly Mitch McConnell push ahead and that will cause this momentous fight because of course, could swing the court for generations, affect Americans, not just as though you're saying the the. Normally. It takes two to three months for an FBI background check and paperwork. You're telling me that if Republicans if this White House really didn't want it badly enough that they couldn't FAST-TRACK A. Confirmation process and it couldn't plus days that are left before the election they could and that would be harder to do and would put a lot of Republicans in a tough spot and it's not without precedent to move someone that quickly Ruth. Bader GINSBURG herself move quickly through the confirmation process. Of course that was a much different time than we're in right now. But that's that is from what I'm hearing a less likely scenario more likely is to see if someone could be confirmed in a lame duck session. But then that adds all those complications that I just mentioned Anderson at the end of the day are the votes there, and that's what Mitch McConnell is going to determine Montereau. Really Thank you very much Gloria Borger So much talk about. Your thoughts right now? Well I can I can get into the Byzantine politics and I will because there are some things I want to add to what to what Monica said, and he's described the situation perfectly. But let me just say that this is a Supreme Court justice that most people in this country feel that they know one way or another. This is an iconic woman who matters a lot to women women in my generation. Women of younger generation, a Supreme Court justice who had her story, her success, and the way she achieved it and the battles she fought for women mean a lot in this country. So you have the fight on one level in the Senate and I'll talk about that. But you also have another you have another Plainfield here and that is women in this country. This will one way or another mobilize women. This is an important She was an important person for women in this country. I mean women stand in awe of her achievement and she told according to Nina Totenberg, who probably knows her betty better than any other journalist she you know she said that she did not want to be replaced until the new Senate was installed I think those words might matter to some women if this is trying to get shoved through the United States Senate and let me talk about that for a moment because Mitch McConnell will say this is different from Merrick Garland and he sang this is because there's A Republican Senate and a Republican White House, and so he can play his kind of Byzantine Political Games here. Well, this is very different like maybe I can't do it right now but I'll do it in a lame-duck. Okay. What if the Congress changes hands in a lame duck and what if the Democrats take control of the Senate and and what if there is a new if there is a new president, I mean, these are these are things that the voters are going to have to look at it and say what is fair one other thing I want to point out to which my? Producer and Coldwell sent me which is great list of. Republicans on the Judiciary Committee who are actually up for reelection now. So you have the chairman Lindsey, Graham you have John Cornyn you have Ben Sasse Thom Tillis Joni Ernst talk races. These are going to be tough fights. What are these Republicans GonNa? Do they're going to fall in line? Behind Mitch McConnell may be but we just don't know in took a short break. We're GONNA have a lot more on the life and the legacy of Ruth Bader.
"justice ruth bader ginsburg" Discussed on Anderson Cooper 360
"Now Anderson but I suspect once he gets off in his briefed. that. He will probably talk to reporters if not on camera before getting on. Air Force One then on Air Force One in an off camera gaggle with reporters, we'll get some kind of reaction from the White House I think in short order Anderson there had been. Some headlines several I. Think it was a week or so ago about the president putting out. Other names of potential Supreme Court nominees. That's right and he he put out a number of senators named Ted, Cruz Josh, holly, Tom Cotton. I believe Tom Cotton almost immediately said that he would try to he would seek to strike down a roe versus wade or that it's time for Roe versus Wade to go a number of stars in the conservative movement from a legal standpoint. Also, on that list, there's been a you know a steady drumbeat of support for the president to nominate amy. Coney Barrett, her name was floated the last time around the president nominated Brad Kavanagh before that battle, royale up on Capitol Hill and we're told by sources that President Likes Amy CONYBEARE and that in that potentially, she's very high on that list. Obviously, that's all in theory. All of that discussion was happening in theory heading up until this moment Anderson and I think we are you know like we've seen just about in every other aspect of our lives in two thousand twenty, we are seeing something that is truly I use the word unprecedented because it feels like a cliche but just something extraordinary that the president would have the opportunity to fill three Supreme Court vacancies during his first term in office I mean obviously he would have a a massive effect on the court if he's if he's allowed and able to push through a peck.

Like five hundred. Yeah Yeah Anderson. She was somebody who was shaped by loss very early on she was someone who not only lost her mother but her sister her husband struggled with cancer when they were in law school and she would stay up all night taking care of him. She learned to get by on two hours of sleep long before her own cancer diagnosis. I mean, you could say that cancer was this shadow that haunted both her family and herself. And yet the fact that she really wanted to fulfill the dreams that her mother had for herself for her her mother had a dream of Education for herself. That was not realized she herself dreamed of. A life in the law life fighting for what was right and to have a profession in a very practical sense. and the kind of perseverance and tenacity that she showed throughout her life throughout cancer broken ribs repeated hospitalizations, the loss of her husband being the only woman on the court seeing the politicization of the courts seeing how jagged it moved to the right when President Bush was able to replace moderates on the court throughout all of its she really be fiance.

And, justice GINSBURG was honest to a fault and perhaps she was joking but to my knowledge, what she said was not true. She said she was hoping to be a better wife to her husband. The real reason that Justice Ginsburg was at Harvard law school is because she had a passion for the law she loved her work. It was one of the great loves of her life, the law. And she used the law as an instrument to expand rights and equality for people who have been written out of the original we the people. but she was just somebody who wholeheartedly devoted herself to that task and so no, she was not at Harvard Law School in order to make a better dinner conversation with her husband although they did have a wonderful relationship and she she loved Harvard Law School ended up going to Colombia where she graduated I think like first in her class or tied for first in her class. Yes she did. Yes. In fact when when she got to Columbia everybody. Sort of gulped and had been warned of her she, she joined the law review at two different Ivy League institutions which I believe broker record at the time. But despite that sterling achievement Anderson she was not able to find a job for the longest time. She said that there were three strikes against her she was a woman she was a mother and she was a Jew and it was in fact having so many doors slammed in her face that led her. To. The cause of gender equality she you know she might have ended up at a cushy law firm had she been given more chances and instead her own experience with discrimination both as a mother as a woman religious discrimination instead led her to think about how to broaden opportunities for greater range of people instead led her to figure out how to use the constitution to to make we the people in more than just an ideal more than just a broken promise. EARN. Thank you so much. I WanNa bring also Joan biskupic. Joan to talk about Ginsburg on the court and the role that she has played. In her time on the court. Yes Anderson it's been quite a transformation. She came on in Nineteen ninety-three as more of a centrist. That liberal. She had had a very moderate record on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals. But over time she became the left flank of this court especially in two thousand after two, thousand ten when justice. John Paul Stevens retired and she became the senior Liberal and was in charge of assigning. The that usually the dissents sometimes a majority opinions about usually descent and she really found her voice then. She actually became the notorious RPG after her two thousand thirteen dissent in the case known his Shelby County versus holder win the five justice conservative majority cutback on the nineteen sixty sixty, five voting rights act, and with each year she Duggan harder and harder on the left and frankly was more critical of President Donald Trump you probably remember in two, thousand sixteen when she ended up speaking out of school saying he such a faker is such an ego. She ended up retracting those statements that she had said to me in an interview, but she has remained pretty harsh against him and during the recent trump documents. At the Supreme Court, she noted that he still hadn't turned over his tax returns. So she's she only became more outspoken and moved more to the left a sort of personal transformation. And she really did not want to have president trump. Be President to to fill vacancy that she would leave..
"justice ruth bader ginsburg" Discussed on Anderson Cooper 360
"Jeff Toobin can you hear me? Pay We don't have been. A list check in with Sanjay. Gupta. Just to talk about the medical aspect of on this Sanjay. Pancreatic cancer is obviously an extremely difficult form. She has been through so much You know there were so many people pulling for her hoping she would she would go on for years. Yeah she's really dealt with a lot. Anderson I. Mean, you know you you go back to one, thousand, nine, hundred, nine. Twenty years ago she she twenty one years ago she was dealing with colon cancer at that time she was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer back in two thousand nine. So eleven years ago, and at that time I think the the thinking was that maybe she had been able to to really get through that and She was sort of disease free. In fact, you may remember January of this year Anderson she sort of made a announcement that she was cancer free. Two years ago before this yet another type of cancer lung cancer. So it's colon pancreatic cancer and then lung cancer but I think it was in May of this year Anderson you may remember. When she had this recurrence this this question of recurrence, and then again in July and at that point, she made it clear that she did have this recurrence she had tried medications like immunotherapy and really did not have a response to it. So at that point, had a procedure basically to open up some of the ducks that sometimes become affected by the sort of cancer. And was put on a therapy that you know doctors sort of Said was not not curative. This was not going to be a cancer that was going to be cured at that point. But she knows amazing. Anderson you remember she sort of she got through that therapy she got out of the hospital she was. Out and about again, she said that she would resume her duties. It's a tough therapy that she went through salon to go through for anybody obviously someone who's in their mid to late eighties even harder. But she was seemed to be doing. Okay. But I think at that point Anderson I think going back to July now was pretty clear that this cancer was not going to be something that was going to be effectively treated. It just didn't know how quickly spread. Douglas Brinkley is also join us. Doug your thoughts on on her passing? Well, it's an incredible loss to America. I think the per and when I teach her about her legacy and universities about being this women's activists. I mean she was extraordinary fighter for women's rights and you know Anderson Win a Bill Clinton selected or nobody thought you know she would be picked on in ninety three they were looking with with Byron Byron White was going to be retiring in in. The fall was would be brier nobody thought about Ginsburg Hillary Clinton knew all about Ruth Bader. Ginsburg she was so influenced by Hillary. Clinton she told her husband, President Bill Clinton really look at her she has something extraordinary and there's a funny story because Bill Clinton didn't want depressing yet. But so they told Ginsberg to come in on Sunday evening the White House would be kind of a tornado wear. Regular clothes almost be informal and there was Bill Clinton watching. Football all dressed in a suit and tie, and she was like in lounge closed US deeply embarrassed. But it took Bill Clinton about ten minutes to realize that. Hillary, Clinton was right that this was the winner and he went to bat for, and we have to remember when Bill Clinton picked Ruth Bader Ginsburg out there have been Republicans in the White House for the twelve prior years this type of a thing. Every year really fun by month. She is ask court justice grew into the legend we know in President Clinton told me not that long ago over the summer that when he had her once come to the Clinton Library in Arkansas they have so many people waiting fifty thousand fans did Arkansas. But they had a mover from the light presidential library to get a sports arena because of her popularity was so great. So we look at one some of Bill Clinton's. Great moves his president picking her Shirley was one of them. I would tonight, there's folks on this both the life that she lived her legacy and also obviously the political ramifications the judicial ramifications of this moving forward just in the next several weeks and months Hillary Clinton just tweeted quote justice, Ginsburg pave the way for so many women including me there will never be another white Kurt. Thank you are BG Denna Bash is standing by as well Dan just. Talk about what a lot of people tuning in right now, wondering what this means for the Supreme Court what this means for? Capitol Hill and a confirmation process and the. If you think that we have seen bitter. Partisanship a very divided You know frankly angry congress you ain't seen nothing yet, and that is because the this is So the crown jewel when it comes to what a president can do and what Congress can do that lasts a lifetime and that is to fill a supreme court vacancy especially. A vacancy as important when it comes to the balance of the bench. As better GINSBERG's. The fact that as motto was talking about earlier that it was four years ago. That Republican, a little more that Republicans who were also in charge of the Senate refused to allow even a hearing for then president. Obama's nominee Merrick garland because. Mitch McConnell said that the American people deserve a voice You would think that there will be some consistency and that that same majority leader Mitch McConnell would say, okay, we're so close to elect in election the American people deserve a voice, but that's not how it is going to work quickly how it is most likely going to work is that The Republican leadership they're gonNa try to do something in the short term if not in what is known as the lame duck sessions after the election, they're going to try to push this through. Anderson. when I say this a presidential nominee to replace her and the rules right now not to get into the nitty gritty but this matters a lot is they just need a simple majority and Republicans right now have that there's GonNa. Be a lot of fighting and I will just tell you real quick that it was not an accident that the Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer released are sent out a tweet saying something on the long along the lines of. The American people should have a voice in the selecting their next Supreme Court justice. He clearly intentionally took the the verbatim verbiage from Mitch McConnell for years ago to try to throw it back in his face, this is going to be a huge huge..
