Ginsburg Admits Historic First for Female Law Clerks Was Thanks to Kavanaugh

H/T Western Journal.

Ruth Buzzi(Bader)Ginsburg better be careful of complimenting Brett Kavanaugh she will be ostracized by her leftist admirers.

 

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave a helping of deserved — and possibly unexpected — praise last week to the high court’s newest member, Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s second appointee to the Supreme Court, followed through on a particularly important promise he made during the blistering confirmation hearings he endured in the face of accusations of sexual misconduct and relentless attacks by a majority of the mainstream media.

The promise was his commitment to hire an all-female crew of law clerks, which he successfully did

According to The Hill, Ginsburg touted the judge’s move in remarks Friday at a judge’s conference in New York.

“Justice Kavanaugh made history by bringing on board an all-female law clerk crew. Thanks to his selections, the court has this term, for the first time ever, more women than men serving as law clerks,” she said.

Naturally, you didn’t hear much about this announcement from the mainstream media.

Ginsburg also pointed out that there’s still room for improvement, citing a lack of female attorneys out of the total number of attorneys who presented oral arguments to the court during the past term.

Only about 21 percent of the attorneys presenting oral argument this term were female; of the thirty-four attorneys who appeared more than once, only six were women,” Ginsburg said.

As reported by The New York Times in October, Kavanaugh hired four female law clerks, which was specifically what he promised to do last year if he were confirmed.

Only one of the clerks, Kim Jackson, had previously worked for Kavanaugh before his appointment. The others mostly worked for Republican-appointed appeals court judges.

In October 2018, Kavanaugh appeared before a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to answer accusations about an alleged sexual assault in the early 1980s ago that riveted the entire country. His accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, also testified and was overwhelmingly defended and protected by most of the liberal-leaning news media, as well as Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

They painted Kavanaugh — who had a flawless record with no allegations of any kind of misconduct in his long career, let alone that of a sexual nature — as a total monster.

Kavanaugh held steady in defending his reputation, repeatedly denying the accusations.

Even worse for Blasey-Ford’s case was the fact that her story changed several times during the debacle. She famously identified several people who could back her story — which was from decades ago — but none of them confirmed her version of the alleged events.

Eventually, with the vote of one Senate Democrat — Joe Manchin of West Virginia — Kavanaugh was confirmed to the court by a vote of 50-48.

Kavanaugh’s efforts to boost female representation among  Supreme Court clerks prove that he follows through on promises and that he’s not the monster that the liberal mainstream media and Democrats made him out to be.

Though it’s rare that conservatives can write anything positive about Ginsburg, given her history of left-leaning opinions, it’s beyond refreshing to see her put politics aside and give credit where credit is due.
