Ruth Bader Ginsburg Credits Brett Kavanaugh With Increasing Number Of Female Supreme Court Clerks

Remember last summer when the left was positively freaking out about the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court?

They claimed that Kavanaugh was somehow bad news for women. Now he is proving them wrong and even the left’s favorite Supreme Court justice is giving him credit for it.

The Hill reports:

Ginsburg credits Kavanaugh for helping boost number of female Supreme Court clerks

Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave credit to her fellow Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh on Friday, touting the court’s newest member for boosting the number of female law clerks serving the court.

Ginsburg, in prepared remarks to a conference for judges in New York, noted that while women have made progress toward equal representation among the court’s clerks, there are areas where improvements are still needed.

“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, according to remarks released by the court.

“[But] women did not fare nearly as well as advocates,” Ginsburg continued. “Only about 21% of the attorneys presenting oral argument this Term were female; of the thirty-four attorneys who appeared more than once, only six were women.”

Meanwhile, Democrats still want their leadership to go after kavanaugh.

The Daily Beast reported:

In August of 2018, the National Archives denied a request from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for non-public records from Kavanaugh’s tenure as staff secretary in the Bush administration, citing a legal opinion from the Justice Department that these sorts of requests could only emanate from committee chairmen.

A lawyer for former President Bush released 42,000 pages of documents related to Kavanaugh’s tenure in that White House just before the hearings on Kavanaugh’s nomination were set to begin.

During his hearings, Kavanaugh did not disclose his personal view but said: “I understand the importance of the precedent set forth in Roe v. Wade. It has been reaffirmed many times over the past 45 years.”

But what was in the public record suggested that his position on Roe being settled law wasn’t firmly held. The New York Times reported in early September that he had written in a 2003 email: “I am not sure that all legal scholars refer to Roe as the settled law of the land.”

A recent poll conducted on behalf of the liberal group Take Back The Courts suggests that Democrats would be on solid ground in aggressively pursuing the Kavanaugh documents.

These people are not rational.

They want their own way and nothing else will do.
