Ginsburg Claps Back at Trump's Call for SCOTUS to Step Into the Impeachment Saga: He's 'Not a Lawyer'

Earlier this month, President Donald Trump tweeted that he thought the Democrats had absolutely no case to pursue impeachment. He wondered whether or not his administration could appeal to the Supreme Court to put an end to the partisan impeachment push.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made it very clear she disagreed with the president's assessment of the situation, saying he's "not a lawyer."

“He’s not law-trained,” Ginsburg said during a meeting with the Berggruen Institute in New York City, where she received their Prize for Philosophy and Culture. “But the truth is, the judiciary is a reactive institution. We don’t have a program, we don’t have an agenda. We react to what’s out there."

The award she received is typically given to philosophers, something she tried to draw a parallel with.

“I’m not a philosopher, but I do interpret a text,” she said as she accepted her award, WWD reported. “The text I interpret most often is the U.S. constitution; it is, indeed, a living constitution. Who would want to be governed by a dead one?”

According to CNN, the Supreme Court Justice said she hopes there are "good people on both sides of the aisle to say let's stop this dysfunction" and "work together for the good of the country." It wasn't clear if she was referencing the ongoing impeachment saga or not.
