Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is back in the news this week after sitting down for an interview with NPR's Morning Edition. She was asked about pledges made by 2020 Democrat presidential candidates to pack the Supreme Court and reacted with disdain for the idea.

"I think that was a bad idea when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried to pack the court," Ginsburg said. "You mentioned before the court appearing partisan. Well, if anything would make the court appear partisan it would be that. One side saying when we're in power we're going to enlarge the number of judges so we want to have more people who vote the way we want them to. So I am not at all in favor of that solution to what I see a temporary situation."

She added she believes nine Supreme Court Justices is a good number.

In addition, during a speech this week Ginsburg praised fellow Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. From National Review:

On Wednesday night, Ginsburg delivered a 30-minute speech looking back at the 2018 Supreme Court term and Stevens’s life, before participating in an hour-long question-and-answer session with Duke Law professor Neil Siegel, one of her former clerks. When Siegel asserted during the Q&A that “nominees for the Supreme Court are not chosen primarily anymore for independence, legal ability, [and] personal decency, and I wonder if that’s a loss for all of us,” Ginsburg immediately defended Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. “My two newest colleagues are very decent, very smart individuals,” she said.
