The Brett Kavanaugh confirmation fight divided Americans.
Conservatives were furious that the Democrats trotted out women to make false allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.
But one Judge told a story about Kavanaugh that will change everything you think.
Chief Justice Roberts spoke at the University of Minnesota Law School.
He addressed concerns that the court has become too politicized.
Roberts told a story about how the Justices shake hands before oral arguments.
He said despite the partisan brawl over the Kavanaugh confirmation all the Justices followed this custom.
The Daily Caller reports:
Chief Justice John Roberts spoke publicly for the first time Tuesday about Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s contentious ascension to the U.S. Supreme Court, vowing to protect the Court’s independence and impartiality.
Delivering remarks at the University of Minnesota Law School, Roberts opened by alluding to Kavanaugh’s confirmation. He noted that the justices shake hands with one another before entering the courtroom for oral argument or gathering for private conferences, in keeping with a tradition established by Chief Justice Melville Fuller, who led the Court from 1888 to 1910.
“It’s a small thing, perhaps, but it is a repeated reminder that, as our newest colleague put it, we do not sit on opposite sides of an aisle, we do not caucus in separate rooms, we do not serve one party or one interest, we serve one nation,” the chief said, referencing remarks Kavanaugh made during his ceremonial installation at the White House.
“I want to assure all of you that we will continue to do that,” Roberts added.
If anyone is to blame for the court being politicized it is the left.
Starting with the Robert Bork nomination, they turned the Supreme Court into a partisan brawl.
Ted Kennedy led the smear campaign against him.
That began a downward spiral that culminated with the Kavanaugh confirmation.
