It's her right, but it's not really awesome though, it would be if there was any chance of risk, but this is Trump we're talking about.

Look, Trump is white, male, old, rich, conservative, christian, capitalistic and a republican. He stands for protecting borders, supporting the military, supporting the police and dealing with radical Islam.

Isn't it just so easy to trash the guy? You can't and wouldn't ever treat a woman, black, socialist or muslim the way he's been treated.

A link would have not gone amiss.

I loathe Trump but she is a supreme Court Justice and should keep her personal feelings out of the public.

If anything her statements will rile up the anti government nuts.

Hillary is the lesser of two evils in this terrible contest.

Oh how the states need a Roosevelt (either one will do) or an Esinhower right now.

Sorry about the missing link. Couldn't because of my iPhone.

the Notorius Biggie Ginsberg! Of course, she is the target U.S. Republicans like to point to when railing on about the need to elect that fraud/charlatan Trump... to stop Clinton from appointing yet another liberal judge to the current vacany!

in regards an earlier post... caught a segment on MSNBC tonight where a 'legal scholar' addressed the right of the "Supremes" to speak out directly... on any level; that only lower-court judges are mandated to stay apolitical by rule. It was quite telling to listen to examples from the past; particularly the most recent when the much profiled conservative Justice Scalia regularly associated with prominent conservative organizations/politicians... and certainly expressed his personal politics through media profiles/interviews, notwithstanding actual judicial rulings in themselves.

It was a mistake and plays into the "active judges" argument of the Conservatives. Members of the Supreme Court give their opinions through their decisions and written explanations of their decisions as presented by representatives of both sides.

Some might argue that when they are not wearing their judicial hats that they have a right to state an opinion. I disagree. No matter the hat, the brain it protects stays the same. Justice is supposed to be blind. Politics is certainly the opposite.

If she comes out as a Clinton supporter, then you know her brain is not working properly.

She does have her rights, but as a supreme court judge, she also has responsabilities. Trump says that her comments were embarrassing - true, they were also hypocritical.

"He is a faker," she said of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, going point by point, as if presenting a legal brief. "He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. ... How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that."

What about Hillary? Is she not a "faker"? Does she have any consistency whatsoever?, Ego?, Gotten away without turning over tax returns, how about deleting top secret emails? And the press, has the press let Trump off the hook more than Hillary? No chance! Loretta Lynch avoided 74 questions about Hillary yesterday and barely a word from the press - in fact, this made bigger headlines.

The left think she's some hero, I think she's just added to the lying and corruption that is the US democrat party.

no - it's Trump that refuses to release his tax returns! An extract from the, "Statement from Hillary Clinton on the Release of Her Federal Tax Returns":

Today, I’m releasing my own family’s tax returns from 2007 to 2014, adding those years to previous releases going back to 1977. Since 2007, we have paid $43,885,310 in federal taxes and made $14,959,450 in charitable contributions. We’ve also paid $13,625,777 in state and local income taxes. Last year, we paid an effective federal tax rate of 35.7 percent and a combined federal, state, and local effective rate of 45.8 percent. We contributed 10.8 percent of our income to charity. In 2013, the numbers were similar. We paid an effective federal tax rate of 35.4 percent and a combined rate of 44.6 percent, and donated 11.4 percent of our income to charity.

Yeah, i know! And Hillary who deleted emails.

if you, as you say, "knew"... that Clinton released her tax returns, why did you mention it, implying she hadn't? Where's your raised concern/issue with Trump refusing to release his tax returns?

as for those deleted emails, correct me if I'm wrong, but she didn't personally delete them and, more pointedly, they were recovered by the FBI and were included in the FBI investigation - yes... or no?

The Notorious RBG admits that she screwed up by making comments about Trump:

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg apologized Thursday for "ill-advised" public criticism of Donald Trump, promising to be more discreet in the future.

The leader of the court's liberal wing sought to quiet complaints that she crossed a line in her remarks about Trump, saying in a statement that judges should not comment on candidates for public office.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Did Step In It—Now Get Over It - Commentary by Roger Parloff

"One problem with what Ginsburg said is the painfully obvious hypothetical that several commentators have raised: What if the 2016 election ends the way the 2000 election did, with the contest being litigated up to the U.S. Supreme Court for an reprise of Bush v. Gore? Would she have to recuse herself?"

"Well, she wouldn’t literally have to, because there’s no authority with the power to force a Supreme Court justice to recuse him or herself if the justice chooses not to. But if she didn’t, the institution’s credibility would take its biggest drubbing since, well, Bush v. Gore."

OK, I'm repeating the words of RBG (who is addressing Trump) when I say "Gotten away without turning over tax returns" then after a comma I address Hillary when I say "how about deleting top secret emails?".

Good god, do any of actually know how to read proper written english? I'm also having this fight with BC Chick in another thread. How about just once saying "Oh OK, I thought you were saying something else?" Is that so hard?

oh pleeeese! Your "proper written English", wasn't. But hey, how telling of you to pick up the mega-talking point from right-wing media about the "74 questions" directed at the U.S. Attorney General. Those questions were answered - just because the Republicans didn't care for the answer being provided... . After reviewing some of the actual testimony it's abundantly clear just what Republicans were trying to do; meanwhile Democrats weren't playing along and actually took the opportunity in speaking directly to the U.S. Attorney General to question her in regards to actual ongoing and pertinent matters of the day within the U.S..
