Alan Dershowitz: Justice Ginsburg Should Skip All Trump Court Cases

By    |   Friday, 21 Oct 2016 04:11 PM

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg should recuse herself from any cases involving Donald Trump for calling the Republican presidential candidate an ego-driven "faker," renowned civil rights lawyer Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg said in an interview with CNN: "He is a faker … He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego."

"In an ideal world, she should recuse herself," Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor emeritus, said Friday on "America Talks Live."

"But then again, [former justice] Sandra Day O'Connor should've recused herself from [George W.] Bush vs. [Al] Gore because she told people when she saw the networks calling initially Florida for Gore, she said, 'that's a disaster' and she walked out and that was publicized and she sat on the case.

"The rules are different for the Supreme Court. There are no rules for the Supreme Court. They decide themselves whether or not to recuse themselves … [The late Antonin] Scalia didn't recuse himself even though his son stood to get a job if Bush won the election rather than Gore."

Dershowitz called the lack of rules a legal "Wild West."

"They decide whatever they want to do and they're not bound by any code of judicial conduct," he told Steve Malzberg.

Dershowitz is the author of "Electile Dysfunction: A Guide for Unaroused Voters," published by Rosettabooks.
