The Senate hearings for Brett Kavanaugh have been shameful from the start.

Everyone knew they were going to be a circus, and it would’ve been that way no matter the person President Donald Trump nominated to replace the retired Anthony Kennedy.

In a surprise twist, a second liberal Supreme Court Justice has come out to blast Democrats for making a mockery of the process.

Trending: BREAKING: Kavanaugh Accuser May NOT Show Up to Thursday Hearing (Details)

This has to sting.

From Townhall:

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was easily confirmed by a vote of 96-3 when President Bill Clinton nominated her in 1993.

What a contrast to the slog in the Senate today. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was just treated to four brutal days of confirmation hearings, where the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee used Kavanaugh’s old speeches and writings to suggest he would overturn Roe v. Wade, or protect the president from accountability. They also lambasted one another, and protesters interrupted proceedings every five minutes.

Continued:

At an event at George Washington on Wednesday, Ginsburg shared her wish that Kavanaugh could receive the same fair treatment she did when she was in his seat.

“The way it was, was right,” she told former Ginsburg clerk and current California Supreme Court Justice Goodwin Liu. “The way it is, is wrong. The atmosphere in ’93 was truly bipartisan.”

WATCH:

The other liberal Justice to voice an opinion? Elena Kagan.

From Breitbart:

WASHINGTON, DC – Senate Democrats are condemning Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s association with the Federalist Society, ignoring the fact that every current Supreme Court justice – including all the liberals – speak at Federalist Society events, and Justice Elena Kagan says, “I love the Federalist Society!”

The Federalist Society is America’s flagship legal organization for conservatives and libertarians, host to legal debates and scholarly forums across the nation. Founded in 1982, it is dedicated to promoting originalism: the mainstream conservative view that because federal judges are unelected – and thus unaccountable to the democratic process – the only legitimate way for them to interpret the Supreme Law of the Land in a democratic form of government is according to the Constitution’s original public meaning.

The organization was founded in 1982, and in 1985 Attorney General Ed Meese – who is a member of its board – gave a speech to the American Bar Association praising originalism as the legal policy of the Reagan administration.

Continued:

The Federalist Society now boasts almost 70,000 judges, lawyers, and law students among its members. They are found in all areas of the law, including the highest levels of government, the judiciary, academia, and major law firms.

No event better showcases the mainstream nature and the respectable stature of the Federalist Society than the annual convention it held in 2007 on its 25th anniversary. The keynote speaker was the sitting president of the United States, President George W. Bush (hardly a rightwing ideologue). Justice Antonin Scalia also gave remarks at that dinner. The speaker at the Barbara K. Olson Memorial Lecture – named in honor of the longtime Federalist Society supporter who perished in the terrorist attacks of 9/11 – was the chief justice of the United States, Chief Justice John Roberts.

Speakers at other Federalist Society conventions and events prove further its central place in American law and politics: Vice President Mike Pence, Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Mike Lee, and Sen. Tom Cotton, to name just a few.

California Sen. Kamala Harris tweeted out this deceptively edited video of Kavanaugh, via Free Beacon:

I’ve seen my share of deception and chicanery from politicians in my thankfully brief time on this earth. And sure, I expected dumb hatchet jobs and pointless grandstanding in reaction to something as big as an open Supreme Court seat. But this tweet from California Senator Kamala Harris really takes the cake.
