Barrett: SCOTUS justices aren’t “partisan hacks”

Source: Fox News

“Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett insisted Sunday that the court isn’t as partisan an institution as many outside observers make it out to be, as Democrats continue to direct their ire at the tribunal after multiple favorable decisions for Republicans in recent weeks. ‘My goal today is to convince you that this court is not comprised of a bunch of partisan hacks,’ Barrett said, according to the Louisville Courier Journal. ‘The media, along with hot takes on Twitter, report the results and decisions … That makes the decision seem results-oriented,’ Barrett added, according to the Courier Journal. ‘And here’s the thing: Sometimes, I don’t like the results of my decisions. But it’s not my job to decide cases based on the outcome I want. Judicial philosophies are not the same as political parties.'” (09/13/21)
