Professor Arthur Hellman Offers Expert Comment To NBC Nightly News and WaPo on Justice Ginsburg Trump Comments

NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt reported on the blunt comments from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on this year's presidential race and Republican nominee Donald Trump's fitness for the presidency. Pitt Law Professor Arthur Hellman provided expert commentary on the matter. 

"No matter how strongly she feels, part of the job of a judge is to keep her feelings to herself on these public issues and candidates for public office," Hellman said.

Additionally Hellman spoke to the Washington Post on the matter.

"It would cast doubt on her impartiality in those decisions," Hellman said. "If she has expressed herself as opposing the election of Donald Trump, her vote to strike down a Trump policy would be under a cloud."
