“He is not trained right,” Ginsburg sat down at a New York City event where she was honored, according to the BBC.

“The truth is, the judiciary is a reactive institution,” she said. “We have no program, no agenda. We react to what is out there.”

Ginsburg also suggests that senators who show bias on impeachment should not be allowed to serve as jurors in the impeachment proceedings.

“If a judge said that a judge would be disqualified from sitting in the case,” she added.
