Letter: What is Sen. Chuck Grassley thinking?

Sen. Chuck Grassley made the most overt deep dive into politicizing the Supreme Court of the United States, when as chairman of the Judicial Committee, he took away the right of the president’s nominee (Judge Merrick Garland) to have hearings on his appointment to fill the vacancy created by a death.

Sen. Grassley on July 13 called on Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to apologize for her concerns about the future of the United States Supreme Court due to the current political environment. Why does Justice Ginsburg have lesser rights to speak out than Sen. Grassley? I thank Justice Ginsburg for speaking out.

We should call on Sen. Grassley to apologize to the Supreme Court and each of the Justices for inserting himself into work of the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

Next, he needs to apologize to the American public for diminishing the quantity and the quality of the work the Justices are doing with fewer justices.

Then he needs to apologize to Iowans for becoming so partisan that he puts his political party ahead of concerns for the well-being of the people is supposed to be serving.
