TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): May I pause you there and ask you a question and I don't know the answer to this. So there are certain Supreme Court justices who might have strong political views but who on pure legal grounds sometimes find themselves voting with the other side. You know, who are principled enough to cross over. Was she one of those? What was her crossover percentage, do you know? 

JEANINE PIRRO (GUEST): You know, I can't speak to her crossover but what I can tell you is that she was motivated by her beliefs in women's rights and activism. I mean, I was a judge myself and there were cases that I disagreed on but the law and precedent dictated what position I would take. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a judge who allowed her belief on a particular issue, in many ways to dictate her final judgment in the case. I mean if indeed it is true what they're saying that she has indicated that she wants to be replaced by and solved by another president, I mean that gives you, if that's true, all you need to know about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 

Her comments about the president before he became president, Donald Trump, very critical. She was more than just a justice, she was a political activist.
