ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) House Speaker Paul Ryan criticized Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for her critical comments about Republican presidential contender Donald Trump. Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Ryan said, "She very well may be involved in adjudicating cases coming from a President Trump... she ought to be impartial. Remember Bush versus Gore?" Ginsburg has since apologized for making those comments. "On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised and I regret making them," she said in a statement issued by the court. Ginsburg, the 83-year-old senior liberal member of the high court, inserted herself into the U.S. presidential election in recent days by making negative remarks about Trump in a series of media interviews. Her earlier remarks prompted criticism from Trump, who said she should resign. In one of a series of Twitter posts, he also said Ginsburg's "mind is shot."
