Sotomayor: Hard to Meet Friends In D.C. Without “Harboring a Bit of Mistrust”

January 5th, 2015

Justice Sotomayor has some sage words about making friends in Washington, D.C.

“Yes, life as a Supreme Court Justice is different. There’s a loss of privacy that comes along with it. You don’t meet any new friends without harboring a bit of mistrust. Especially on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. where favors are an established form of currency.”

I think anyone who has spent some time in the Beltway will appreciate this.
