President Trump Is Already Anticipating the Retirement of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Misses 3 Days On The Bench, But This Isn't A Big Deal Test coming for Ginsburg's promise to leave if she's not at 'full steam'

Ginsburg, 85, had surgery on December 21 to remove two cancerous nodules from her left lung.

If Ginsburg, who will turn 86 in March, is unable to return to the bench, President Donald Trump would have the chance to nominate a third Supreme Court justice to the highest US court. Prior to this week, she had never missed a day of work in her more than 25 years as a Supreme Court justice. She plans to work from home next week and will miss one more week of oral arguments.

The Supreme Court says Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's recovery from cancer surgery is "on track" and no further treatment is required.

"Two nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung were discovered incidentally during tests performed at George Washington University Hospital to diagnose and treat rib fractures sustained in a fall on November 7", the statement said.

The White House has told allies at the Judicial Crisis Network and the Federalist Society to ready for another potential hard confirmation battle, Politico reports in an article relying on unnamed sources.

Trump closer to declaring emergency; 800000 won't get paid
Democrats, the president exclaimed, "don't give a damn" about crime, or people coming into the country and stabbing Americans. Pressure on both sides could intensify on Friday when about 800,000 federal employees miss their first paychecks.


Ginsburg's absence for the past three days and recent health issues have fueled speculation about her future on the high court. "According to the thoracic surgeon Valerie W. Rusch, MD, FACS, both nodules removed during surgery were found to be malignant on initial pathology evaluation".

A year ago, the news broke that Ginsburg hired law clerks for at least two court terms, signaling she intends to stay through 2020.

The White House "is taking the temperature on possible short-list candidates, reaching out to key stakeholders, and just making sure that people are informed on the process", a source told Politico anonymously. Senate Republicans had to change rules in order to eliminate the filibuster, allowing Supreme Court justices to be confirmed with a simple majority of Senate support.

President Trump has wished Ginsburg a speedy recovery.

Speaking with CNBC, top doctors who have performed pulmonary lobectomies, the procedure Ginsburg underwent, said that they expect the Supreme Court justice would be back on the bench in less than six weeks, in time for the Court's February sitting.
