Liberals panic as White House prepares for Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s possible retirement

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is expected to miss a second week on the bench as she recovers from surgery last month to remove cancerous nodules in her lung, a court spokeswoman said Friday.

Ginsburg had surgery December 21 for two malignant nodules in her left lung, the 85-year-old justice's third bout with cancer. People are concerned about her health, and rightly so, but as noted by Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Ginsburg is working from home, and will participate in all opinions via the parties' previously submitted briefs and the argument transcripts that will be provided to her.

"Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required", she added.

Speculation about her future took on renewed fervor this week after she missed oral arguments for the first time in 25 years. She also has broken ribs on at least two occasions.

As an admirer and fan of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Felicity Jones knew that portraying the feminist Supreme Court justice in the film On the Basis of Sex would be a "nerve-wracking" task.

Until Monday, she hadn't missed oral arguments she was confirmed to join the court after Bill Clinton's nomination of her in 1993. Her retirement would give President Trump a chance to nominate a third justice.

After the match he was optimistic of a bigger and better year around. "If I was one of the top seeds, I'd be a bit anxious about him next week".

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.

Ginsburg, 85, showed the necklace to Katie Couric in a 2014 interview and told her she had deemed it her dissenting collar because, "It looks fitting for dissents".

This is RBG's third bout with cancer after receiving treatment for colon cancer in 2000 and pancreatic cancer 10 years later. That said, I'm willing to call it now: she is invincible.

Politico said numerous prospective nominees to replace Ginsburg were women, which theoretically would derail the likelihood of sexual-assault claims such as those faced by Justices Thomas and Kavanaugh.

Ginsburg showed off her collection of collars from around the world that she pairs with her judicial robes in the documentary "RBG".

Heavy attention is given to Ginsburg's health amid liberal worries that, if she dies or has to retire for health reasons, Trump would get another pick and lock the high court into a conservative ideology for a generation to come.
