This election was all about picking a conservative, constitutional minded Supreme Court justice. With one nomination under his belt, Trump just might be picking another before we know it.
The Federalist Papers gives the story on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s possible retirement.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg just announced that while she intends to finish out 2017, her future on the bench beyond that is uncertain.
Ginsburg, 83, told the BBC that she plans on making big decisions on her future one year at a time.
“At my age you have to take it year-by-year,” Ginsburg said.”I know I’m OK this year, but what will be next year?”
“I’m hopeful, however, because my most senior colleague, the one who most recently retired, Justice John Paul Stevens, stepped down at age 90. So I have a way to go,” she continued.
Justice Ginsburg has been seriously critical of Trump. There would be a sweet irony in having him name her replacement.
