Breitbart News has said that Politico is spreading rumors about the retirement of RBG from the Supreme Court, but they go on to say that the entire story is probably false. But, additional information has come out since then that could prove that the Politico story is true. RBG’s doctor said she is very sick and that he believes she has stage IV cancer – or cancer that could spread to other organs. That being the case, she may be contemplating retirement. Allegedly, she told one of her law clerks, and that clerk told a friend, who leaked the information.
The White House is reaching out to political allies and conservative activist groups to prepare for an ailing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s possible death or departure from the Supreme Court — an event that would trigger the second bitter confirmation battle of President Donald Trump’s tenure.
The outreach began after Ginsburg, 85, on Monday missed oral arguments at the court for the first time in her 25 years on the bench. The justice, who was nominated to the court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, announced in late December that she underwent a surgical procedure to remove two cancerous growths from her lungs.
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,” said a source familiar with those conversations, who spoke on background given the delicate nature of the subject. “They’re doing it very quietly, of course, because the idea is not to be opportunistic, but just to be prepared so we aren’t caught flat-footed.”
