Reports surfaced yesterday that the White House is reaching out to allies and conservatives in preparation of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's possible departure.
On Monday, Ginsburg, 85, missed oral arguments at the court for the first time in her 25 years on the bench. Nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1993, Ginsburg is recovering from a surgical procedure that removed two cancerous spots from her lungs.
If Ginsburg does retire, President Donald Trump would have another opportunity to appoint yet another conservative justice to the highest court in America.
