Washington is gearing up for another fight over the Supreme Court.
This could be the end-all, be-all of Supreme Court nomination battles.
And all hell broke loose after Trump revealed who he would nominate to the Supreme Court to replace this Justice.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s health continues to be a mystery.
The radical leftist judge has not been seen in public for nearly two months after doctors announced they had removed cancerous tumors from her lungs.
Doctors discovered the cancer when they were treating her for broken ribs she suffered back in September.
Following her surgery, Ginsberg missed two weeks of oral arguments at the Supreme Court, but doctors claimed she was cancer free.
But Ginsberg has since canceled public appearances and rumors continue to fly around Washington that she may retire.
Liberals are terrified of this outcome.
Republicans grew their Senate majority so Trump could nominate a strong pro-life Justice to replace Ginsberg and not worry about losing the votes of pro-abortion RINOs Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins.
In an interview with the Daily Caller, Trump addressed the issue of a possible Supreme Court vacancy in the Oval Office.
The Daily Caller reports:
President Donald Trump wished Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg good health and said it was likely the person he nominates to fill the next vacancy on the Court would come from his previously released list.
“I hope that she’s healthy … I hope she’s happy … I hope she lives for a long time,” Trump said of Ginsburg, who has not been seen in public for over a month after recovering from lung surgery and a bout with cancer.
Insiders believe Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Justice Amy Coney Barrett would be the favorite to replace Ginsberg.
California Democrat Dianne Feinstein had previously attacked Coney Barrett during her confirmation hearing for her Catholic faith.
“When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you,” Feinstein ranted during the hearing. “And that’s of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for years in this country.”
Americans were horrified about Feinstein’s blatant anti-Catholic bigotry.
But the flipside is that conservatives believe Feinstein smearing Coney Barrett for her faith means the left fears her as the strongest possible Supreme Court nominee.
The Daily Caller pressed Trump if Coney Barrett would replace Ginsberg.
Trump didn’t go that far, but he did hint that she would be a choice since he plans to choose from a previously submitted list of a candidates, of which Coney Barrett was on.
The Daily Caller reports:
Trump would not commit to nominating Judge Amy Coney Barrett in the case of a Ginsburg vacancy, but said of his previously released list of potential Supreme Court nominees, “I have very much confined myself to that list as you know … that list has great people on it … and I’d say it’s highly likely I would say.”
Who do you think Trump should nominate if a Supreme Court vacancy occurs?
