If Ginsburg, who will turn 86 in March, is unable to return to the bench, President Donald Trump would have the chance to nominate a third Supreme Court justice to the highest USA court.
Following her initial in November that resulted in fractured ribs, Ginsburg declared herself 'almost repaired, ' and immediately got back to an exercise routine. This marked Ginsburg's third bout with cancer.
Ginsburg, who joined the court in 1993, underwent a surgical procedure called a pulmonary lobectomy on December 21 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NY to remove two cancerous nodules in her left lung. If Ginsburg steps down as one of the four liberal justices now serving, President Trump will nearly certainly appoint a conservative replacement, tilting the court further to the Right. She is expected to work on cases from home next week before returning to the Supreme Court. She plans to work from home next week and will miss one more week of oral arguments.
"Her recovery from surgery is on track".
Nevertheless, Politico reports that the Trump administration is quietly urging conservative groups to prepare for her departure in the near future.
Speaking of her retirement, Ginsburg has also said that like her colleague, former Justice Paul Stevens, she would like to continue on the court until she turns 90.
White House officials have been reaching out to "a small number of GOP lawmakers and conservative legal advocates, reassuring them it would be ready for any court vacancy", Fox News confirmed. Trump has added two justices since becoming president in January 2017, cementing its 5-4 conservative majority. After all, it's unlike Justice Ginsburg, but there's precedent for this sort of thing.
Like the liberal civil rights icon Marshall, who retired for health reasons during the George H.W. Bush presidency, Ginsburg has been the subject of much adulation on the Left, including books, speaking tours and a recent Hollywood biopic.
