    Trump White House urging allies to prepare for possible RBG departure

    After an ailing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg missed oral arguments, the Trump team began early groundwork for another potential confirmation battle.

    The White House is reaching out to politicalallies and conservative activistgroups to prepare for an ailing JusticeRuth 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 Mondaymissed oral arguments at the courtfor 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 Decemberthat 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."

    We've been wondering if she's really sicker than we're being told.

    Sorry but the death wishing is premature. It was reported last night from her doctor's colleague that she is recovering quite nicely and is working from home rather than the office. She will be back in the office within a month.

    Sure.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    Noting that Ginsberg is ready for the shovels is not the same as wishing her the fine pillow treatment that ended another Justice's life.

    I have been having thoughts she was sicker than we were told. I dont want anything to happen to her, like her politics or not shes had a long distinguished career.

    I think she was feeling well and had a clean bill of health Obamas second term and truly believed Hillary would be Potus and she wanted to serve under a woman, in Hindsight that was a bad idea

    It is prudent for the White House to have one or two vetted SCOTUS picks ready to go.
