RBG Won't Return to the Supreme Court Next Week

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will likely miss one more week at the United States Supreme Court as she continues to recover at her home from lung surgery late a year ago, reports Fox News. She missed oral arguments for the first time in more than 25 years last week.

"Her recovery from surgery is on track", she said.

The 85-year-old associate justice underwent surgery to recover two cancerous growths from her left lung on December 21. People are concerned about her health, and rightly so, but as noted by Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Ginsburg is working from home, and will participate in all opinions via the parties' previously submitted briefs and the argument transcripts that will be provided to her.

Doctors say that there was "no evidence" of disease after the surgery and that "currently, no further treatment is planned".

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Ginsburg slammed Trump and called him a "faker", an unusual move for a Supreme Court justice. During both episodes, Ginsburg did not miss a single oral argument.

She's the subject of a Hollywood biopic and is very much alive, but the White House has been in contact with Senate Republicans about possible replacements for the ailing 85-year old Supreme Court justice. "She's barely two weeks out", Dr. Raja Flores, chief of the division of thoracic surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in NY, told CNBC.

President Donald Trump speaks to media before departing the White House en route to the U.S. -Mexico border in McAllen, Texas, on January 10, 2019.

Polish Police Arrest Huawei Executive, Accused Of Spying For China

"Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a pulmonary lobectomy today at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City", read the statement.

Since taking office, President Donald Trump has had the opportunity to replace two retiring justices, tipping the balance in the conservatives' favor. But Ginsburg has already survived cancer in 1999 and 2009.

"I wish Ruth Bader Ginsberg a long and happy life - hopefully in retirement", Cornyn said during the duo's keynote speech at a Texas Public Policy Foundation luncheon on Friday.

If she leaves office, her departure would allow President Trump to nominate a third Supreme Court justice, making the most nominations in one presidential term since President Ronald Reagan.

She's recovering from major surgery and can probably still outlift you, bro.
