Axios: Trump Plans to Pick Barrett for Ginsburg’s SCOTUS Seat


President Donald Trump last year told confidants he was planning to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat with conservative Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett, reports Axios.

“I’m saving her for Ginsburg,” Trump said as he was deliberating over filling Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s seat, according to three sources who spoke with the news outlet.

Ginsburg, 86, just finished her third battle with cancer. She returned to the bench in early February after missing a series of cases due to surgery for lung cancer.

Axios reported that Trump picked Brett Kavanaugh over Barrett last year over concerns her staunch opposition to abortion rights would lose the votes of Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

One source told Axios that Barrett is “the most known quantity right now amongst the women on the list. … And she also has the inside track in the sense that she was kind of battle-tested for having gone through a confirmation already.”

Trump, though, changes his mind all the time.

“The Supreme Court judicial selection process with the president is a very fluid one,” said a source. “He floats in and out of these discussions over a period of time.”

  1. Ruth VADER Ginsberg will use a taxidermist before the LEFT let her go during the presidents term(S) !! It would be hard to tell the difference because lately she has dosed off during sessions. She claimed that it was because she DRANK A LITTLE WINE!!! But at 86 she is obviously not as sharp as she needs to be!!!

    • But she will be as sharp as a leftist need her to be the next the years. Just as the dead vote for the leftists. The brain-dead it on the courts!

    • But she will be as sharp as the leftist need her to be the next 50 years. Just as the dead vote for the leftists. The brain-dead sit on the courts! sorry no edit

  2. A welfare check needs to be done on Ginsberg I believe that find her in the freezer in the basement. That’s the trouble with leftists they only vote one way they don’t need to read any briefs about anything they know how they are going to vote

  3. All partisanship aside… we, as a country, need judges, in all courts, from top to bottom, that are not only alert, in full control of their faculties and interpret the law(s), impartially, fairly and without interjection of their personal opinion or political slant. Period! Whether left, right or in between, anything more or anything less does a disservice to the participants, the courts and the rule of and sanctity of the law.

  4. Could it be they are using a body double? “The dozing off” is to ward off suspicion. The democrats would stop at nothing to keep her chuggin.
