DC Chronicle writer Michael Moates also confirmed he has been hearing the same thing:
We must be on the same rumor mill. I’m hearing the same thing and also that the WH knows.

We recently wrote about how the White House is preparing for Ginsburg’s departure from the Supreme Court due to her failing health.
President Trump’s team “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.”
“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.”

If Ginsburg actually retires, this will give Trump yet ANOTHER Supreme Court pick, making that a total of three during his first term in office.
Ginsburg’s departure would allow Trump to create the Court’s strongest conservative majority in decades, a scenario sure to bring intense opposition from Democrats and liberal activists still furious over the October confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, reports Politico.
Multiple sources tonight tell me this woman is not even in DC, but in New York and preparing to step down from the Supreme Court.
