Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Will Resign Tomorrow, Sources Say

Sources close to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg are reporting she will be resigning tomorrow, according to Jacob Wohl, a political and corporate intel consultant:

DC Chronicle writer Michael Moates also confirmed he has been hearing the same thing:

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.

UPDATE #1:

UPDATE #2: Here is an article from the Santa Monica Observer reporting that Ginsburg is “stricken with pneumonia” and is about to retire from the Supreme Court.
