Amid Supreme Court Hype, Ruth Bader Ginsburg Reveals EXACTLY When She’s Retiring

The retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and the subsequent appointment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh has some people eyeing other members on the nation’s highest court for potential retirement.

Kennedy announced he was retiring when he was 82 years old, leaving just one justice on the court older than 80: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. People have speculated a potential retirement for Ginsburg, who is three years older than Kennedy, for several years. But, the Bill Clinton-appointee says she is clinging to her Supreme Court robes for another few years. She said she could stay on the Supreme Court until 2023, or later.

Per CNN:

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she hopes to stay on the Supreme Court until the age of 90.

“I’m now 85,” Ginsburg said on Sunday. “My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years.”

She has already hired law clerks for at least two more terms.

As BizPac Review reports, Ginsburg previously suggested that she would have retired if Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 presidential election.

Not surprisingly, Ginsburg opposes term limits for Supreme Court appointees — a policy many Americans don’t approve of.

“You can’t set term limits, because to do that you’d have to amend the Constitution,” Ginsburg claimed. “We hold our offices during good behavior…And most judges are very well-behaved.”

But is Ruth Bader Ginsburg “well-behaved?” Not really. In July 2016, Ginsburg publicly trashed then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, calling him an egotistical “faker.”

“He is a faker,” Ginsburg said in 2016. “He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego.”

As BizPac Review previously reported, Ginsburg then suggested she would move to New Zealand if Trump got elected

Here’s more on Ginsburg, from Fox News:

Ginsburg, who was nominated in 1993 by President Clinton, has been a consistent liberal on the court.

“My dear spouse used to say the true symbol of the US is not a bald eagle,” she said at the event, the Guardian reported. “It is the pendulum,” adding that “when it goes very far in one direction you can count on it coming back.”

Ginsburg also remembered Justice Scalia, saying, “If I had my choice of dissenters when I was writing for the court, it would be Justice Scalia,” noting that sometimes it was like a ping-pong game.

President Trump and his supporters are eagerly awaiting the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, as he would be the second Supreme Court Justice added in the first two years of Trump’s presidency. Having Kavanaugh confirmed, alongside the previous appointment and confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch, would undoubtedly be a hallmark of his administration.
