Justice Ginsburg, the leader of the liberal wing of the Supreme Court, underwent a surgical procedure to remove cancerous tumors. The Free Beacon reports:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung on Friday in a surgical procedure in New York, the latest health issue experienced by the 85-year-old liberal jurist, a court spokeswoman said.
Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Ginsburg, one of the court’s nine justices, underwent a procedure known as a pulmonary lobectomy on Friday at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Arberg said that according to the thoracic surgeon, Dr. Valerie Rusch, “both nodules removed during surgery were found to be malignant.”
After the surgery, there was “no evidence of any remaining disease,” Arberg added.
“Currently, no further treatment is planned. Justice Ginsburg is resting comfortably and is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days,” Arberg said.
Liberals are now panicking, as her retirement could mean another Trump Supreme Court pick.
