Gorka, Wohl: Multiple Sources That Ruth Bader Ginsburg is Retiring Today
Sebastian Lukács Gorka, who served as deputy assistant to US President Donald Trump in 2017, is reporting on social media that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is set to retire very soon.
Jacob Wohl, former columnist for the website The Gateway Pundit, claims his sources say that it will happen within hours.
Gisnburg herself has stated often that she would retire when she cannot any longer work at “Full Steam”.
Gorka: 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. Are you ready for what will ensue?

Wohl: Sources saying Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will resign tomorrow.
Ginsburg missed oral arguments for the first time in her career this week. The White House is reportedly reaching out to conservative activist groups in anticipation that Ginsburg may soon retire or worse due to her recent cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Politico reported that the White House stirrings came in response to Ginsburg being out of the office.
The 85-year-old, who is recovering from recent cancer surgery, has repeatedly said in the past that she would retire from the nation’s highest court only when she can no longer “do the job full steam.”
“As long as I can do the job full steam, and that, at my age, is not predictable,” Ginsburg told the New York Times in 2013.
Three years later she told NPR that she would “retire when it’s time. And when is it time? When I can’t do the job full steam.”
As recently as last year she repeated that she would remain on the court as long as she can be fully engaged.
“As long as I can do the job full steam, I will be here,” she said during an event at the Adas Israel Congregation in Washington.
“I said I will do this job as long as I can do it full steam,” she said last month at the premiere of a movie about her early career.

Ginsburg underwent lung surgery last month to remove cancerous growths, and is continuing to recover. After weeks out of public view, she was spotted Wednesday morning leaving her Washington, D.C., apartment.
The Justice had suffered a fall in early November that resulted in three rib fractures and her hospitalization. While she was under observation, doctors found that she had cancerous nodules on her left lung.
One source “familiar with conversations” about judge replacement research told Politico that the White House “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. The idea is not to be opportunistic, but just to be prepared. So we aren’t caught flat-footed,” that person said.
In any event, many of the judge names that have been floated so far are women:
Amy Coney Barrett, Joan Larsen, Amul Thapar, Raymond Kethledge, Britt Grant; Thomas Hardiman, and Neomi Rao.
We will see! Gorka has a lot to lose if he is not accurate. She is DEFINITELY no longer at “Full Steam!”
