  • Test coming for Ginsburg's promise to leave if she's not at 'full steam'

The Supreme Court has released a statement saying that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's recovery is "on track" and that there is "no evidence of remaining disease and no further treatment is required".

The growths were found during tests Ginsburg had after she fractured ribs in a fall on November 7.

Two doctors contacted by Fox News with experience in performing pulmonary lobectomies said, given her age and procedure, a home recovery of about six-to-eight weeks is common - and they would expect the justice to be ready to resume normal duties next month. On Friday afternoon, Washington Post reporter Robert Barnes tweeted that the Supreme Court announced Ginsburg has no remaining signs of cancer and will need no additional treatment. She is also a survivor of colon and pancreatic cancers, and she has a stent in her right coronary artery.

Ginsburg, who will turn 86 in March, is recuperating at her Washington, DC, home.

Speculation about her future took on renewed fervor this week after she missed oral arguments for the first time in 25 years.

The court's oldest justice, Ginsburg - fondly known as "The Notorious RBG", a riff on slain rapper The Notorious B.I.G. - is a liberal stalwart who has said she will not retire as long as she feels she can do the work.

The White House is reaching out to political allies and conservative activist groups to prepare for an ailing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's possible death or departure from the Supreme Court - an event that would trigger the second bitter confirmation battle of President Donald Trump's tenure. 'I wouldn't say she's exactly on my side, but I wish her well, I hope she gets better, and I hope she serves on the Supreme Court for many years'. They do expect Justice Ginsburg to return sometime next month.

"But should she not return for the February 19 public sessions, there will likely be renewed concern for the liberal justice's future", reports Fox.

The Trump administration may soon be tasked with nominating a third Supreme Court justice if Ginsburg has to leave the high court due to failing health. THRICE. Ruth Bader Ginsburg may be an Avenger, I'm just saying. Her dissents in recent years have continued to energize Democrats at a time when Republicans control the executive branch of government and the Supreme Court moves rightward.

If Ginsburg, who will turn 86 in March, is unable to return to the bench, President Donald Trump would have the chance to nominate a third Supreme Court justice to the highest US court.
