Trump claims to be saving Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg’s seat for Amy Coney Barrett, a far-right Christian jurist.

According to The Hill, Trump has already picked a replacement for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg. Trump said he is “saving” Judge Amy Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th circuit to replace RBG.

Barrett was a popular conservative pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy before Justice Brett Kavanaugh was officially nominated.

Since Kennedy’s retirement, Trump has allegedly made clear his hope to replace Ginsburg with Barrett. On separate occasions, he told people, “I’m saving her for Ginsburg.”

Barrett’s opposition to abortion rights would likely have lead Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) to vote her down if she had been nominated for Supreme Court.

Ginsburg, 86, missed several cases in January due to her cancer surgery in December.

Notorious RBG will out live this term..

and she will out live him in prison...

while serving his sentencing of lying, stealing, cheating, having terrible friends, laundering money for Russians via $60+++ million dollar penthouse real estate in the Big Apple.

The people of New York... There is no pardon or impeachment necessary.. Just stay the course... Prevent more damage for just over one year....

We the People will vote these nutjobs out...

The the best city on Earth can be first ever to bring down and incarcerate a former president and all those involved in covering this up.

We the People Are not going to let you down....
