Trump says Supreme Court needs ninth justice to decide election

"I think it's better if you go before the election because I think... this scam that the Democrats are pulling - it's a scam - the scam will be before the United States Supreme Court", the president said.

The film companies said they would donate their net proceeds from the re-release to the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation in support of its Women's Rights Project, which was co-founded by Justice Ginsburg in 1972.

RBG, which won an Emmy award and was nominated for two Oscars, traced Justice Ginsburg's legal legacy, personal life and strenuous workouts that earned her the moniker Notorious RBG.

Fox News correspondent Chad Pergram reports on the next steps in the Supreme Court nomination process.

It was there, Roberts said, that Ginsburg "won famous victories that helped move our nation closer to equal justice under law to the extent that women are now a majority in law schools, not simply a handful".

Following the private ceremony, the public was invited to pay respect to Ginsburg, who will lie in repose under the Portico on Wednesday and Thursday.

A private interment service is slated to take place next week at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, which borders Washington.

Amid the celebrations of her life, the political struggle over her successor is expected to dominate the Capitol.

He later, courageously, came out to bat at number 10 in SRH's chase but it was evident that he was finding it even hard to stand. It does not look great, he couldn't put any weight on his leg. "Lot of courage for Mitchell (Marsh ) to go out there and try".

Trump's Saturday announcement will set the clock ticking on what is likely to be a contentious fight in Congress as Republicans push to get the nominee confirmed at an unusually quick pace.

On Monday, he met at the White House with Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the Chicago-based 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals, who is considered a leading contender for the job. "This building was her home, too", he said.

Scott said he wasn't in the Senate when Rubio and former Sen.

House Republicans wrote a letter to the president on Wednesday, pushing him to nominate Barrett.

Republicans appear to have the votes to confirm Trump's nominee before Election Day if confirmation hearings do not bring up any major red flags. "If Republicans will completely reverse themselves on a major principle whenever it suits them, what can you trust them on?" Is that why Senate Republicans are in such a rush to get a new right-wing justice confirmed before the election?

Their support all but ensures that Trump's nominee will receive a vote on the Senate floor. Graham would decide the process after Mr. Trump states his pick this weekend. They said the Judiciary Committee could hold hearings the week of October 10.

While the victor of a presidential election is generally called just hours after polls close, the coronavirus pandemic has shifted the landscape and is forcing millions of Americans to vote by mail, which means final results may not be known until days after the election.

The Republican plan to act quickly hinges in part on the White House's ability to complete a pile of paperwork. The nominee also faces a Federal Bureau of Investigation background check.
