Ginsburg worries 'everything' will be up for grabs if Trump wins

•, By Gabby Morrongiello

"I don't want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs," Ginsburg said of the presumptive Republican nominee succeeding in his bid for the White House in an interview published Friday by The Associated Press.

The 83-year-old justice, who belongs to the court's liberal wing, said it's "likely that the next president, whoever she will be, will have a few appointments to make." Ginsburg is the oldest of the eight justices currently on the bench, while two of her colleagues – Anthony Kennedy and Stephen Breyer – are closing in on 80.

Trump released a list in May of 11 conservative judges that he would likely nominate to the Supreme Court if elected president. The list was praised by conservative groups like the Heritage Foundation, but drew outrage from Hillary Clinton's campaign.
