Days before her death, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dictated to her Harvard-educated lawyer granddaughter Clara Spera that; “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
And on Monday Trump tried to create doubt, saying he suspects the ‘Democrats made that up.”
“I don’t know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi. I would be more inclined to the second, OK? That came out of the wind. It sounds so beautiful. But that sounds like a Schumer deal or maybe a Pelosi or shifty Schiff. So that came out of the wind. Let’s see. I mean, maybe she did and maybe she didn’t.”
Now Ms. Spera has had to defend her Grandmother.
‘I pulled out my computer and she dictated the following sentence to me. She said: ‘My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed’.
‘I read it back to it and she was very happy with it. When I asked ‘is that it, is there anything else you’d like to say?’. She said ‘the rest of my work is a matter of public record’. So that’s all she wanted to add.’
And Rep. Adam Schiff — or, “shifty Schiff” as Trump calls him — has also debuted Trump’s false claim:
Mr. President, this is low. Even for you. No, I didn’t write Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying wish to a nation she served so well, and spent her whole life making a more perfect union. But I am going to fight like hell to make it come true. No confirmation before inauguration.”
