>> Julie: FOX NEWS ALERT WE
HAVE JUST LEARNED THAT JUSTICE
RUTH BADER GINSBURG UNDERWENT
THREE WEEKS OF CANCER TREATMENT,
BRET BAIER IS IN WASHINGTON HE
TAKES OVER THE COVERAGE FROM
HERE, HIGH BRETT.
>> HIGH, JULIE.
WE ARE GETTING WORD FROM THE
COURT ABOUT THIS MAKE MALIGNANT
TUMOR BEING REMOVED FROM THE
PANCREAS.
JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG.
SHE HAS HAD BEFORE ISSUES WITH
CANCER AND SHE'S HAD RADIATION
THERAPY BEFORE.
THIS IS RADIATION THERAPY AT
MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING CANCER
CENTER IN NEW YORK CITY AND IT
BEGAN WE ARE TOLD ON AUGUST 5TH,
WAS ADMINISTERED ON AN
OUTPATIENT BASIS TO TREAT HER
TUMOR ON THE PANCREAS.
SHE IS SAID TO BE RECOVERING
WELL.
SHE WAS LAST SEEN IN COURT IN
JUNE.
SINCE THEN SHE'S HAD SOME PUBLIC
APPEARANCES IN WHICH SHE DID AN
INTERVIEW WITH NPR.
SHE HAD BEEN OUT AND ABOUT AND
SEEN BUT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT
OBVIOUSLY IS A MAJOR CONCERN FOR
HER HEALTH.
SHE OBVIOUSLY IS ONE OF THE
OLDEST MEMBERS OF THE U.S.
SUPREME COURT AND SOMEONE WHO IN
THE PAST HAS HAD HEALTH ISSUES.
SHE HAD A FALL IN WHICH SHE WAS
RECOVERING FROM MONTHS AGO.
THIS MALIGNANT TUMOR HAS BEEN
REMOVED AND THE COURTS SAYS SHE
IS SPENT RECOVERING AND IS
EXPECTED TO COME BACK.
SHANNON BREAM IS THE ANCHOR OF
FOX NEWS AT NIGHT, SHE JOINS US
NOW ON THE PHONE, SHE IS ALSO
COVER THE COURT FOR US FOR
YEARS.
CHANA WHAT ABOUT THIS NEWS AND
WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT IT?
>> IT'S INTERESTING TO COME OF
THE COURT WILL OFTEN TELL US
THINGS ABOUT HOW OFTEN IT AFTER
THEY AND HANDLED TO PRESERVE
PRIVACY.
IF YOU TALK OVER THE LAST FEW
MONTHS THERE HAVE BEEN
SIGNIFICANT HEALTH ISSUES FOR
JUSTICE GINSBURG.
SHE HAS BOUNCED BACK FROM ALL
KINDS OF THINGS REALLY FOR A LOT
OF PEOPLE IT WOULD BE EXTREMELY
DIFFICULT AND SO TO BE ABLE TO
SEE THAT SHE HAS PROGRESSED
THROUGH ANOTHER TALENT IS
SOMETHING THAT IS ANOTHER MOMENT
OF SURVIVAL FOR HER AND SHOW US
HOW TOUGH SHE HAS.
WE TALK ABOUT THE WORKOUTS SHE
HAS COME OUT THAT PUSH-UPS SHE
DOES COME OF THE TRAINER SHE
WORKS OUT WITH.
YOU COULD SOMEBODY WHO REALLY
LIKES TO STAY FIT.
I'VE SEEN HER AT THE COURT
SEVERAL TIMES IN THE SPRING AND
LEADING UP TO THE RECESS FOR THE
SUMMER AND PEOPLE ALWAYS ASK ME
HOW IS SHE, HOW WAS SHE
BANKRUPTING BACK FROM THESE
THINGS.
THIS SPRING WHEN I SAW HER AFTER
SHE HAD THE TREATMENT FOR THE
LUNG TUMOR, SHE SEEMED IN THE
STRONGEST VOICE AND HEALTHIEST
PLACE THAT SHE HAD BEEN.
SHE IS OF COURSE WELL INTO HER
80s IS THE OLDEST MEMBER OF
THE COURT.
SHE'S GOING TO HAVE CHALLENGES
JUST LIKE ANYBODY AS WE GET INTO
OLDER AGE BUT SHE CONTINUES TO
BE STRONG.
SHE SHOWS UP AND LAST I SAW HER
SHE SEEMS VERY STRONG IN VOICE
AND BODY ON THE COURT.
>> I MENTIONED THAT INTERVIEW
WITH NPR THREE WEEKS AGO,
THEY'VE INTERVIEWED HER MANY
TIMES.
I SAW PIECES OF THAT AND YOU'RE
RIGHT, SHE DID SEEM FIERY AS SHE
ALWAYS IS.
SHE SAID AT THE TIME THAT SHE
WAS HEALTHY.
WE ARE LEARNING NOW THAT THIS
TREATMENT HAD BEEN GOING ON AS
AN OUTPATIENT TREATMENT TO TAKE
CARE OF THIS TUMOR.
>> YES AND I THINK THAT SHE HAS
WANTED TO MAKE, SHE'S HAD
APPEARANCES, PUBLIC EVENTS IN
THE MONTHS AFTER THE FALL THAT
OF COURSE ENTERED HER RIBS AND
LED DOCTORS TO DISCOVER THIS
OTHER ISSUE WITH HER LUNGS.
SHE MADE A POINT I THINK TO BE
OUT THERE.
SHE'S ON A VERY HECTIC SCHEDULE
OUTSIDE OF THE COURT SHE'S OUT
INVOLVED IN A NUMBER OF THINGS
AS ALL THE JUSTICES ARE.
SHE HAS BEEN OUT THERE, SHE'S
DONE INTERVIEWS.
SHE RECENTLY ASKED ABOUT THE NEW
ART JUSTICES HAD VERY KIND
THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THEM.
SHE SPOKE HIGHLY OF THEM AND SHE
IS VERY MUCH INVOLVED IN
EVERYTHING THE COURT IS DOING
GIVEN AS SHE'S BEEN GOING
THROUGH TREATMENT THEY DO HAVE
THINGS THAT HAPPEN OVER THE
SUMMER WHEN THEY ARE NOT
FORMALLY SITTING IN THEIR TERM
CARE AND EMERGENCY PETITIONS AND
ALL SORTS OF OTHER THINGS
THEY'VE BEEN HANDLING IT SHE'S
BEEN A PART OF ALL OF THAT.
WE'VE NEVER HAD ANY INDICATION
FROM THE COURT THAT SHE WASN'T
VOTING ON THOSE MATTERS OR
WEIGHING IN IN ANY WAY.
SHE HAS BEEN MAKING SURE THAT
SHE'S OUT AND ABOUT PUBLICLY AND
SPEAKING OUT AND SAYING AS FAR
AS WE CAN TELL 100% PLUGGED INTO
THE WORK OF THE COURT DESPITE
UNDERGOING THIS TREATMENT THAT
WAS VERY QUIETLY DONE OVER THE
LAST FEW WEEKS.
>> PEOPLE MAY HAVE SEEN THE
DOCUMENTARY, RBG, WHICH WAS
REALLY FASCINATING ABOUT HER
LIFE AND HOW SHE APPROACHES HER
JOB EVERY DAY.
THERE IS ZERO INDICATION THAT
SHE WOULD STEP DOWN VOLUNTARILY
RETIRE, IS THERE?
>> NO, NOT AT ALL.
SHE VERY MUCH THINKS THIS IS HER
LIFE'S WORK.
IT IS A MISSION COME AT
SOMETHING SHE HAS BEEN
COMPLETELY DEDICATED TO.
YOU'RE A MEMBER A COUPLE OF
YEARS AGO DURING THE 2016
ELECTION THAT THERE WERE A
NUMBER OF FOLKS ON THE LEFT,
THERE WERE SOME LIBERAL LAW
PROFESSORS AND OTHERS WHO WERE
PUBLICLY SAYING K, THERE IS A
CHANCE THAT HILLARY CLINTON
DOESN'T WIN THIS ELECTION AND SO
WE WANT YOU TO GO AHEAD AND STEP
DOWN TO MAKE SURE THAT SEAT CAN
BE FILLED.
THEY WERE ALL COURT SORTS OF
PRESSURE ON HER AND IF ANYTHING
THAT MADE HER MORE DETERMINED TO
STAY EXACTLY WHERE SHE WAS
COMING TO OBTAIN A POSITION THAT
SHE'S ALWAYS BEEN IN, SHE PROVED
AGAIN AND AGAIN THAT SHE IS NOT
GOING ANYWHERE.
SHE IMMEDIATELY BACKED DOWN ANY
RUMORS ABOUT RETIREMENT AND I
THINK SHE VERY MUCH WANTS TO
SIGNAL THIS IS HER PLACE, SHE
FEELS VERY STRONG CALL TO BE
RIGHT WHERE SHE HAS.
IT'S BEEN A FEW YEARS AGO BUT
WHEN HER HUSBAND PASSED AWAY, I
WAS IN COURT THE NEXT DAY FOR
ORAL ARGUMENTS AND I WAS
ACTUALLY SURPRISED TO SEE HER
THERE ON THE BENCH.
THE SENTIMENT WAS HE WAS MY
PARTNER, HE WOULD WANT ME TO BE
