>>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
