Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg planned to retire under Hillary Clinton if she was elected president, NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg said this evening.

“She loved her job,” said Totenberg. “She had planned, in fact, to retire and be replaced by a nominee of the first woman president because she really thought Hillary Clinton would be elected.”

“Fate dealt her… the cards not that way and she just soldiered on,” Totenberg added.

Totenberg went on to report that Ginsberg had expressed that wish in a dictated statement her granddaughter, Clara Spera, just days before her death.

“My most fervent wish is, that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” Ginsburg said in the statement, according to Totenberg.

“She knew what was to come, that her death will have profound consequences for the court and the country,” said Totenberg, speaking with CNN’s anchor Anderson Cooper this evening.
