Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s army of 100 clerks line steps of Supreme Court as she returns for final time
RUTH Bader Ginsburg's army of 100 clerks lined up on the Supreme Court steps as she returned for the final time.
The heartwarming ceremony took place as the late Supreme Court Associate Justice's casket arrived to the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday morning.
A selection of Ginsburg's clerks served as pallbearers as nearly 120 clerks from her time at the appellate court and Supreme court gathered in attendance, according to CNN.
Ginsburg's body will lie in repose at the Supreme Court on Wednesday and Thursday so the public can pay their respects.
The Supreme Court said in a statement Monday: "The public is invited to pay respects in front of the Building from approximately 11 am until 10 pm on Wednesday, September 23.
"And from 9 am until 10 pm on Thursday, September 24."
Ginsburg will become the first woman to lie in state in the US Capitol.
And President Donald Trump has pledged that her replacement to the Supreme Court would be a woman.
"I will be putting forth a nominee next week. It will be a woman," Trump said during a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
RBG's casket will be placed in National Statuary Hall on Friday, CNN reported, in an historic event that was announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday.
Lying in state is a tribute reserved for the most distinguished government officials and military officers.
