Late USA Supreme Court justice Ruth Ginsburg to be buried in Arlington cemetery after Congress honor
Ruth Ginsburg, the second USA female Supreme Court justice who died from complications related to cancer will be buried in Arlington cemetery the family says.
She laid in state at the statuary hall of the US Congress as opposed to the Rotunda, meaning, the decision for her to be honored in Congress was taken at the house level alone, since approval by both houses needed to happen before she could be placed in the Rotunda.
Many believe that the differences between the House majority leader McConnel and Congressional Speaker Nancy Pelosi led to the difference.
In an invitation-only event inside the congress, led by Speaker Pelosi, Jewish Rabbi Lauren Holtzblatt spoke about her life story and contribution to the legal and judicial system.
Senator McConnel stayed away from the event but sent a message just like republican house minority leader Kevin McCarthy.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris were present, though president Trump visited the Supreme Court on Thursday 24th of September 2020 to pay his respect and honor her, accompanied by First Lady Melania Trump.
