Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Sunday she thinks she'll remain on the high court for at least five more years.

Progressives already worried about retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy's exit have feared losing Ginsburg next, NBC News reported.

“I'm now 85," Ginsburg told CNN. "My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so I think I have about at least five more years."

Her comments come weeks after President Donald Trump nominated conservative judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace Kennedy, a key swing vote on the court.
