The former secretary of State told Ginsburg she finished the routine, “but without cameras” to record how she did, according to the Post.

Bill Clinton nominated Ginsburg in 1993, during his first term as president, saying at the event that he knew within 10 minutes of her interview that he would nominate her, the Post reported.

The justice acknowledged there were concerns about nominating her because of her age. Ginsburg, now 86, has started her 27th year on the court. 

She told an audience at Berkeley Law last week that her recent cancer diagnosis does not stop her from completing her workout.
