Fact Check: RBG Did NOT Tweet On The Day She Died 'I Have Information That Will Lead To The Arrest Of Hillary Clinton' Fake Tweet

Did Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg tweet on the day she died that she had information that would lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton? No, that's not true: A tweet the purportedly was posted by the now-deceased Supreme Court justice is a fake. Known as the Notorious RBG for her cultural importance, the 87-year-old justice did not have a Twitter account.

The claim appeared as a meme in an Instagram post (archived here) shared on September 19, 2020. The meme was a screenshot of a fake tweet that read:

I have information that will lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton.

This is the post:
