(DCWatchdog.com) – Happening Now: Just moments ago, reports from various media outlets across the country indicate United States Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will retire and step down from the Court.
This retirement of one of the Court’s most liberal justices will allow President Joe Biden and the Democrats to replace Breyer with another liberal. However, it is fully anticipated that Senate Republicans, led by Sen. Mitch McConnell, will do everything in their power to stop a vote on Biden’s selection until after the upcoming Senate elections in November.
As the New York Post is reporting:
“Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will retire at the end of the high Court’s current term — setting the stage for President Joe Biden to replace him with another liberal jurist, according to reports Wednesday.
“Breyer, 83, is the oldest judge on the Supreme Court and has been under increasing pressure from liberal Democrats to step down in recent months.
“Biden said during his presidential campaign that he would nominate a black woman if he got the chance.
“‘I’m looking forward to making sure there’s a black woman on the Supreme Court, to make sure we in fact get every representation,’ he said on Feb. 25, 2020.” [emphasis added]
