Liberal justice Stephen Breyer just dropped an unsubtle hint about his possible retirement.
“I mean, eventually I’ll retire, sure I will,” Breyer said while noting that “it’s hard to know exactly when.”
Fox has the scoop:
Justices enjoy lifetime appointments, and while some like Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg have remained on the court until their passing, others like Justice Anthony Kennedy have called it quits early. In an interview with Slate, Breyer said he looks to be among the latter.
It looks like Breyer is hoping for a Biden presidency, which would allow him to be replaced with a left wing judge.
He’s also probably trying to avoid what happened to his former colleague, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who failed to retire under President Obama and eventually died in office under a GOP president.
Its safe to say that Liberals will demand a replacement even more radical than Breyer himself.
