Even left-wing justices aren’t safe from the radical left.
Liberals are already beginning to try and push out liberal Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer.
Back on April 9th, the far-left group Demand Justice got a truck billboard calling for his retirement.
On the billboard, it read “Breyer, retire. It’s time for a Black woman Supreme Court Justice. There’s no time to waste”.
“We are now firmly in the window when past justices have announced their retirement, so it’s officially worrisome that Justice Breyer has not yet said that he will step down,” Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon said in a statement Friday, calling Breyer’s retirement “the only responsible choice.”
More liberals are now calling for him to step down.
Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law called on Breyer to retire while the Democrats still have the ability to confirm who replaces him.
“If one Democrat leaves for whatever reason, the Democrats could lose the Senate,” Chemerinsky said in an interview with The Hill. “For Breyer to have someone with his values and views replace him, retiring this summer could be crucial. If the Republicans take the Senate, they will not confirm a Biden nominee.”
Dan Kobil, a law professor at Capital University said that Breyer likely would not want to make the same mistake as Ruth Bader-Ginsburg:
“I’m sure Breyer realizes what a blow Justice Ginsburg’s non-retirement was to the possibility of ever having an even mildly progressive Court in our lifetime. And that describes Breyer — mildly progressive,” said Dan Kobil, a law professor at Capital University. “So I think he would not want to double down on what many view as her miscalculation.”
Breyer is the oldest Supreme Court Justice at 82-years-old. He was appointed by Bill Clinton.
If Breyer were to retire he is rumored to be replaced by Ketanji Brown Jackson, a former clerk for Breyer.
Ketanji Brown Jackson is currently a federal district court judge and is Biden’s nominee for the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
She would be the first black female Supreme Court Justice.
Not only are Democrats pushing to pack the Supreme Court, but now they are also pressuring older justices to retire.
All Democrats care about is power.
