President Trump defied the odds to create a conservative majority on the Supreme Court. The court now has a 6-3 conservative advantage.
Democrats have threatened to “pack the court” so they could add liberal justices to it. But there are many obstacles to that goal.
One of their biggest mistakes was to urge RBG to stay on until it was too late. Her passing gave Trump a chance to add yet another justice.
And it looks like another justice isn’t about to make the same mistake. From the Washington Examiner:
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has plans to retire but not anytime soon.
“Eventually I’ll retire, sure I will,” he told Slate in a wide-ranging interview. “And it’s hard to know exactly when.”
… Following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who famously shut down President Barack Obama’s attempts to make her retire, Breyer began facing an uptick in suggestions from the Left that he consider his own retirement.
Although he refused to say when, Justice Breyer said he will retire when he is ready.
