Democrats Target The Supreme Court
During a recent interview with MSNBC, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) doubled down on the push by the left to force Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to retire so that Biden can select a new judge to occupy his seat.
According to Breitbart, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell asked, “Are you hoping that Justice Breyer creates a vacancy on the Supreme Court this summer?”
Whitehouse replied, “Well, now would be the right time. And if I believed it would do any good to say that, then I’d probably say that. But, you know, you get on the Supreme Court and you get those robes and you make your own decisions, and I don’t know that senators trying to tell you what to do actually makes that decision easier, rather than harder.”
Sen, Whitehouse isn’t the only Democrat to ask for this, top Democrats such Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are all pushing for Justice Stephen Breyer to retire so Democrats can fill his seat.
