By Daily Caller. Associate Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will retire at the end of the Court’s current term, NBC News reported Wednesday.
His successor is expected to sit on the Court by the beginning of its next term in October, according to the outlet. Breyer, who is 83 years old, was appointed to the Court by President Bill Clinton in 1994. He is the longest-serving member of the Court’s liberal bloc and the second-longest serving current member after Associate Justice Clarence Thomas.
The White House declined to comment on the announcement, with White House press secretary Jen Psaki saying that she “ha[s] no additional details or information to share.” . . .
It has always been the decision of any Supreme Court Justice if and when they decide to retire, and how they want to announce it, and that remains the case today. We have no additional details or information to share from @WhiteHouse

In recent months, left-wing activists have called on Breyer to announce a retirement plan. The group Demand Justice, which is made up of former Obama administration officials, has been at the forefront of the pressure campaign, even renting a billboard truck with the words “Breyer, Retire” emblazoned on the side. The group noted the 2020 death of liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was replaced by conservative Justice Amy Coney Barrett, and expressed concern that Breyer would also be replaced by a conservative.

Stunning “Claim”: ‘Brutal Sexual Assault’ by Next Pick for U.S. Supreme Court
By WND. With Justice Stephen Breyer stepping down from the U.S. Supreme Court, there’s suddenly plenty of speculation about what comes next, and the identity of his potential replacement.
Now, Roger Stone, a close associate of former President Donald Trump, has posted a stunning message on Gab.com. . .
“I’ve never shared this with anyone before, but when I was young, I was violated in a brutal sexual assault that I never reported.
“The perpetrator was whomever Biden nominates to the Supreme Court.”
His tongue-in-cheek remark is a poke at how the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh was handled, before he was confirmed to the high court. (Read more from “Stunning Claim: ‘Brutal Sexual Assault’ by Next Pick for U.S. Supreme Court” HERE)
Will Predictions That Biden Will Install Kamala on Supreme Court Prove True?
By WND. That Joe Biden might nominate his vice president, Kamala Harris, to the U.S. Supreme Court was making the rounds on news and other sites on Wednesday literally before newscasters finished their announcement that Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was retiring.
It’s true that she does check the boxes that Biden imposed, as a candidate, when he said he would make sure a black woman was nominated first. . .
But the real reason may have nothing to do with her qualifications, but with the idea that Biden apparently has been looking for a way to remove her from the VP job for some time already. . .
Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said, “Politically speaking, if you are not happy with the vice president and you want her in a different role, there’s no greater role than the Supreme Court.”
CNN, weeks ago, suggested there was “internal discontent” inside Harris’ office at the White House and there was an “at-times rocky relationship with the Biden White House.” (Read more from “Will Predictions That Biden Will Install Kamala on Supreme Court Prove True?” HERE)
