SCOTUS Justice Breyer retiring
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, 83, is retiring at the end of the Court’s term. Breyer, nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1994, is one of just three liberals left on the nation’s highest court.
Progressives have been working to convince Breyer to retire while President Joe Biden still has a Democratic majority in the Senate.
NBC News’ Pete Williams broke the news. He notes President Biden committed to nominating the first Black woman to the Supreme Court.
