Joe Biden speaks to journalists as Judge Breyer set to retire

The Independent published this video item, entitled “Joe Biden speaks to journalists as Judge Breyer set to retire” – below is their description.

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is expected to announce his retirement, NBC News reported, which gives President Joe Biden an opportunity to replace one of the court’s three liberals and maintain the balance of the highest federal court in the US.

The president refused to comment when journalists pressed him on the issue, saying “Every justice has the right to decide what he or she is going to do and announce it on their own… There has been no announcement from Justice Breyer. Let him make whatever statement he’s going to make and I’ll be happy to talk about later.”

Democrats had hoped Mr Breyer, 83, would retire while they hold the majority in the Senate before the 2022 midterm elections, since Republicans are expected to win the majority.
