Former Obama aide says Justice Breyer won’t cave to leftist pressure to retire

Democrats waited too long to replace U.S. Supreme Court Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died while a Republican was in office to replace her. They won’t be making that mistake again.

Left-leaning Justice Stephen Breyer likely will not be stepping down from the high court amid cries for his retirement, Fox News reported. Some are calling for the Obama appointee to retire so that President Joe Biden can nominate someone else in his place.

Speaking during a Federalist Society virtual event, former Obama White House Counsel Neil Eggleston was asked about the left-wing Demand Justice group’s efforts to get Breyer out. He said that just “just “because somebody bought a van” with that message — an actual tactic the group used — Breyer was not going to give up his seat.

Eggleston likened the situation to how it was with Ginsburg during his role as White House counsel. He oversaw Obama’s court nominees, but he didn’t want to exert pressure on Ginsburg even as some other activists were nervous about her age.

“I kind of had the same reaction to this,” Eggleston said. “I think Justice Breyer doesn’t need the liberal media and those sort of people – progressives like me are not turning on him, he’s in our view a fantastic justice… he’s gonna make whatever decision he’s gonna make.”

The calls for Breyer’s retirement have come to a crescendo following a Harvard Law speech he made condemning the idea of court-packing. Speculation about the practice has been swirling since before the election, and some believe President Joe Biden is willing to add justices to the court to tip the current balance in favor of left-wing judges.

“If the public sees judges as politicians in robes, its confidence in the courts and in the rule of law can only diminish, diminishing the court’s power, including its power to act as a check on other branches,” Breyer warned alumni and students. “That authority, like the rule of law, depends on trust… that the court is guided by legal principle, not politics,” he continued.

“Structural alteration motivated by the perception of political influence can only feed that latter perception, further eroding that trust,” Breyer charged. “There is no shortcut.”

The fact that calls for his retirement came after such a sober assessment of the controversial practice is typical of the left. Breyer has made it clear he won’t do their bidding on this issue, and now he must go. The left knows that the court is the last hurdle to passing their radical agenda — and that’s why they are desperate to clean house when they feel it’s threatened.

I hope he sticks to his conviction. He is one of the Democrat Judges that I do respect. I have none for Roberts and the jury is out on Sotomayor and Kagin.
