Justice Stephen Breyer opposes politics in the Supreme Court, including court packing

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer spoke against the growing political influence in the court during an interview on Sunday, including opposition to packing the court.

“I think, well, people understand to some degree why it’s a good idea what Hamilton thought. And he thought the court should be there because there should be somebody – somebody who says when the other two branches of the government have gone outside the confines of this document,” Breyer said, referring to the Constitution.

The discussion with Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” also discussed his new book, as well as his view on packing the court.

Breyer noted “people will lose trust in the court” if more justices are added.

Breyer also addressed recent calls for him to retire now in order to allow President Joe Biden and the Democrat-led Senate to support another liberal justice. The 83-year-old justice is the oldest member of the court.

“I don’t intend to die on the court. I don’t think I’ll be there forever,” Breyer said during the interview.

Breyer may remain on the court for now, but continues to hint his end in the role is near. If so, there will be a major battle regarding his replacement, as Democrats seek to rebuild strength among the current 6-3 conservative majority in the court.

I’ve made $84,000 so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. The potential with this is endless.
