REPORT: Justice Alito may be looking to retire

It’s the news that nobody was prepared for.

Well-connected conservative talk-show host Hugh Hewitt dropped a bomb on the judicial world today when he announced that conservative Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito was considering retirement, at the age of 70.

Alito was considered less of a risk to retire than Clarence Thomas, the senior conservative on the court at age 72.

Hewitt dropped the bomb on a radio show. The Washington Examiner reports:

Conservative Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito may be eyeing retirement.

The “stronger rumor” is that Alito is “going to quit,” conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt told Washington Post reporter Robert Costa on his show Wednesday.

Of course, if Alito retires now, there’s still time to replace him with a conservative justice:

Costa reported earlier that Thomas has not given any indication that he plans to retire. The 72-year-old has been an associate justice on the Supreme Court since 1991. He was nominated by Bush.

One outside Trump political adviser told Costa that Judge Amul Thapar of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit is the favorite of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others if Thomas does decide to retire.

Hewitt said “everybody agrees” with Costa’s reporting on who is favored to replace Thomas should he retire soon.

Stay tuned for more on this developing story.
