June or early July will mark the end of this court term. While campaigning for president in 2020, Biden committed to appointing a black woman to the top court.

‘The president has stated and reiterated his commitment to nominating a black woman to the Supreme Court and certainly stands by that,’ Jen Psaki stated during her daily press briefing.

Biden did not comment on who he may nominate for the bench, noting that Mr. Breyer has not yet officially announced his retirement.

At a White House event on Wednesday Biden stated ‘There have been no announcements from Justice Breyer. ‘Let him make whatever statement he’s going to make, and I’ll be happy to talk about it later.’

The list of possibles include the worse case scenario of Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner of Georgia who is the sister of voting-rights advocate Stacey Abrams. With Biden go full radical mode, we believe he will select Judge Abrams so that she can wage war from the highest court on the American people.

Additional options are federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson who issued the ‘presidents are not kings’ ruling, Leondra Kruger of California’s Supreme Court and J. Michelle Childs of South Carolina who has the support of Rep. Jim Clyburn.

NBC reported on Jackson’s ruling which dealt with Trump documents regarding events on January 6 that she “sided with the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot by refusing to block the release of scores of White House documents from the Trump administration. The ruling from Judge Tanya S. Chutkan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia means the first batch of disputed documents is set to be turned over to the House select committee by Friday.”

MSNBC further reported that “The federal judge [Jackson] seemed wholly unimpressed with Team Trump’s legal arguments, explaining in her ruling that the former president “does not acknowledge the deference owed to the incumbent President’s judgment. His position that he may override the express will of the executive branch appears to be premised on the notion that his executive power ‘exists in perpetuity.’ But Presidents are not kings, and Plaintiff is not President.”

Breyer is on track to announce his candidacy alongside Biden as early as tomorrow, CNN reports.

It has been rumored that Breyer is under pressure to step down in order to allow Biden to appoint his replacement. He is one of the three remaining liberal justices and is the oldest member of the court.

In the last year of Barack Obama’s administration, many liberal activists thought Ruth Bader Ginsburg should have stepped down from the Supreme Court due to her significant health issues, including a bout with pancreatic cancer.

In 2013, Obama invited her to lunch to gauge her feelings about retiring, fearing Democrats would lose the 2014 midterms. Ginsburg refused to retire, remaining on the bench. Her seat was filled by a conservative nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, put forward by then President Trump, when Ginsburg died in 2020, moving the court further to the right.

Biden was informed of Breyer’s retirement intention last week, according to Politico. He said he would follow up with an official letter.

Biden may appoint a successor who could serve for several decades after Breyer’s retirement after serving on the court for more than 27 years. The justice selected by Biden should maintain the court’s current 6-3 split between conservatives and liberals.

During the confirmation process, his pick is expected to move quickly through the system.

Democratic senators promise a fast vote so that a nomination can be confirmed before the November midterms should Republicans win control of the Senate.

As soon as Breyer formally announces his decision to step down, Biden is expected to nominate a successor who can be ready to serve as soon as the new term begins Oct. 3.

Schumer, the Senate Dem leader, stated that Biden’s pick would be confirmed with ‘all deliberate speed.’

‘President Biden’s nominee will receive a prompt hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee, and will be considered and confirmed by the full United States Senate with all deliberate speed,’ Schumer proclaimed in a statement on Wednesday.

Once Breyer declares his retirement, Biden may nominate his replacement, and Senate Democrats may hold hearings this summer even if Breyer doesn’t officially step down until then.

Since he served as the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the president is well acquainted with the confirmation process and has presided over many confirmation hearings.

Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed exactly a month after Trump nominated her in the Senate by Republicans rushing to get her approved before the 2020 election.

Many Republicans seem to agree that Biden will get his choice of a high court judge.

Lindsey Graham, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee put out a statement that read in part: ‘If all Democrats hang together — which I expect they will — they have the power to replace Justice Breyer in 2022 without one Republican vote in support.’

It is possible for the GOP to slow down the nomination – as Democrats did during the confirmation process for Barrett: demand all senators be physically present in the Senate chamber; force roll-call votes; and boycott the vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee to force the majority party to break Senate rules.

Although these tactics may cause delays, Biden’s nomination is unlikely to be blocked.

Mitch McConnell did not rule out blocking the president’s choice.

‘We don’t even know who the nominee is yet. So that’s something the president has the opportunity to make should there be a vacancy and Justice Breyer will determine when and if there’s a vacancy,’ he said to reporters.

According to a New York Times article in August, Justice Breyer was struggling with the question of when he should step down.

‘There are many things that go into a retirement decision,’ he told the paper.

Following this, he remembered some advice offered by Justice Antonin Scalia.

‘He said, ‘I don’t want somebody appointed who will just reverse everything I’ve done for the last 25 years,’ Breyer. ‘That will inevitably be in the psychology’ of his decision.’

‘I don’t think I’m going to stay there till I die — hope not,’ he concluded.

During his presidential campaign, Biden vowed to appoint a black woman to the Supreme Court.

‘As president, I’d be honored, honored to appoint the first African American woman. Because it should look like the country. It’s long past time,’ Biden said in February of 2020.
