Dem Rep. Jones Calls on Justice Breyer to Retire: ‘My Goodness, Have We Not Learned Our Lesson?’

‘There’s no question that Justice Breyer, for whom I have great respect, should retire at the end of this term’

EXCERPT:

JONES: “There is no question that Justice Breyer for whom I have great respect should retire at the end of this term. I mean my goodness, have we not learned our lesson? And -- and so I'm really excited about the opportunity for this president, President Biden to appoint and then for the Senate to confirm jurists on the Supreme Court who are not hostile to our democracy, who will adjudicate cases that will protect and preserve voting rights and that will respect the will of Congress frankly.”
