Watch: Dems Panic! Congressman & Senator Demand SCOTUS Resignation BEFORE The Midterms
Democrats know their time is short and that it’s likely they are going to get their clocks cleaned in 2022.
As the window narrows the left is doing everything to hold onto the power they have and the far-left wants to make sure they get a young justice on nominated before 2022. The only way to do that is to pressure Supreme court Justice Stephen Breyer, 83, into retirement.
During an appearance on CNN, Congressman Ted Lieu, said he wants Justice Breyer to retire before the midterms.

On a side note, notice that Rep. Lieu attacks the Trump administration for abuses inside the DOJ but never mentioned the abuses the Obama DOJ took part in monitoring the press.
Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse is also demanding that Justice Breyer retire as well.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez initiated Breyer retire after she told CNN that she agrees with her colleague Rep. Mondaire Jones and believes Justice Breyer should step down.
“There’s no question that Justice Breyer, for whom I have great respect, should retire at the end of this term. My goodness, have we not learned our lesson?” Jones told Cheddar in April.
“I believe Rep. Jones has a point,” Ocasio-Cortez told CNN’s Dana Bash on Sunday.
“I would give more thought to it, but I’m inclined to say yes,” she said.
Justice Breyer was appointed to the court in 1994 by former President Bill Clinton and is the oldest judge on the court.
Democrats are jealous that President Trump was able to fill three seats while in office and they want to install a young radical to the high court before the Republicans take over.
