Could a Supreme Court Justice be resigning this summer? That’s what both Senators Chuck Grassley and Ted Cruz believe. In separate interviews, they both seemed to have inside information about a member of the Court and the possibility one of them will step down.
Via Fox News:
“I would expect a resignation this summer,” Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Iowa’s Muscatine Journal.
Grassley, R-Iowa, said there was a “rumored” retirement in the offing, though he wouldn’t disclose which justice was considering stepping down.
Grassley’s comments echo those made in February by fellow Judiciary Committee member and former Supreme Court litigator Sen. Ted Cruz.
“I think we’ll have another Supreme Court vacancy this summer,” said Cruz, R-Texas. “If that happens, as much as the left is crazy now, they will go full Armageddon meltdown.”
If the Senators are correct then this is amazing news. Even if it is a conservative judge it would ensure replacing an older judge with a younger judge that can serve many additional years.
Donald Trump has already proven that he will appoint the most conservative minded individuals to the bench. Trump supporters should be highly excited about this development.
