Justice Stephen Breyer breaks silence on progressives’ retirement calls

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, the oldest member of the nation’s highest bench at 82, is finally responding to months of calls from the left to retire while Democrats still control the Senate.

Speaking to CNN in an interview published Thursday, Breyer, the most senior liberal on the court, said he was not feeling that pressure, and answered simply “No” when asked whether he had decided when he would step down.
