Senate Democrat pressures Sotomayor to retire from Supreme Court: ‘Graveyards are full of indispensable people’

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) is publicly pressuring Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to consider retiring.

Even though Sotomayor, 69, has shown no interest in retiring, the far-left Democratic Party I started calling her more and more To step down. They want the outsider to leave while President Joe Biden still has a chance to name her replacement, bearing in mind that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg chose not to retire. Ginsburg’s decision meant that Donald Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett, who died suddenly in September 2020, to replace her.

After all, progressives fear history could repeat itself, and Blumenthal says there are “lessons” to be learned.

“I have a lot of respect for Justice Sotomayor. I have a lot of respect for her,” Blumenthal said. Said NBC News. “But I think she really needs to consider the competing factors.”

“We should learn the lesson, and there is no mystery here as to what the lesson should be,” he continued. “It’s an old saying. Graveyards are full of people who are indispensable, including those of us in this physical body.”

Blumenthal, who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, added that “judges must make personal judgments about their own health and level of energy.” But he cautioned: “We must also keep in mind the larger national interest and public interest in ensuring that courts think like the United States and are able to think like the United States.”

NBC News claimed that these comments show that “Democratic senators are not joining in the call” for Mayor Outside to retire.

And the news media included statements by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (DR.I.) and Senator Maisie Hirono (D-Hawaii) testifying to that fact, but Blumenthal’s comments The meaning is not subtle.

In fact, it’s obvious. Mr. Blumenthal thinks Mr. Sotomayor should retire now, but he doesn’t want to say that outright.

Look at Blumenthal trying to sell the glamorous life of a former Supreme Court justice in the very same story.

“Life is going pretty well for retired judges,” he told NBC News. “They continue to work on the case and are receiving compensation comparable to what they were receiving previously. She is a highly respected intellect and person with an outstanding track record. There will be many opportunities for him to continue his public service.”

Meanwhile, the White House has not joined the far-left movement calling for Soto’s resignation.

“This is a personal decision,” spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre said Wednesday.
