The court-packing left won’t like this.
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer just hired four new law clerks.
This signals that he will not be retiring soon.
BBG: Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer hires four new law clerks

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has hired four law clerks for the fall term, the court confirmed to Bloomberg on Friday, signaling that he may not have plans to retire soon.
The move comes amid calls from progressive activists and politicians for Breyer, 82, to retire so President Joe Biden can nominate a successor while the Senate is still controlled by Democrats.
Breyer, the oldest justice on the bench, has made no public comments on his retirement, but the new hires likely suggest that he does not intend to step down in the near future. The Supreme Court’s latest term ended earlier this week.
Remember, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would not confirm a Supreme Court Justice if a spot opened up in 2024.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) signaled Monday that Republicans, if they win back control of the upper chamber, wouldn’t advance a Supreme Court nominee if a vacancy occurred in 2024, the year of the next presidential election.
“I think it’s highly unlikely â€” in fact, no, I don’t think either party, if it were different from the president, would confirm a Supreme Court nominee in the middle of an election,” McConnell told radio host Hugh Hewitt.
