Justice Stephen Breyer, the Supreme Court nominee from President Joe Biden will be subjected to a Senate hearing. This was announced by Senator Chuck Schumer.
Schumer stated that President Biden’s nominee will be given a prompt hearing by the Senate Judiciary Committee. The nomination would then be reviewed by all United States Senate members and confirmed with the greatest speed.
Biden had pledged during his 2020 presidential campaign that he would appoint a woman of African descent to the Court.
He stated, “I look forwards to making sure there’s at minimum one black woman on Supreme Court to ensure that we get all representation.”
Biden’s nominee will have to appease Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, and Sen. Kyrsten Silene (D-AZ), both of whom are open to Biden’s radical agenda until 2021.
Biden will select a nominee to present in the coming weeks to Senator Dick Durbin, D.IL. Democrats will confirm Biden’s nominee “in approximately one month.”
Breyer’s announcement of his resignation from the Court comes as the GOP gains momentum to regain both the House chamber and the Senate.
