Lankford Issues Statement on the Retirement of Justice Breyer

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) today issued a statement following Supreme Court Justice Breyer’s official announcement that he plans to retire later this year:

“President Biden has demonstrated for months that he is intent on pushing his progressive agenda on our nation. Supreme Court Justices should not push an agenda; they should follow the original meaning of the Constitution and the clear intent of the law. Selecting justices should focus on who is going to honor the law from the bench, not who is going to write law while on the bench.”
