White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki responded to the news on Wednesday that Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is reportedly preparing to retire from the nation’s highest court.

“It has always been the decision of any Supreme Court Justice if and when they decide to retire, and how they want to announce it, and that remains the case today,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “We have no additional details or information to share from @WhiteHouse.”

Democrat President Joe Biden is reportedly expected to officially announce Breyer’s retirement from the Supreme Court on Thursday.

“Breyer, 83, the oldest member of the court, was appointed in 1994 by President Bill Clinton,” The New York Times reported. “After the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 2020 and the appointment of Justice Amy Coney Barrett by President Donald J. Trump, he became the subject of an energetic campaign by liberals who wanted him to step down to ensure that Mr. Biden could name his successor while Democrats control the Senate.”
