A retirement rumor about Clarence Thomas led to one stunning answer

Rumors that Clarence Thomas would retire from the Supreme Court swirled for the last year.

That speculation heated up yesterday after a bombshell report in The Washington Post.

And this retirement rumor about Clarence Thomas led to one stunning answer.

Washington Post reporter Robert Costa reported that some of Trump’s aides believed Clarence Thomas was the Supreme Court Justice most likely to retire.

Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino told Breitbart News Tonight that there was no way Thomas would retire right now.

“Every year, around this time, we start hearing some of the same rumors. You heard them last year, the same ones. From my perspective — and I know Justice Thomas well, I clerked for him — I can tell you [with] one hundred percent certainty, that rumor, there is nothing to it,” Severino began.

“I hear [these rumors] regularly every year or so, and that gives me serious pause as to the rumors about Justice Alito, as well, because it seems like it’s the same sources. People love to speculate, especially around the end of the Supreme Court term, but most of the time I think it turns out to be nothing more than rumor.”

Summertime is usually when retirement rumors surface.

The court is done for the year and all of Washington, D.C. speculates that an administration would like to see long time justices from other Presidents retire so they can put their own stamp on the court with younger, more ideologically aligned nominees.

But Clarence Thomas has said on record he plans to serve at least 20 more years on the Supreme Court.

And although his wife is a conservative activist closely aligned with the Trump administration few believe Thomas would actually step down.

    Thomas is probably the best one left on the court he would be hard to replace but Ben
    Would be OK if he would take the job.

    Texas Tea Partier. I always thought that all journalists had a puppy named: Official Rumor, and a cat named: Anonymous Sources. I didn’t know that they conspired with each other. That makes sense though.

  4. Larry Turman says:

    Justice THOMAS IS A WONDERFUL , HONEST MAN. STEADFAST AND MORAL. WOULD BE HARD TO REPLACE. THERE ARE MANY MORE BLACK PEOPLE LIKE HIM. KEEP UP THE OUTSTANDING WORK . FOR AS LONG AS YOU WANT.

    Hey Bernardo. The constitution wasn’t meant to constrain man, it was written to constrain government. Like Ginsburg, Satamayor, Kegan, you know , the expantionists, you know, the ones that think like MARXSITS. It’s clear that you don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. You have benefited from all the good Donald Trump has done for America and you still bad mouth him. If the the liberal, marxists dems gain control this Fall I guess it’ll make you happy for all America to look like Minneapolis, or Seattle, or New York, or Chicago, ey Bernardo?

    Liberalism (a front for Communism) continues to stir the sewer base of their voting constituents.

    That old crone RBG needs to go first as she continues to chase death and refuses to leave; as she continues to skips sessions far more than anyone else but of her ill health is on full displace. Satan’s come a knocking, Ruthie and you cannot stop the inevitable, we all die.

  8. Texas Tea Partier says:

    Two guys were sitting at their computer screens writing for the Washington Post. One sent a message to the other saying he would be the anonymous source for this rumor. That is about how these things get started kids!

  9. Bernaldo says:

    Better he should wait until we remove the Trump cancer so that Justice Thomas can be replaced with a judge who takes an expansive view of the Constitution and, understands that it was written by men who wanted to expand and protect human rights, not constrain them.

  10. Rusty Shamrock says:

    Be interesting to find out how many of these “aides” actually are or if it’s self proclaimed individuals or if they exist out of the “reporters” minds.

  11. Ben Matthews says:

    And they’re not putting him on tax-payer, funded ‘life-support’ like Ginsburg…really? No more ‘zombies’ on SCOTUS? Why?

  12. Leftshot says:

    Gossip abounds from the leftist media. They show their subversive tendencies every day. On this one. gossip mentioning Thomas and Alito, but not Ginsburg–ever. Even with her having the most serious health and age concerns? Really???

  13. Keith says:

    These are not leaks from the WH they are speculation by the media to drum up a voting group. The only SC justice that should return is RBG. We call Joe Biden sleepy, then is the dream master, because she is asleep more than awake even when at work. But no talk of her retiring, makes you wonder who is starting the rumors…..

  14. renato says:

    THAT IS A PLAIN GOSSIP AND I HOPE IT IS NOT TRUE AND THAT MAN IS A PURE CONSERVATIVE
    AND HONEST THAT WHY A LOT PEOPLE SUPPORTED JUSTICE THOMAS.

  15. Dennis says:

    As the only “real” conservative left on the bench, we’d better do all we can to convince him to keep working for us!

  16. Rumors and more rumors ! The President has to STOP these leaks by his “aides” ! I have never seen so many leaks from the Whitehouse EVER !! Time to identify who these people are and FIRE them immediately !!

  17. Elizabeth says:

    PLEASE do not buy any of this garbage ,I do not think neither of Supreme Court judges would even think about retirement right now ,so we have to vote coming November 3-rd to safe this Great country of ours!!!!!
