President Joe Biden told reporters that he would have “more to say later” about Justice Stephen Breyer’s retirement.
“There has been no announcement from Justice Breyer—let him make whatever statement he wants to make, and I’m happy to talk about it later,” he said.
The president was asked to comment on the news of the liberal justice’s retirement right after several media outlets reported it and before a White House event scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
White House said earlier that they don’t have yet have any comment on Breyer’s retirement.
“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. We have no additional details or information to share from White House,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki wrote in a Twitter post.
