Ted Cruz Drops a Bombshell on CPAC
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz anticipates another vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court will arise in a matter of months.
“I think we’ll have another Supreme Court vacancy this summer,” Cruz said at the Conservative Political Action Conference Thursday. “If that happens, as much as the left is crazy now, they will go full Armageddon meltdown because the next vacancy is where we’ll have the ability to act and restore basic constitution protections.”Though Cruz was not more specific, as a former law clerk to Chief Justice William Rehnquist, he enjoys access to a network of former clerks privy to the plans of their former bosses.
Rumors have abounded since fall 2016 that Justice Anthony Kennedy may seriously be mulling retirement.
This could be big. It could be Justice Kennedy retiring. Perhaps Senator Cruz assumes Ruth Bader Ginsburg will make it official and admit that she's actually dead. Who knows? Either way, we're excited. The court could use another conservative committed to strict interpretation of the Constitution.
