If conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt is correct President Trump could get another Supreme Court pick.
Hewitt is predicting the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito.
According to The Washington Examiner:
Conservative Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito may be eyeing retirement.
The “stronger rumor” is that Alito is “going to quit,” conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt told Washington Post reporter Robert Costa on his show Wednesday.
He mentioned this in response to Costa’s report that said aides to President Trump believe Clarence Thomas, a conservative justice appointed by President George H.W. Bush, is the justice most likely to retire this year.
“Justice Thomas will never quit,” Hewitt added.
Justice Alito was appointed by George W. Bush in 2005. The Associate Justice replaced Sandra Day O’Connor
