Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar tells CNN’s Dana Bash that the Supreme Court’s decision on the Texas abortion law adds new urgency to a possible retirement by liberal Justice Stephen Breyer.
KLOBUCHAR: “Well, I still am. And you can see why. I don’t think this court is going to change any time in the near future. But, again, practically, as I look at it, I think what is the best way to get to a result that’s the right policy that’s consistent with where the American people are, that will not wreak havoc in this country. And to me the best thing is to get rid of the filibuster. But that is an option, and President Biden has a commission in place right now that is considering it.”
