Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas just shook the entire nation with a major retirement announcement.
Thomas was asked who he would pick to speak at his retirement while at a Pepperdine School of Law dinner. Thomas bluntly responded, “I’m not retiring.”
Thomas also indicated that he’s planning to stay on the bench for the next 30 years, which would make him the longest-serving judge in Supreme Court history.
Justice Thomas is well known for being staunchly conservative and remarkably quiet. When he speaks, the world listens.
The 70-year-old judge was appointed to the Supreme Court by George H.W. Bush in 1991 and shows no signs of slowing down.
Rumors have been swirling that Thomas could be planning to retire in order to allow President Trump to replace him with a younger, conservative judge. Thomas destroyed the rumors today, ending the possibility of replacing him anytime in the near future.
