Comey For Supreme Court Justice?
By Andrew Ramonas | May 13, 2022 6:29 pm

Former Deputy Attorney General James Comey, who stood up against the Bush administration on domestic eavesdropping, is being floated around the White House as a candidate to replace Supreme Court Justice David Souter, Politico reported this afternoon.

Comey is “the sort of unconventional choice – someone who’s not a federal appeals-court judge – that key senators, and some administration officials, have been urging President Obama to consider,” Politico said.

Obama is still in the process of winnowing down the pool of more than a dozen potential candidates for the lifetime appointment. We previously reported that another one of Main Justice’s own, Solicitor General Elena Kagan, is also in the mix to replace Souter.

The Senate Democratic leader describes the Republicans' refusal to hold hearings on President Obama's eventual Supreme Court nominee "historically unbelievable and historically unprecedented."
