REPORT: Breyer wasn’t ready to announce retirement today

Shannon Bream with Fox News is reporting that Justice Breyer wasn’t ready to announce his retirement today, that someone jumped the gun on the announcement:

She clarified to say that ‘upset’ might be too strong a word, but that he was surprised by the early reveal:

I wonder if someone was worried that Breyer might change his mind and made the announcement for him to ensure his retirement ahead of the midterms. There was huge pressure on him to retire and it wouldn’t surprise me if that’s how it went down.
