Obviously, the seat to replace the late Antonin Scalia needs to be filled, but this is the first I've heard of a second seat opening up: "Trump's top advisers are anticipating another vacancy early in the president-elect's first term." In light of the ages of Breyer, Ginsberg, and Kennedy (78, 80, and 83, respectively), it was reasonable to expect another seat on the Supreme Court to open up during Trump's term, but "early in the president-elect's first term"? What insider information are these top advisers privy to? And is that information reliable/accurate? An originalist (most use the term "conservative") replacement for Scalia won't change the fundamental balance of the court because you can't get much more originalist than Antonin Scalia. Since the iffy 5-4 conservative balance would be maintained (Kennedy is labeled a conservative yet occasionally votes with the liberal faction), Senate Dems would be wise to keep their powder dry. The same is true if this second vacancy turns out to be one of the conservatives. But if the vacancy is Kennedy, expect fireworks. And if the vacancy is one of the four liberals, expect the Fourth of July times a zillion. Does anybody have any other information on the likelihood/timing of this second vacancy or which Justice would be the one stepping down?
