TMZ posted video Thursday of a brief interview with retiring Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, with Breyer saying that fellow Justice Clarence Thomas is “fine.” Breyer did not say whether Thomas has been released from the D.C. hospital where he was admitted.
Justice Thomas was hospitalized last Friday after he experienced flu-like symptoms. Turns out it was an infection, which was being treated with IV antibiotics.
The Supreme Court issued a statement Sunday saying Thomas was expected to be released in a day or two but has given no further update except to say Thomas does not have COVID.
Breyer was interviewed as he went to dine at Cafe Milano in Georgetown. Asked about Thomas, Breyer said, “I think he’s fine.” Beyer’s statement on Thomas is consistent with what a source familiar with Thomas’ condition told TGP this week.
Breyer declined to comment on the contentious Senate confirmation hearing for his replacement, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, saying, “Their politics is not my affair. My affair is done.”
