"Today is the last day the U.S. Supreme Court issues opinions, the court will decide how much authority the EPA has to regulate emissions from power plants. Another opinion will impact immigration. Also today, justice Stephen Breyer retires and will formally pass the torch to catan Ji Brown Jackson, becoming the first black woman on the high court. The death toll from one of the deadliest human smuggling operations in U.S. history climbed to 53 in San Antonio. The migrants were found in a sweltering tractor trailer for men of in charged. Meanwhile, the political blame game intensifies, Texas governor Greg Abbott, says President Biden must do more at the border. Republican governor Abbott says he feels the loss of lives could have been prevented if border patrol agents had more resources. It is the deadliest migrant smuggling incident on U.S. soil. And it's on President Biden's watch. But bear county sheriff Javier Salazar a Democrat, accuses Abbott of politicizing the tragedy while wasting manpower and resources on the border security mission operation lone star. Sheriff Salazar says Abbott's operation has brought no good to his community. To me, it just seems like a big campaign stunt that billions of billions of dollars are being poured into it and for what? Sheriff Salazar spoke on ABC. President Biden is wrapping up his time at the NATO summit in Madrid. It comes as NATO will beef up its presence in Eastern Europe in the wake of the Russian action in Ukraine, British prime minister Boris Johnson. What we're also doing with the Eastern European countries with the Baltics is offering long-term support partnership to help them build up their defenses and make sure they can repel any attack immediate. Prime minister Johnson, U.S. senator Patrick Leahy has broken his hip after a fall at his home his office says the 82 year old Vermont lawmaker will undergo surgery to repair it.

"Welcome to the second hour of balance of power. I'm David Weston. Well, tomorrow will be the last day of the term of the court. We know that, in part because we've just heard the justice Stephen Breyer will retire tomorrow at noon and he said he wasn't going to do that until the term was over. One of the two cases remaining is a very important one potentially involving the EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency, climate regulation, and perhaps even more regulation in a broader sense. Take us through that decision as it comes down tomorrow. We welcome now, Jonathan Adler. He's professor at the case western reserve school of law, where he is founding director of the Burke center for environmental law. So welcome back, professor. It's great to have you here. Take us through this case, at least briefly, because I know it's a pretty complicated one. Just procedurally the way it's been up and back and all around. Yes, I mean, the procedure of this case goes back to the Obama administration, but the key issue for people to understand is that this case is about the scope of the environmental protection agencies authority to regulate greenhouse gases from power plants, which are a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions. The states and others challenging the EPA essentially argue that the EPA's authority is limited to the sort of pollution control measures that have traditionally been applied under the clean air act. Scrubbers or other sorts of pollution control equipment. The Obama administration and the Biden administration would like a broader understanding of EPA's authority to allow for things like the encouragement of fuel switching and substituting say solar and wind for coal production within the electricity sector. And so the real debate is how broad EPA's authority is there. And the courts this judgment there, its decision there will have a big effect on the Biden administration's ability to achieve its climate change policy goals. So a professor at its core is it a statutory interpretation question that is to say, what did Congress say the EPA was authorized to do? I guess under the clean air act. Yeah, so the phrase in the act that's of central importance is the best system of emission reduction and is that system talking about, again, traditional types of pollution controls that are applied at the source of the sort that the EPA mandates on a wide range of industrial facilities for a wide range of pollutants or when we talk about a system of reduction can we also talk about the electricity sector itself as a broader system. Because certainly one way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is to fire coal fired power plants less often use more natural gas use more alternative energy sources. And so it's really focused on that language, some of the other language in the statute. How broad of authority does the EPA have there? Noting that EPA has never tried to use this language in this broader way before. Now, this is obviously an important decision potentially for climate, particularly when it comes to clear and clean act, air, regulation by the EPA of this particular area. But what about larger ramifications? Because we hear talk that the court, depending on how it decides in what it says, could have implications beyond just the specifics of this case, beyond even the APA. That's certainly true. So one of the issues in the case is something we often refer to as the major questions doctrine. The basic idea is that when Congress enacts a complicated statute, like the clean air act, we understand that the Environmental Protection Agency may be asked to fill in some of the details, some of the things that are left ambiguous are unclear because the EP is the expert agency. But what happens when the EPA instead of just filling in details wants to adopt or implement a broad new program different from the sort that it's done in the past? Does that sort of major initiative require more explicit congressional authorization? The court in recent years has been moving in the direction of seeing that agencies need more explicit authorization when they want to do something big like that. And if the court embraces that principle more broadly in this case, as it might, that could have implications for the securities and exchange commissions proposal to require greater climate reporting from a publicly traded company. It could have implications on the ability of other agencies to use preexisting regulatory authority to address new problems, not just climate change, but perhaps other sorts of problems as well. So I'll be looking very closely at the rationale. The court uses because if it embraces this sort of major questions idea, that could have ramifications across climate policy more broadly, but also in era of legislative dysfunction, the ability of agencies to use old statutes to address new problems. Now, this all assumes that Congress has the constitutional authority to delegate to the EPA. They just have to be explicit about it. What about the possibility that some of the Supreme Court might say, you know what? That shouldn't be given up to an independent agency at all. It should be left with a political branch. She's a Congress should do it or the executive branch should do it. Yeah, certainly some of the justices on the court right now justice Gorsuch in particular definitely believe in that principle. We call the non delegation doctrine. I don't think the court is going to reach that principle here. Given the complexity of the case and the way it was presented. But I do think that concern, the idea that Congress shouldn't be able to give an agency a blank check is something that motivates the court towards this major questions idea I spoke of. And the idea being, is that Congress can't and shouldn't give an agency a blank check. And so if an agency takes a statute that was written 30, 40, 50 years ago and suddenly repurposes it for something new, that looks like the sort of thing that would violate this non delegation principle. And so we want to interpret the statute in a way that avoids that problem. So I would be surprised if the court embraces the non delegation doctrine directly in this case, but I would not be at all surprised if non delegation concerns push the court to a drop to adopt a narrower understanding of the EPA's authority. Yes, but very interesting in what I heard you say professor, even if it does that, it would be prospectively for new regulations. It wouldn't go back in time and say you shouldn't have done that in the past. For the most part, although there are relatively recent regulations or things that are underway now that could be affected. The one that I think is most readily apparent is the security and exchange commissions proposal to mandate greater climate reporting. That's a new use of the SEC's preexisting

Supreme Court Rules Against Boston in Christian Flag Case

"Overshadowed by this was the Supreme Court ruling yesterday that the city of Boston, Massachusetts, violated the constitution by refusing to fly a local organization's Christian flag in front of city hall, though it had flown other groups flags. This is a tremendous win for religious liberty in America. Justice Stephen Breyer, this was unanimous. This was 9 to zero. Stephen Breyer said we conclude that Boston's flag raising program does not express government speech as a result the city's refusal to let the group fly their flag based on its religious viewpoint violated the free speech clause of the First Amendment. How about that? A constitutional ruling by the Supreme Court? Well, that's what overturning roe V wade would be because it's never been constitutional.

"Wednesday justice Stephen Breyer took part in his last Supreme Court arguments of his nearly three decades on the bench They didn't showcase the fantastic hypotheticals Breyer is known for but they did include some other classic briar questions Joining me is Carl Tobias a professor at the university of Richmond law school What was his greatest impact on the court Well I think it was a whole mix of different ideas but I think his collegiality and his willingness to probe the issues in all cases that came before the court and the quality of his questioning during oral argument were all important parts of his legacy but of course he was an expert in administrative law and regulation as a faculty member at Harvard and on the first circuit and just astute observer of the constitution and the branches of government and how it was helpful for the court to be able to probe separation of powers issues and all of the insights that he had about understanding American government and history We were expecting some of his fantastical hypotheticals in his last oral argument but we didn't hear those but we did hear a mask the lawyers as he's done so many times Am I right or wrong No other justice frames questions that way you know sort of challenging Tell me what's wrong here Exactly And sometimes the lawyers would engage and other times they wouldn't but he had a reputation for asking probing questions and that was valuable We've also had a great sense of humor dry wit and a number of other attributes that make him a great justice But his collegiality and his willingness and capacity for trying to find practical solutions to very difficult issues was critical and very important to the court for a long period of time The chief gave Raya moving an emotional tribute He said for 28 years this has been his arena for remarks profound and moving questions challenging and insightful and hypotheticals downright silly They've been on the court together for almost two decades What will they be missing when he retires Well attributes I talked about to some extent trying to find practical solutions to complicated issues and a very deep understanding of the American government and how it works But also probably on day to today basis being so collegial to his colleagues and always respecting their viewpoints and trying to find the best answers to exceedingly difficult questions So let's turn now to future judges The White House announced the first batch of planned judicial nominations in more than two months And it featured several candidates with prosecutorial experience and law firm partners Those are the types of roles that are often found on courts but Biden had made this push to nominate lawyers with public defender and civil rights background Do you think he's trying to nominate people that will get through faster or just balancing out his nominations Well I think both I mean I think he was and we saw just yesterday another match of 5 that looks somewhat more like his earlier one People who have been federal public defenders So I think we'll see a mix by mostly I think concerned about the midterms and basically trying to seat as many as possible of pellet court and district court judges in those vacancies as can do before the midterm election and probably after the midterm election in a lame duck session And I think the administration is making the assumption that the Democrats may lose the majority in the Senate in November and so want to be as successful as they can in that period of time And there are many in the pipeline many are coming forward from the committee and are on the floor now And I think they will move as expeditiously as they can They are hearing again yesterday for 5 historic nominees all 5 were women who are people of color and one was a lawyer doing civil rights work for entire career another was the first Bangladeshi nominee for district court and the first female Muslim who would sit on a district court and others who had been engaged in federal public defender or related types of work and so we're seeing a bit of it back to the lower federal courts circuit and district and moving everything as fast as possible in the judiciary committee I expect that hearing every two weeks and I think Durbin is committed to that and moving people to votes and then onto the floor Thanks Carl That's Carl Tobias a professor at the university of Richmond law school Coming up next on the Bloomberg law show one of the most high profile white collar prosecutions in years And later the Supreme Court allows a selective high school diversity policy I'm Jim Grasso and you're listening to.

Matthew Whitaker: Republicans Must Block Biden's Supreme Court Nominee

"Matthew Whitaker wrote a real, real important piece at Fox News dot com, the former acting AG in the Trump administration. He says, following justice Stephen Breyer's retirement, Biden nominated judge katangi, Brown Jackson, a progressive favorite with a troubling legal record and well documented allegiance to left wing causes to take his seat on the high court. Despite what some establishment Republicans might think, her nomination raises all kinds of causes for concern. As NBC News reported because the fact is, Democrats don't even attempt to abide by the impression that they care about fundamental constitutional rights. Or will nominate judges who render sound constitutional judgments. She's the latest example of this trend. Based on every available indication, a justice Jackson on the Supreme Court would serve not as a neutral interpreter of the constitution, but rather as a reliable rubber stamp for many of progressive's most prized policy goals, consider what NBC News called her. NBC News said, Brown Jackson fits well with the Democratic Party and the progressive movements agenda indeed. Far left advocacy groups persistently encouraged Biden to consider her as the replacement for Breyer. She's who they want. And her record, she has blocked the Trump administration's executive orders aimed at holding federal employees accountable. A decision that was unanimously reversed by the D.C. circuit, she stymied president Trump's ability to deport illegals. She probably doesn't even call them illegal or alien in her decisions regarding immigration.

Pellegrini this is Bloomberg All right Denise thanks Let's get to our guest and Gerard is with us for the half hour Dan is senior multi asset strategist at state street He's on the line from Boston Dan Thanks for being with us It's really easy to be kind of the Monday morning quarterback to look back over 2021 and to take apart the narrative that inflation was going to be transitory Lo and behold we're dealing with an annual increase in CPI for the month of January a little hotter than forecast 7 and a half percent That's a very very high rate We saw what Jim bullard had to say today and how it rattled markets How do we get out of the situation Gracefully Oh great So first of all thanks for having me back great to be with you at grace he is a tough one This is going to be trip And I think the reason for this is that I don't think low rates has been the primary influence on higher inflation And I think a lot of people agree with that This is not a typical cycle where overheating is defined by this overextension of credit This is I think a very important point Typically in that late cycle of an expansion you have deteriorating balance sheets overextension of credit providing the fuel for the overheating So rate hikes make sense because they pull back on borrowing lending But that's not what we have here Nobody can really say that this is an over extension of credit in too much borrowing This is about the supply chain So do we even if gold is right and the fed starts raising rates by that extreme does it really do anything to a supply induced inflation issue We know what we need to do And that is probably rain back all the balance sheet expansion but the fed has much much less confidence about what happens during quantitative timing And I think that that's what led us to this quandary here Dan hello Singapore messes you Wanted to ask you as well in terms of whether or not you're seeing the market pricing or these risks in and I guess how you hedge against this Well miss you guys as well Juliet Thank you And I think that there is probably some more some more damage to be done in the bond market and even if it belong end is probably capped a bit because I think there will be continue to be reach for yield reach for safety in the U.S. U.S. yield what we will see is probably more spreads widening out a bit more We continue to see that on days like this of high yield getting really the damage But how do you hedge whether or not it's rates causing inflation we know that inflation is real and it will persist for some time So inflation hedges I think stick with energy stick with the industrial metals stick with the commodities themselves and the stocks and potentially some of the Latin American inflation hedges as well which are starting to see investor interest again That's what we're going to be for a while So I was looking at some of the categories in the CPI report fuel oil up more than 46% gasoline up 40% So what if and I know it's not a part of the mandate per se but what if some of this is tied to persistent weakness in the dollar And if rates were to move up and the dollar becomes stronger that would in turn have the way it's correlated to energy prices it would reduce the price of crude oil isn't that something that we need to consider the behavior of the currency and all of this Absolutely We do need to consider the behavior of the currency I think that for now however it's potentially a weaker dollar that is more likely it's reducing overweight to where investors have these massive overweight And that story that you've just mentioned might be one down the road a little bit if we hit a real gross slowdown in a real policy mistake But I think for the time being the risk is still not just higher oil but that investors start rebuilding those underweight positions they had for so long in energy stocks and energy equities which don't necessarily need consistently higher oil prices to outperform Where are they reducing the reducing their holdings in U.S. equities reducing European equities to some extent and in technology Those are the major overweights And it's not necessarily that they're fearing that the growth hits so much I think what they're fearing is the uncertainty which means take the large debt back down to benchmark Even some of the people that we have talked to on this program admit that the fed got it wrong they're behind the curve But they seem to be confident at the same time that we're going to see declining inflation in the second half of the year but we continue the conversation I'd like to get your view on that idea And then this notion that hey because the American equity market is so richly valued in many cases and if you look at what's happening in China where there.

"Solution to this growing problem But first Supreme Court Justice Stephen breyer announced his retirement at The White House last week reflecting on his service to the great American experiment It's an experiment that's still going on And I'll tell you something You know who we'll see whether that experiment works It's you my friend It's you mister high school students Giving President Biden the opportunity to nominate the first Supreme Court Justice of his presidency I'm going to invite senators from both parties to offer their ideas and points of view I'm also consult with leading scholars and lawyers And I'm fortunate to have advised me in this selection process Vice president Kamala Harris She's an exceptional lawyer former attorney general of the state of California former member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Bloomberg opinion columnist Jonathan Bernstein says breyers retirement offers Biden something else a chance to unite Democrats Is filling breyers seat a break for Biden Yes I think so He's been through a run of bad news stories Most of which are not sort of Biden centric but they're bad stories Overcrowding wave especially So this is a story that gives him a chance to make a lot of his supporters happy He gets to pick a Supreme Court Justice His supporters will almost certainly be happy with whoever he picks And it's sort of normal presidential task He should be able to get his pick confirmed which will again that's a pretty normal thing for president to do but when he's having problems with other legislation in Congress it's always nice to have a win which he should be able to get out of this Yeah so no one is anticipating any real problems because the Democrats have voted in lockstep for Biden's judicial nominees But so what do you make of the complaints from Republicans Well right now before the nominee has been selected they are focusing on the idea that Biden has promised to pick a black woman as his nominee And trying to pretend that that's something exceptional Of course picking a black woman is exceptional Never happened before But pre selecting for political considerations is completely the norm for Supreme Court picks And we've seen before president Reagan campaigned saying that he would pick the first woman to be on the court Bill Clinton certainly decided to pick Ruth Bader Ginsburg because Democrats at that point and never selected a woman both previous black justices thurgood Marshall and clarence Thomas were selected specifically to select a black nominee So there's nothing unusual about this as you go back in time There were Catholic seats and Jewish seats on the court and regional considerations back in the earlier history of the United States were completely normal The presidents would try to find regional balance These days it's more demographic balance But same thing There's nothing unusual Nevertheless that's the complaints that they're making Will it help move the process along if Biden chooses the FrontRunner right now Who is judge catan G Brown Jackson who has been confirmed for the D.C. circuit Recently It seems likely Most Republicans are going to oppose whoever Biden picks But she was confirmed during this Congress So recently just last year And got the votes of three Republicans Susan Collins Lisa Murkowski and Lindsey Graham So it's possible that two or even all three of those Republican senators would support her again It's also possible they wouldn't but again Democrats only need the 50 plus the vice president's tie breaking vote So it's usually said politics shouldn't enter into Supreme Court nominations even though they do But does it seem like congressman James Clyburn is injecting politics into this by openly advocating for a South Carolina judge Politics should enter into this It's a political job The court has always been it's intended to be a political branch of the government just the same as the other two The way that it's elected is different and there are certain standards for how Supreme Court Justices are supposed to act as judges not as politicians But that doesn't mean that it's not a political job It doesn't mean that politics doesn't go into the choices of the justices and politics goes into the actions of the justice It's not a coincidence that they get on the court and all the justices that were nominated by Democrats vote one way and all the ones voted by Republicans vote the other way Of course that doesn't happen a 100% of the time There's plenty of cases that are less divisive politically just like Congress sometimes passes things unanimously Even in the midst of fires and polarization But the idea that the court shouldn't be political is a real mistake of misreading of the constitution and the history of the country So if Biden gets his nominee confirmed to the Supreme Court will it matter in the midterms Most likely not It's nice for you to be able to do something for some constituencies that he hasn't been able to deliver for for example on voting rights where the legislation is stalled in Congress So that might give some enthusiasm to black women for example who might otherwise be lacking in enthusiasm But for the most part this is going to take place in the winter and spring the election is months away and people move on to the next thing very quickly Thanks Jonathan That's

"Been confirmed by our Wolf Blitzer that at 83 years old after 27 years on the Supreme Court justice Stephen breyer the leading liberal on the court he will retire We're still not exactly sure of the timeline but presumably not until the end of this term which ends up usually at the end of June This retirement announcement comes after what has been a persistent drum beat of calls from progressives to retire from the court dating back now just about a year It was about a year ago when the progressive group demand justice actually hired a mobile billboard that drove around Capitol Hill in front of the Supreme Court urging breyer to retire This is just another admission clay that the Supreme Court is now a political institution as much as people like to pretend for the sanctity of our democracy or whatever and depending on the day they either say it is or is not that clearly this was a political move I think it's funny too She says probably I think it's a safe bet clay I think he's probably gonna retire at the end of this term I don't think they're gonna wait until after the midterm elections given Joe Biden's poll numbers But it is also remarkable This guy's 83 years old I know there are 83 rules listing this who could you know run faster than me do more push ups that are an amazing shape and all that But I mean that was even a consideration that he was going to continue on much beyond this is pretty astonishing Well they pushed Ginsburg the left did to retire for a long time And so far as we know breyer has been relatively healthy and Ginsburg refused to step down and then as a result ends up having the opposite party give her give her replacement Amy Coney Barrett And look this has been an issue going back Thurgood Marshall refused to step down and then he ends up dying and his replacement is clarence Thomas right So this is Anthony Kennedy made the choice hey I'm ready to step down I want Trump to be able to replace me Now Stephen breyer is making that decision It's honestly I think a smart move for a Supreme Court Justice to step down and know that his seat if you want to say his or her seat is going to be replaced by the party that nominated them Other people can do these jobs I mean there's a lot of very smart lawyers in the country We all know You know this notion that you have to stay in this role The fact that Nancy you know Nancy Pelosi just announced she's actually running again I mean I'm just wondering Pelosi gonna be a hundred and still showing up on TV and you know telling all the plebes that we should just listen to her while she's got all the mansions lined up behind her It's ridiculous Well I think buck you and I fortunately are still relatively young I think some of these people who end up around those ages are afraid that if they don't have the motivating factor of the job whether it's Nancy Pelosi Stephen breyer this happens in sports a lot where if you step down Joe Paterno and Bear Bryant like you almost immediately die because that's what you're living for I think there's a fear there It's a little morbid but it's dark but I think there is that fear out there You're listening to clay Travis and buck Sexton on the EIB network South Florida's first news with Jimmy cephalo weekday mornings at 6 Your dog is part of the family At rough greens we know the dogs eat live nutrition just like we do There's just one problem For dog food to last it needs to be shelf stable And that means it has no live nutrients The result is your dog's food is dead food Sometimes itching and scratching lack of energy digestive issues they're not medical issues at all but more likely their nutritional deficiencies from eating dead food The good news is you don't have to change your dog's food to improve your dog's health Simply add a scoop of rough greens and make even the best dog food better Rough greens is a powerful supplement that puts into your dog food all the live nutrients they need for superior health With a flavor it'll have them licking the bottom of the bowl We're so confident your dog will love.

"It's been quite the week here in Washington among the week's major political developments the announced retirement of Supreme Court Justice Stephen breyer Democrats are excited about President Biden now fulfilling a campaign promise to nominate a black woman to replace breyer and it's been an incredibly intense and complex week Regarding a potential invasion of Ukraine by Russia And we are joined now live on Skype by Washington week moderator yamiche alcindor Yamiche Supreme Court vacancy always gins up the political parties from those you've been talking with are we looking at a big fight here or It's a great question and thanks for having me on I think that this is obviously going to be a big one for President Biden and for the nation that there's of course very few times where someone is retiring from the Supreme Court President Biden who has sliding poll numbers and who is even losing support in some ways among African Americans and African American women though his support remains very high among that group and among those groups this is a chance for him to be able to say I'm going to put my mark on the Supreme Court I'm going to keep a campaign promise even as we're still dealing as with Democrats with the idea of not getting through voting rights and policing reform here is something I can give It is based on my sources it's going to be very hard for Republicans to try to stop this They might be able to slow down the process But this is a 50 50 Senate with the VP Of course having the tie breaking vote So I think that the things here are going to have to just because of the way that the logistics are going to move forward Now it sure looks like Russia's Vladimir Putin was going to roll his tanks right across the Ukrainian frontier this week but we've gotten some late breaking reporting that Putin plans to attend the Beijing Olympics here in a week and any military action could be delayed until later Regardless how has President Biden handled this situation here in the past several days Well President Biden has really been vocal as well as a number of people in his administration have been vocal with really trying to put Russia on notice and saying that there are going to be real consequences if Russia invades we remember last week or at least before President Biden made a sort of international attention because he talked about a sort of minor incursion and Ukraine came back at the president and saying no that there is no such thing as a minor incursion into Ukraine and the president was very clear that he said if Russia took any more steps to sort of violate the sovereignty of Ukraine that there would be real actions I think it is interesting that today we saw The Pentagon really for the first time confirm that Russia has enough troops needed to really go really deep into Ukraine I also think it's very interesting that we're seeing now U.S. troops on high alert for a possible deployment into Eastern Europe There are a lot of questions around what would it take for us such a deployment habit and what a Russian invasion could look like But think continued in some ways intensify even as you said Vladimir Putin is heading to the Olympics Yummy thank you for your time Have a great show tonight Yamiche alcindor moderator.

Mike Gallagher: Regarding Biden's Supreme Court Nominee, Concede the Battle to Win the War

"When the bombshell announcement was made yesterday, the justice Stephen breyer is retiring from the Supreme Court. I immediately went in my mind to November 8th. What does this do to the midterms? Because whether we like it or not, the next Supreme Court Justice is not going to be a constitution supporting conservative. It's just not. We could dream, it ain't gonna happen. And I kept thinking, how are Republicans going to react to this? How are Republicans tasked with interviewing and interrogating and grilling this pick behave? Very, very important message on the MyPillow text line to start this hour that I agree with. Concede the battle to win the war. If Republicans go nuclear and attack the nominee, they will be exploited because the Democrats will accuse Republicans of being sexist, racist, whatever other hot button, buzzword they can throw

"I'm Joe Matthew in for David Weston We start with breaking news just hearing reports now at this hour that Supreme Court Justice Stephen breyer is set to retire We'll have more for you on this as we learn more throughout the day Uncertainty is the word here today from the Russia Ukraine standoff to the situation with the Federal Reserve as we wait for word from policymakers front and center here We're going to tackle both of these stories today as investors count down to a rate decision and news conference from chair J Powell this afternoon The fed widely expected to signal a march rate hike lift off for more on that we're joined now by Tiffany wilding Pimco North America economist Tiffany thank you for being with us I'd like to hear what your expectations are today We're hearing talk of a potential 50 basis point hike as soon as March Do you expect J Powell will signal that And what would the reaction be Well first Joe thanks for having me on So I'll just cut to the chase We're not expecting the chair to signal a 50 basis point rate hike at the March meeting We think that outcome is actually very unlikely I think there's other policy levers that FOMC could take to tight and monetary policy that would be less abrupt And when we look at the data although labor markets do look tight they look like to be rapidly progressing towards maximum employment inflation obviously is overshot The data doesn't suggest to us that type of abrupt policies necessary as of yet So our expectation is is that you'll have a 25 basis point rate hike in March But the chair probably will signal that you should expect additional interest rates after March So it's not just one and done here It's a path of interest rates And of course in addition they'll probably start to talk more about how the Central Bank is really going to implement QT or the reduction of its balance sheet We've already known from the minutes from the December meeting that it's going to be more aggressive and sooner this hiking cycle relative to the past Tiffany wilding pimcore North America economists thank you for setting the table for us and stay tuned for special coverage of the fed decision coverage beginning at one 30 Eastern Time Bloomberg TV and radio here on Bloomberg We want to get back to our breaking story now as we mentioned right off the top here reports that Supreme Court Justice Stephen breyer is set to retire and were joined by none other than David Weston right now Of course a longtime expert the host of this broadcast and an expert on all things Supreme Court David we've been waiting for this word What does it mean Well it means a shift further ships in the court away from the so called liberal wing Stephen breyer was appointed 94 by Bill Clinton President Bill Clinton to replace Harry blackman and he was one of the mainstays and intellectual leader really of what some people think of the left wing of the court It is an opportunity potentially for President Biden to appoint someone at the same time given where we are in the Senate I don't expect that's going to be an easy thing to do Boy that is something to say David We talk a lot about the Biden agenda and the opposition that he has faced in Congress with such slim majorities for Democrats what kind of a confirmation battle will this set up if he tries to appoint another liberal justice Well the one thing you know for sure Joe is it's not going to happen before November There's no way that's going to happen Remember what happened with Merrick Garland and how long they held that And then that really puts a lot of pressure on the question of the Senate in November And so recently it was thought the Senate would likely remain in democratic hands That's very much I think a question now You would know that as well as I Well considering that everyone saw this coming In fact a lot of people thought this would happen before now David do we have any sense of a short list The type of individual that the president might seek to nominate that might resonate on both sides of the aisles Is there no such thing Well you know for sure one thing Joe from what Joe Biden said as candidate he is going to appoint someone of color And quite possibly a woman You said that very clearly And so I think you need to look at those There are some candidates there's a judge in the district Columbia herself who's thought of as a leading candidate potentially They're going to have to quickly battle all those people and figure out who they can put forward But you know it's going to be somebody diversity The other thing that President Biden has said is he wants a different kind of diversity on the Supreme Court And that is somebody who comes from the background of criminal defense work who's worked with some of the underclass in the country who have had to suffer through the criminal justice process He's concerned that we've had too many academics By the way Steven breyer was a very distinguished professor at Harvard before he was on the first circuit and on the Supreme Court he himself was a Marshall scholar He was a real intellectual is a real intellectual but the President Biden is he wants to go a different direction He wants people who've been things like criminal defenders Considering some of the issues that we have seen go before the court and expect to go before the court roe V wade David is obviously a huge one And then this idea most recently about mandates the osha rule for private sector workers that rule struck down the vaccine or test mandate by the court as it stands now with these decisions be different in any way when the president adds the diversity to the court that you're suggesting or is this going to be one liberal justice for another Well it's hard If in fact they get a liberal justice appointed I think you have to jump over that hurdle because that's not a given I think but it doesn't happen You're right A substitute in one for another But you pick up a very important point potentially particularly for the Bloomberg audience Joe which is justice breyer's background was administrative law He dealt with things like the authority of agencies You saw the striking down the osha rule as you said there's a whole line of cases that are being pressed right now Particularly because it's perceived some of the more conservative justices are more inclined to cut back on the authority of regulatory agencies As we've seen a little bit of already in some of the writings And justice breyer really was an authority in that area You will be losing potentially that authority who really knows the ministry of law Liberal or conservative put that aside really knows that area And I think that may be a battleground going forward to the Supreme Court that would be very important for the Bloomberg audience Yes this year is beginning to take shape for President Biden David We've talked a lot about his legislative agenda which has been severely challenged but we're of course going into some important confirmation hearings for his nominees for the Federal Reserve those three open seats Now we add a Supreme Court Justice and this year is becoming a lot more complicated for a president.

Justice Stephen Breyer Says 'Criteria [Was Not] Met' to Rule on 2020 Election

"I am so disappointed in them. No judge, including the Supreme Court of my United States has had the courage to allow it to be heard. Why was that? Why was it Because they didn't bring a case. I guess that met the normal criteria for being heard. And this is why This justice needed to be seriously challenged if you're going to bring up the subject. Rather than an attack on Trump. Because they didn't bring a case. I guess that met the normal criteria for being heard. And what would that be? And what would that be? Go ahead. He decided to take a case. There have to be four votes to take it so I can't go beyond that. What we do know is that they were not four votes to take it because it wasn't taken. And there are criteria and, uh, if we don't take a case, it's you know, I mean, the reason was all likelihood is that the criteria weren't mad and he doesn't tell us what the criteria are. But I will tell you the criteria were met. I just told you why they were met. The criteria were met.

Supreme Court throws out Louisiana abortion restrictions

"Been talking to Stephen Black professor at the University of Texas Law School about the decision today We're a divided Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that opponents said would have left the state with only one abortion clinic. Chief Justice John Roberts provided the crucial vote during the court's liberal justices in a 5 to 4 majority. So Justice Stephen Breyer, who also wrote the majority opinion in the Texas Case, wrote the majority opinion here did he reiterated his reasoning in the Texas case, or did he just follow precedent? No American. I think a lot of the plurality of him by the prior was very much not just reiterating what he wrote for the majority four years ago in the home of health case, but also do not carefully trying to explain why that decision for your so should control the case. Why the Louisiana line is not in any material way. Actually, or legally different fromthe law that the court threw out in Texas four years ago. If I can, you know for Brier, the queue is to show why these cases are not the similar And you know, I don't get you. Justice. Roberts actually agreed with that. I think you just agreed with the endorsement of the analysis from the earlier decision on hold and help if that's why he felt obliged and compelled to write separately. What was the thread running through the dissenting opinions? What's interesting about this case is, you know if you read the sentinel opinions that actually very little tune about roar, Casey and a whole lot about standing, you know, I think for the defenders, the ground they were hoping in this case would be resolved on Was that the abortion providers June Medical Services, etcetera weren't proper parties. The challenge Louisiana long the first place that would have allowed the court sidestep a major ruling on the stuff into scope of the right to pursue a pre viability abortion. But of course, there were consequences all his own indignant much harder for a court to hear these kinds of pieces going forward, so No, I think for the dissenters for justice Promise Justice Alito. The quarters from Kavanaugh know there at least stated opposition here with principally to the court allow in this case to reach America at all. I suspect June that that no one will be surprised if no. Were those marriage to be properly before them. They just hostile to them that know the descent maybe focus on stand them, but I think it's not hard to imagine that there are objections on the merits behind them as well. So during his confirmation hearings, Justice Cavanaugh was questioned again and again on Roe v. Wade, and he said he would follow precedent. Did he veer from that in this decision? I don't think so. I mean, just, Kavanaugh wrote only a very short to page dissent, although he joined a large chunk of just much longer defense. You know, I think Kavanaugh is a little bit cagey and careful on exactly that point. Doesn't say a lot about roar. Casey. He really put it on the procedural question of whether these planets had standin on why he thinks that matter should have been read ended the trial court traditional back finding on that question. But, you know, I think folks are not gonna have trouble reason. If you imagine this is You know, suitable and without necessarily saying that he's probably a reliable vote for the conservatives in a case where the merits of an abortion restriction really aren't properly before the court. You know, I don't think it's directly inconsistent with anything, he said during the confirmation process, But Matt it certainly doesn't come running like wall. We've heard a lot about Justice Roberts Justice Gorsuch Has Cavanaugh been a reliable conservative vote during his first term here, I think, for the most part, I mean, I think there's one or two paces June where You know he's been on the other side. We're siding with the progressive on Ly one that comes to mind when you was the deciding vote on. It wasn't an especially major contention case that without an antitrust case You know, I think he's probably been in some respects more reliable in a smaller data set as a conservative vote than justice. Gorsuch has been, obviously, of course, it's you know, it's fresh off of the Majority opinion he wrote in the LGBT discrimination case, You know, so I think I think it's pretty clear that injustice. Cavanaugh, the conservative, got what they were hoping for. Um Whether that hold across the larger data set, we'll see. But you know, I also think it's also a sign of the times. June. You know, we had a 30 year period We had a Supreme Court with No. Two very obvious swing. That justice is Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, where you could see these pretty profound shift in majorities from one case to the next. That's not where we are. Now we have a solid conservative majority and results, like the abortion case, don't change that. I think they just show that there are at least some elements that even the solid conservative majority won't transgress. This was the third time in two weeks that Chief Justice John Roberts disappointed conservatives in a blockbuster opinion. Is he now the next Justice Kennedy Oh, I think it's been clear June since Justice Cabin always confirmed to the Supreme Court that in most, not all but most of the high profile, divisive partisan No social and contentious cases before the Supreme Court. The departure of death of Kennedy puts to Justice Robert from the middle, and I think, you know we're seeing that this term in spades. It's not just his decisive vote today in the Louisiana abortion paid not just his majority opinion in the doc a case you know that he also joined Justice Gorsuch. In the LGBT discrimination case, So you know they're going to be out liars where it's not the chief Cruz the swing vote, But I think you know in the high profile cases more often than not, yes, where there's a 5 to 4 majority, and it's No for the conservatives who sent him the the one who will have been personally to switch sides with the chief justice John, I don't think that's because anything about the chief has changed. I think that because No. The court itself has changed. And because the kind of dispute the court is taken are increasingly grounds new towards ones where any of those five justices were going. Be disinclined Tio. Ride with the quote unquote conservative position. It's going to be John Roberts. Using this opinion and looking forward at some of the other opinions that are coming out, especially the decision on the subpoenas for Trump's financial records. Does this tell us anything about how justice Roberts may vote on that? I really don't think so. You know, I don't think that this is any kind of broader shift or pattern in how the chief justice instead of his job, you know, I think he's he's able to take that from cases differently. I mean, you know, right after we got the abortion opinion this morning, we got the chief justice's majority opinion. And that's the Buchanans, which was a very classically conservative separation of powers. Hold them from him. So I don't think we should read anything broader into his vote in these cases, other than the reality that he is now the Longboat And, you know, do not could show up again as early as you know the cases where they were coming down on Tuesday or the rest of this week or next week. You know, I don't think this is the last time this term that the chief going to be the swing vote, But I also don't think that you know the fact that he's this one wrote in some cases allows us to predict in which cases It most likely
