In New Book, Justice Stephen Breyer Talks About Supreme Court's Role In A Polarized Nation

There has been a lot of pressure from progressive groups for 83-year-old Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to step down to make room for a younger liberal.

Totenberg joins Here & Now‘s Scott Tong with the highlights.
