He listed the three “ギャンブル” なので, 1, Biden’s potentially shrinking ability to appoint Breyer’s successor considering the Senate could fall back into Republican control in the midterms, 2, Breyer’s actual ability, as part of the liberal minority, to stop the conservative memberswhen they want to act,” and three, what he claimed was the threat against democracy by the Republican Party following the 2020 election and the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.
