House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) urged Democrats on Saturday to immediately mobilize to expand the Supreme Court if Republicans succeed in confirming a replacement for the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
If Sen. McConnell and [the] Senate GOP were to force through a nominee during the lame-duck sessionbefore a new Senate and president can take officethen the incoming Senate should immediately move to expand the Supreme Court, the New York lawmaker wrote on social media.
Nadler added in a follow-up message that filling the SCOTUS vacancy during a lame-duck session, after the American people have voted for new leadership, is undemocratic and a clear violation of the public trust in elected officials.

The Nad[less] knows all about expanding.
He’s an expert.

Gee it sounds like he knows who already won the election and it’s not Trump he must have a crystal ball or friends at the Post Office.
They'll do it anyway if they get back in power and it benefits them. They're also threatening to eliminate the filibuster if the GOP fills the seat. It's a hollow threat, they're trying to bluff the GOP into not filling the seat but you can guarantee that whether we fill it or not they're still going to try and push through these measures in a power grab if they get back into power.
The GOP would be the ultimate suckers to fall for it. There's no such thing as good will with democrats. If the GOP tries to placate these zealots by not filling the seat then they'll still eliminate the filibuster and try to stack the court if they get back into power. Maybe we'll get a reacharound in the process as a gesture of thanks.
They're going to do everything they can to consolidate power if they get voted back in, that's a given. We MUST get that seat filled before that can happen. If we don't then we'll end up with another Ginsburg on the court, no filibuster, and they'll still try to stack the court to increase their margin.
The “if” is strong in this one.
Trump should agree, and expand court to whatever number Dems want when he wins re-election
There is NO WAY Biden wins this election NO WAY!!
Nadler is a silly little lawn gnome.
LITTLE lol, lol, nadler is anything but little!!

Fill him with hydrogen and paint a Nazi Swastika on his tail (Swastika wasn’t there at the Lakehurst accident, though)
it’s a toss up right now because of demographics..that’s it.
oh and their fraud game is deep and wide
How different would all this be without Soros funding the screaming?
Between Soros and Ginsburg I’d have chosen Soros to leave us/
Nadler just called the Constitution undemocratic and a clear violation of the public trust.
Headline should read:
Joy Reid urges Dems to start CW2.
That’s a great idea, Waddler. Now try getting the Senate to support your nutty idea.
