    Even if it requires nuking the filibuster, President Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats stand ready to pack the Supreme Court with liberal justices.In a clear partisan effort to pack the U.S. Supreme Court with more liberal justices, congressional Democrats introduced a bill on Thursday seeking to expand the number of justices from nine to 13.The bill was introduced just days after Biden commissioned 36 left-leaning scholars, former judges, and lawyers led by a former Obama adviser to evaluate expanding the number of justices. The White House marketed the so-called “bipartisan” commission as a 180-day effort to examine and outline...

    Joe Biden and the progressive wing of the Democrat Party just got a wake-up call from House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi and some other top Democrats. “Do you support Jerry Nadler's bill to expand the Supreme Court by 4 seats and would you commit to bringing that bill to the floor,” a reporter asked the Speaker. “No,” she said matter of factly. “'I support the president's commission to study such a proposal,' Pelosi added. 'But, frankly, I'm not – right now, we're back, our members – committees are working putting together the infrastructure bill and the rest,” Speaker...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not support the effort by her fellow Democratic congressional leaders to expand the Supreme Court from nine justices to 13 — and will not bring such a bill to the floor for a vote, she said Thursday. Pelosi made the revelation while during her weekly press conference, offering a stark “No” after being asked about the measure being introduced to expand the nation’s highest bench.

    Just hit the wires… Congressional Democrats plan to unveil legislation expanding the size of the Supreme Court on Thursday, according to three congressional sources familiar with the closely held measure. The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13, from the current 9. The number of justices on the Court has fluctuated widely throughout the course of the nation’s history. Republicans currently hold 6 seats, while Democrats hold just 3 after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the quick confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett. The bill is led by House Judiciary...

    House and Senate Democrats are poised to introduce legislation to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court so President Biden can add several of his own picks -- a practice known as court-packing -- but the late liberal icon Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg once firmly came out against the idea. In a 2019 interview with NPR, Ginsburg addressed the idea that has gained momentum among Democrats in recent years. "I have heard that there are some people on the Democratic side who would like to increase the number of judges," Ginsburg said. "I think that was a bad...

    Why have a group of Congressional Democrats symbolically flipped the bird to “the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States” that President Biden created by Executive Order only 6 days ago? Andrea Widburg has an excellent blog on these pages today on the announcement and its place in the broader plan of the Dems to alter the institutional framework of governance so as to ensure permanent Democrat majorities. That group of purported “experts” appointed by Biden’s Executive Order was stacked to likely yield a result congenial to expanding court so as to hand a rubber stamp majority...

    Congressional Democrats will introduce legislation Thursday to expand the Supreme Court from nine to 13 justices, joining progressive activists pushing to transform the court.The move intensifies a high-stakes ideological fight over the future of the court after President Donald Trump and Republicans appointed three conservative justices in four years, including one who was confirmed days before the 2020 election. The Democratic bill is led by Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, the chair of the House Judiciary Committee. It is co-sponsored by Reps. Hank Johnson of Georgia and Mondaire Jones of New York.The Supreme...
