NO COMMENT: Harris Says Biden ‘Very Clear with the American People Where He Stands’ on Court Packing

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.14.20

Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris once-again dodged questions surrounding her campaign’s policy regarding court packing; asserting that Joe Biden has been “very clear with the American people” on the issue.

“I think that … Vice President Biden has been very clear with the American people where he stands,” Harris said. “The bottom line is we are what is it 21 days now from an election and that’s where we’re focused.”

 

The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in recent weeks thrust the future of the Supreme Court into the national headlines and is now one of the most important issues heading into the 2020 presidential election.

Democrats are privately planning on “packing the court” should Joe Biden win the White House in November and his party takes control of the Senate.

What is Court Packing?

The concept goes back to President Franklin Roosevelt, who suggested expanding the number of Supreme Court Justices from 9 to 15.

Such an action would not require a Constitutional Amendment, but a simple act of Congress.

Once passed, the current President would then nominate judges to fill the vacant seats; meaning Joe Biden could theoretically “pack the court” with six hand-selected judges in just one term.

The new progressive majority could have life-altering implications for our Freedom of Speech, the Second Amendment, religious liberties, abortion, and other issues.

Biden refuses to answer whether he supports “packing the courts” if Republicans confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett before the election; saying the American people will learn his position after November 3rd.

BIDEN on COURT PACKING: If I Answer That Question, It Will Be ‘The Headline In Every One of Your Papers’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.08.20

Former Vice President Joe Biden stumped in Phoenix Thursday alongside Kamala Harris; once-again refusing to say if he plans on packing the Supreme Court with additional justices should he win the White House.

“Some of you have covered national politics before. The rest of the world is laughing at us. It’s an embarrassment. It’s got to stop. You’ll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over. It’s a great question, and I don’t blame you for asking,” said Biden.

“The moment I answer that question, the headline in every one of your papers will be about that!” he added.
