Former AG Holder: Dems should pack the Court if they win Senate in 2020


Recommended Posts


One of the fundamental differences between liberals and conservatives is how both view the Constitution.  Conservatives believe that adhering to constitutional principles, if not the letter and spirit of the document, should be the guiding force of government.  Liberals, on the other hand, see the Constitution as an impediment — something to be gotten around.

Keep that difference in mind when you hear what former attorney general Eric Holder had to say about the Supreme Court.

Daily Beast:

Former Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that the next Democratic president should "seriously" consider adding additional seats to the United States Supreme Court should they be elected alongside a Democratic majority in the Senate.

The comments came during a discussion Holder held with the Yale Law National Security Group.  There was no recording of the event and only a snippet of what Holder said was tweeted out publicly.  But a spokesman for Holder confirmed to The Daily Beast that he did embrace the idea of court-packing.:snip:
