Former Attorney General Eric Holder has suggested to his fellow Democrats that one way to put their stamp on American history, especially in light of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's and President Trump's agenda, is to expand the Supreme Court. He made the farfetched proposal last week at Yale Law School and Columbia University.

"Given the Merrick Garland situation, the question of legitimacy is one that I think we should actually talk about," Holder said. "We should be talking even about expanding the number of people who serve on the Supreme Court, if there is a Democratic President and a Congress that might be willing to do that.”

Holder is one of many Democrats still sour about McConnell's decision to hold up Obama's Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland for months after Justice Antonin Scalia's death. McConnell's hardline paved the way for President Trump to nominate and confirm his own justice, Neil Gorsuch. He confirmed another, Brett Kavanaugh, after that. So it's obvious why Democrats are starting to bite their fingernails.:snip:
