Liberal Law Prof Calls Democrat Effort To Pack The U.S. Supreme Court A ‘Hostile Takeover’

Democrats have truly gone too far. They are actively pushing to pack the United States Supreme Court with liberal judges.

People from all political backgrounds are calling them out.

Professor Jonathan Turley, a liberal law professor at George Washington University even called it a hostile takeover.

He writes at his blog:

Hostile Takeover: Democrats To Introduce Bill To Pack The Supreme Court

We recently discussed the controversial commission created by President Joe Biden to discuss calls to pack the Supreme Court as well as a number of truly looney ideas for circumventing or reducing the authority of the Court’s conservative majority. Some members however decided not to wait even for a commission that is itself packed with liberal members.

House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, D-NY, Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass, and others will be announcing their plan to immediately add four new justices to the Court. The number is calculated purely to give liberals a 7-6 majority on the Court. It is about a subtle as a B-52 run.

Many of us have discussed the expansion of the Supreme Court through the years. Over 20 years ago, I recommended the expansion of the Court to 17 or 19 members. However, that recommendation would occur over many years and would not give advocates the short-term majority that they are seeking. That is the difference between reforming and packing the Court.

The bill today strips away any pretense of principle. It is pure unadulterated court packing.

Watch Jerry Nadler make a total jackass out of himself claiming that this is not packing, it’s unpacking:

And here’s a Dem rep from New York saying that expanding the court is infrastructure. This isn’t parody, he’s serious…

The Democrats are clowns. If they pull the trigger on this, they will pay a price for it.
