Is Biden Preparing to Pack the Supreme Court?

Is President Joe Biden preparing to pack the U.S. Supreme Court with liberals by expanding the number of Justices on the Court? Given today’s breaking news, that’s a fair question.

Breaking Now:President Biden will issue an executive order Friday to form a commission to study reforms to the United States Supreme Court,” according to Fox News.

Biden, under pressure from liberals to expand the size of the high court, promised to create the commission during a “60 Minutes” interview back in October in the wake of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death. [emphasis added]

“The 36-member commission will be bipartisan and will hold public meetings to evaluate court reforms. The new panel will have 180 days from the first meeting to complete its report of recommendations.

“While court-packing — or expanding the number of justices beyond nine — has been the most high-profile court reform debated, Biden’s executive order seeks to look at other judicial changes, including the lifetime appointment of justices. 

“According to the White House, the commission will look into ‘the length of service and turnover of justices on the Court; the membership and size of the Court; and the Court’s case selection, rules, and practices.'”
