Democrats are trying to pack the U.S. Supreme Court and it’s all about power.
Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said in a recent interview that if the Democrats manage to do this, it would be a disaster for the court, due process and free speech.
He also said this is all about filling the court with judges on the far left.
Dershowitz to Newsmax TV: ‘Disaster’ to Add More Supreme Court Justices
It would be a “disaster for the Supreme Court” if a Democrat bill to add four more justices to the bench is approved, Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said on Newsmax TV Saturday.
“It would be a disaster for the Supreme Court and it would be a disaster for freedom of speech and due process,” Dershowitz said on Newsmax TV’s “Saturday Report.” “If the Democrats get a chance to pack the court, they’ll pack it with radical opponents of free speech and due process, people who call themselves progressives but are really regressives.”…
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she does not favor the expansion, but Dershowitz pointed out Saturday that in her comments, she said that times have changed and there may still be regional and other considerations that require expanding the number of justices.
“That’s total nonsense,” Dershowitz said. “The Supreme Court is the most underworked institution in the American government. They decide fewer than 100 cases a year. They have four or five law clerks each and they don’t work all that hard.”
He added that there is no real reason to expand the number of justices, except to add people who are the “ideological” match of people like Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., in the court.

Dershowitz is right about this.
What the Democrats are trying to do is unprecedented in our time. This is simply about power.
