Before the 2020 election, Joe Biden was very stubborn whenever he was asked about whether or not he would try to pack the Supreme Court. He clearly did not want to answer the question.
Now we know where he stands on the issue.
He just ordered a commission to study it. Why would he do this if he wasn’t considering doing it?
The Federalist reports:
Biden Orders Commission To Study How Democrats Can Pack The Supreme Court
President Joe Biden issued an executive order Friday directing a commission of 36 scholars, former judges, lawyers, and others led by a former Obama adviser to evaluate expanding the number of justices on the Supreme Court.
The reportedly bipartisan commission has 180 days to provide a study to Biden examining and outlining “the genesis of the reform debate, the Court’s role in the Constitutional system, the length of service and turnover of justices on the Court” as well as “the Court’s case selection, rules, and practices.”
“The Commission’s purpose is to provide an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform, including an appraisal of the merits and legality of particular reform proposals,” the White House said in a statement.
At the same time, a far left group is already pressuring Justice Breyer to retire.
We need to start the process of confirming a Black woman justice now.

And Biden will apparently “let” Justice Breyer retire when he decides to, as if it’s any of his business.

Remember when Democrats and the media claimed Trump was destroying our norms?
It was another classic case of projection.
