Nadler Demands Democrats Pack Supreme Court If Ginsburg Is Replaced

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler called on Democrats to “immediately” mobilize to “expand” the Supreme Court if Republicans dare to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“If Sen. McConnell and [the] Senate GOP were to force through a nominee during the lame-duck session—before a new Senate and president can take office—then the incoming Senate should immediately move to expand the Supreme Court,” Nadler tweeted.

In a follow-up message, Nadler warned that “filling the SCOTUS vacancy during a lame-duck session, after the American people have voted for new leadership, is undemocratic and a clear violation of the public trust in elected officials.”

“Congress would have to act, and expanding the court would be the right place to start,” the judiciary chairman wrote.

Breitbart.com reports: The comments come as Democrats are mobilizing to keep President Donald Trump from filling the vacancy and cementing a 6-to-3 conservative majority on the nation’s highest court. Democrats are vying to keep the seat open until January in hopes that former Vice President Joe Biden will win the upcoming election and be able to propose his own nominee for the post.

At the moment, Democrats are relying on precedent that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) set in 2016 when refusing to hold confirmation hearings on then-President Barack Obama’s choice to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by the late Antonin Scalia.

“The voters should pick the president and the president should pick the justice for the Senate to consider,” Biden told reporters on Friday. “This was the position the Republican Senate took in 2016 when there were almost ten months to go before the election. That’s the position the United States Senate needs to take today.”

  1. Fat and dickless Jewboy Nadler is proposing for the USSC the same scam his kind has done to US elections using diversity immigration, and that is to add more people so that honest people are numerically overwhelmed by the number of dishonest people.

    Most people don’t know this fact, but the US has implemented a diversity lottery that determines who or what can immigrate to the US.

    Diversity supremacy is real.

  2. As 8f the arepubl8cans dont have the legal right to appoint another Supreme being.Frankly the lot of them need someone standing over them imo and its definitely not the Soddom and gommorah ghosts .Although I m totally supportive of human rights I’m also totally supportive of peoples freedom of religion and free will BUT one mustn’t ever be allowed to negate the other and religion must never be diminished in order to support sexual liberty except maybe by Satanists as king as its a open transparent choice made of free will .
