Former Attorney General Eric Holder said that Democrats must expand the Supreme Court should President Trump successfully confirm a third Justice.
“You would have a conservative majority on the court, an illegitimate conservative majority on the court, ruling on these matters that will affect the nation, you know, for generations to come,” Holder complained to MSNBC’s Al Sharpton.
“If in fact they are successful in placing a justice on the court, I think what Democrats have to do, assuming that Biden is president and there is a Senate majority for the Democrats, we need to think about court reform. And at a minimum, as part of that reform package, I think additional justices need to placed on the Supreme Court.”
Notably, Holder’s proposal is something Democrats have been planning for years.
