Pelosi Does Not Plan On Supporting Court Packing Bill

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) signaled she will not support Congressman Jerry Nadler’s (D-N.Y.) bill to expand the Supreme Court. On Thursday, Pelosi was asked about Nadler’s proposal to expand the High Court by four seats during a press conference.

However, the House Speaker said she would support Joe Biden’s newly-formed Supreme Court commission, which will look into the impacts of the proposal. Pelosi responded with a concise and blunt: “No.”

ther top Democrats, including Senate Judiciary Chairman Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), have refused to support the proposal.

Furthermore, back in 2005, when he was still a senator, Joe Biden panned the idea. He called it a “power grab.”
