Congressional Democrats plan to unveil legislation expanding the size of the Supreme Court on Thursday, according to three congressional sources familiar with the closely held measure, The Intercept reported exclusively.
Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Reps. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., Hank Johnson, D-Ga., and Mondaire Jones, D-N.Y., will hold a press conference on Thursday to introduce the proposal on the steps of the Supreme Court.
The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13 from the current nine. The number of justices on the Court, which is set by Congress, has fluctuated throughout the course of the nation’s history, before settling on nine in 1869.
Rep. Jim Jordan asked Nadler if it was true during a committee meeting, but Nadler refused to answer.
The fundamental transformation of our nation is well underway and I blame Never Trump Republicans.
#ICYMI: @ryangrim just reported that @RepJerryNadler is writing legislation to expand the Supreme Court. @Jim_Jordan asked if it was true. The Chairman wouldn’t answer.— House Judiciary GOP (@JudiciaryGOP) April 15, 2021
Sounds like the Democrats are running away from the bill before it’s even introduced! https://t.co/v6PQN3XivS
