They need to stop…
During an airing of “America’s Newsroom,” Senator Tom Cotton stated that the Supreme Court will “lose legitimacy” if the Democrats end up packing the court.
“What isn’t infrastructure these days? I can tell you what court-packing is, though. It will be the end of the Supreme Court’s legitimacy and the end of the rule of law in America. One reason that we respect the rule of law is that our constitution created an independent judiciary to protect the rights of Americans and create a final tribunal.”
“Democrats have a very bad habit of trying to intimidate the court. Chuck Schumer just last year went over and stood on the steps of the Supreme Court and threatened justices by name that they were going to reap the whirlwind, that they ruled in a way that he did not favor – so much so that the chief justice even rebuked political actors who engage in that kind of action. Look, it is fine to criticize the Supreme Court decision. Heavens, no. I criticize them, plenty of them. But to take actions to suggest you’re going to expand the court or you’re going to constrict their rules…it really is a way to try to intimidate the justices into the Democrats’ favor rulings.”
