Democrats really went for it on Thursday, attempting to defend their extreme decision to launch an attack on the nation’s highest court in an attempt to rule over the country however they see fit.
Democrats face a massive amount of criticism – even from within their own party – over a recently introduced bill which would add four justices to the Supreme Court, better known as packing the court. Thursday, they desperately tried to change that by flipping the narrative.
Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler went for a bit of reverse psychology suggesting that they were the “good” guys in this case. “Some people say we’re packing the Court. We’re not packing the Court; we’re unpacking it,” Nadler insisted in an attempt to deceive the American public.
Just a day prior, Nadler refused to answer a question from Republican Rep. Jim Jordan as to whether he planned to introduce legislation to expand the Supreme Court.
Jordan stated, “Just a question on an issue that concerns the Committee: It’s being reported by the DC Bureau chief of The Intercept, the gentleman, Ryan Grim — I understand that it is not only wise to believe what is said on Twitter — but he is reporting that the Democrats will be introducing legislation to expand the Supreme Court from 9 members to 13 members and that you and two of our members on this committee will be sponsoring that legislation, is that accurate?”
“That is not the subject of the markup,” Nadler deflected.
Jordan fired back, “Extending the Supreme Court, a report that the chairman is going to be sponsoring legislation is not something to be talked about on the House Judiciary Committee? I waited until the bill was over to ask the Chairman a question, if you don’t think it’s important about Democrats trying to extend the size of the Supreme Court — I think that’s a pretty important issue.”
Nadler has been one of the left’s most divisive representatives for quite some time now. In March 2019, appearing on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, Nadler said of the investigation of former President Trump, “Our job is to protect the rule of law in this country.”
In 1998, however, Nadler protected former Democrat President Bill Clinton after he was found lying regarding his affair with Monica Lewinsky. Nadler stated that the attempt to impeach Clinton was “clearly a partisan railroad job.” He asserted:
In June 2019, Nadler ignored Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s protestations that he had no interest in testifying before Congress, instead threatening to summon Mueller before Congress anyway, saying, “We will have Mr. Mueller’s testimony.”
In June 2020, Nadler slammed GOP members of the House, stating, “They couldn’t utter the phrase ‘black lives matter’ and could barely [broach] the subject of police reform. Instead, their amendments, I’ve given you about half of them, just listed here, were arrant nonsense, off-topic, dealing with imaginary things like Antifa and completely negating the entire purpose of the bill.”
In that case, Rep. Jordan also responded to Nadler, who appeared to be defending the left-wing extremists. “They’re not imaginary, they’re real … To have the chair of the Judiciary Committee, on the House floor, say … these words … ‘imaginary things like Antifa.’ They are far from imaginary. And there are people in every major city in this country who know that and yet the chair of the Judiciary Committee just made that statement. That is scary.”
