McConnell To Allow Court Packing?

Here’s what McConnell said.

While most Republican voters have lost their faith in Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, he is standing firm against the idea of letting President Biden pack the Supreme Court.

At least McConnell hasn’t sold out on this.

The decision from McConnell came after he criticized Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson after she gave “evasive and unclear” answers to a number of very important questions.

According to The Hill, McConnell slammed Judge Jackson and said, “She’s declined to address critically important questions and ameliorate real concerns. First and foremost is the simple question of court-packing. The far-left fringe groups that promoted Judge Jackson for this vacancy want Democrats to destroy the court’s legitimacy through partisan court-packing. She was literally the court packers pick for the seat, and she has repeatedly refused to reject their position.”

McConnell pushed back even further and said, “Judge Jackson has refused to follow in the footsteps of Ginsburg and Breyer. She refuses to rule out what the radical activists want. She told Sen. [John] Kennedy [R-La.] she does have an opinion on court-packing, but it’s not a strongly held opinion. In any event, she wouldn’t tell the senator what it was.”
