Assoc. Press Calls Court-Packing 'Depoliticizing'
One way that President Trump could play another 'trump card' is to announce on November 4th (day after election), that he will 'depoliticize the US Supreme Court by adding 6 more justices.
The constitution is silent on the makeup of the court members. We didn't always have 9 justices.
Even after the Nov. 3rd election, the senate could confirm all 6 of them before Christmas. That way even if the New Senate gets taken over by Democrats, these justices are sworn in. It would require 68 senators to remove them in impeachment.
The beauty of it lies in the hypocrisy of the Democrats who already say that more justices equals less politics in the SCOTUS. We know that's not true when we look at the 535 member congress!
Let's wait to see who parrots the 'depoliticizing' narrative which the Associated Press talking points provide. If they go 'all in', then we've effectively trapped them in their own words.
