Biden’s Supreme Court ‘Commission’ Releases Major Update

According to new documents release this week, the committee charged with studying whether it is worthwhile (and Constitutionally appropriate) to add more justices to the Supreme Court — is not yet releasing a final decision on the matter.

Liberals have expressed anger at the committee’s failure to release its decision suggesting that Joe Biden’s commission is not doing its job.

“As a legal matter, we conclude that Congress has broad power to structure the Supreme Court by expanding (or contracting) the number of Justices,” the Commission’s documents read. “The prudential question is more difficult, and Commissioners are divided on whether Court expansion would be wise.”

The commission is, so far, split on the issue.

According to the newly released documents, expanding the court might “undermine, rather than enhance, the Supreme Court’s legitimacy and its role in the constitutional system, and there are significant reasons to be skeptical that expansion would serve democratic values.”

Some far-left Democrats have advocated for adding Justices to the Supreme Court ever since Republicans appointees became the majority. They were frustrated former president Barack Obama’s appointee Merrick Garland was not approved.

“We have said since the Commission’s beginning that for the Commission to provide a meaningful contribution to restoring the legitimacy of our judiciary, it needs to advance a specific list of Supreme Court reforms that can be acted upon in the near term,” American Constitution Society President Russ Feingold said in a statement. “The discussion materials released today unfortunately fail to match the urgency of the situation and do not lay out a solution to the legitimacy crisis before us.”

So far, the commission is doing what Biden assigned to it earlier this year.

“The commission’s purpose is to provide an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform, including an appraisal of the merits and legality of particular reform proposals,” the White House said when announcing the group.
