Not to create the Constitution, a Problem that has remained, a fixed number of judges — Yes, to Congress; Shannon Bream, Fox News chief investigated legal correspondent and the anchor of ‘Fox News @ Night,’ on the political wheel for decades, before suddenly a hot campaign topic.
The former Vice-President Joe Biden slammed the “bonehead idea of” packing the Supreme court in the 1983 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, say the last attempt to question the independence of the court for a decade.
The remark came during a hearing for a judge, but during the debate about whether to replace President Ronald Reagan, the members of the Commission on Civil rights. Biden against the commissioners, not because he regarded them as unqualified, but because he thought that Reagan was the takeover of the Commission damages its legitimacy.
He compared it with Roosevelt’s court-packing push, which he called a “terrible, terrible mistake.”
“President Roosevelt was obviously in the right in the United States Senate and the United States Congress a proposal to pack the court,” Biden said during the hearing. “It was not completely in his right to do that—he violated the law, he was legalistic ally is absolutely right.”
