President Joe Biden has issued a thinly veiled threat to Chief Justice John Roberts in the form of a new commission that will study Supreme Court reform. The threat is clear: if Roberts doesn’t limit the court’s conservative influence on key issues like abortion, gun rights and immigration, Democrats will pack the court.
In other words, “Nice court ya got there, it would be a shame if something happened to it.”
Liberal activists have been demanding the administration use its newfound power to seize control of the third branch of government, lest the final conservative foothold in Washington weaken Roe’s sweeping power, preserve the Second Amendment or uphold religious freedom. The commission, reported Wednesday on by Politico, is the administration’s formal acceptance and weaponization of those demands.
