Never in a million years would I have guessed that an interview by a reporter at The New York Times would shed light on one of the primary questions America has for the ultra-progressive, dynamic duo of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris: If they win the election in November, will the pack the U.S. Supreme Court?
Well, apparently she’s “absolutely” open to the idea.
NYT reporter Alexander Burns dropped the bombshell in a recent NYT podcast that Harris, in 2019, told him that she was open to packing the nation’s High Court — a practice that would typically only be used if Democrats wanted to completely take control in the instance that conservative judges have a majority on the bench.
“Sen. Harris told me in an interview actually that she was absolutely open to doing that” Harris said.
Harris also added why he believes Harris or Biden won’t answer the question as it relates to their presidential campaign.
“But we’ve not heard her reiterate that recently so I think for them there is this balancing act of they don’t want to alienate moderate voters,” Harris said. “They also don’t want to send a demoralizing signal to their own party.”

So, if one couples the fact that neither Harris or Biden will answer the question of whether or not they’ll pack the court with the information gleaned from a NYT reporter, it’s not difficult for the average citizen to deduce that Harris is, in fact, probably planning on packing the court should the need arise.
Earlier this week, Biden was asked by the press — once again — if he would pack the court. Instead of his usual weak excuses as to why he can’t answer, he told the group of reporters that they would know “after the election.”
Their inability or unwillingness to answer such a basic, yet critically important question is more than telling and should serve as a massive red flag to undecided voters when they go to the polls on November 3.
