Court Packing Is a ‘Power Grab’ – Said Joe Biden In a 2005 Video That Just Resurfaced

Democrats might have some extra explaining to do with regard to how their party’s chosen presidential candidate is handling the burning question of whether or not he would pursue the dirty practice of “court packing” if he somehow wins the General election on November 3.

Though Biden and his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris have dodged the question at every single turn — even telling Americans on Saturday that they didn’t “deserve” to know whether he would court pack or not — an old video from 2005 surfaced over the weekend that shows Biden calling the practice of court packing a “power grab.”

The former senator was, at the time, providing a history lesson on the matter, talking about FDR’s attempt to pack the court to help push through his New Deal legislation.

“He wanted to increase the number of justices to 15, allowing himself to nominate those additional judges,” Biden said. “It took an act of courage on the part of his own party institutionally to stand up against this power grab.”

So, here’s the crazy thing — Biden was right back in 2005. Court packing is absolutely a power grab move — one that Democrats seem to be continually licking their chops over, not only as a strategy to remove a conservative majority on the court should Amy Coney Barrett be confirmed prior to the election, but also a strategy to bolster Democrat control in all three branches of government.

It’ll be quite interesting to see if Biden, if and when he decides that the American people are worthy of hearing his current thoughts on the matter, will stick to his guns or continue to flip-flop around on the issue like he does with pretty much every other important issue during the election.
