This Says It All: Jerry Nadler’s 7 Words on Court Packing…

On Thursday, House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler explained why the Democrats felt the need to pack the Supreme Court.

The majority of Americans are against court-packing, but the Democrats continue to seek to add four seats to the Supreme Court to match the number of circuit courts.

“The number of justices is up to Congress, and Congress has changed that number 7 times in the history of the country,” he said. “Our founders understood that as the country and the judicial system evolved, the court needs to evolve with it. This legislation represents a much-needed next step in that evolution.”

“Nine justices may have made sense in the 19th century when there were only nine circuits. Only a few hundred appeals were filed before the court every year. And so many of our most important laws, everything from civil rights to antitrust, the Internet, financial regulation, health care, immigration, and white-collar crime, did not exist as far as the court was concerned and did not require adjudication by the Supreme Court,” he continued.

“But the logic behind having only nine justices is much weaker today when there are 13 circuit courts, thousands of cases filed before the court each year, and the full range of statutes and regulations that make our economy and our society work,” Nadler added.

Because of this, he said, “the overwhelming majority of cases don’t get considered by the Supreme Court, which they are entitled to do.”

“Our predecessors made eminent sense when they pegged the size of the Supreme Court to the number of judicial circuits,” he went on. “As our country has grown, so, too, to the Supreme Court.”



“13 justices for 13 circuits is a logical progression,” Nadler said.

He then said, “Some people will say we’re packing the court. We’re not packing it, we’re unpacking it.”

He then proceeded to accuse Senator McConnell and the Republicans of packing the court “over the last couple of years.”

This is the same man who said that Antifa is a myth. The Democrats lie and twist the truth to their benefit, and this is just another example of that.

  1. Senator Johnson recently issued a supplemental to our report that showed Hunter Biden’s close business associate, Rob Walker, received $6 million from a Chinese company linked to the communist regime. There’s yet another link in the chain from the Biden family and their associates to the Chinese government. The report also showed that State Department officials believed that Hunter Biden’s Burisma board membership created the perception of a conflict of interest and “was very awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine.” Secretary of State Kerry publicly denied knowing of Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board. We acquired evidence showing that he did, in fact, know about that role. In December 2015, instead of following U.S. objectives of confronting oligarchs, Vice President Biden’s staff advised him to avoid commenting on Burisma’s oligarch and instead say, “I’m not going to get into naming names or accusing individuals.” Joe Biden was running an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine and he pulled his punches while his son was on the board of Burisma. Based on witness testimony, Burisma’s owner allegedly paid a $7 million bribe to officials serving under Ukraine’s prosecutor general to shut the case against him. When he allegedly paid that bribe, Hunter Biden was on the board. These examples are just a sampling from the report and the tip of the iceberg with respect to the Biden family’s troubled ties to governments adverse to U.S. interests. These associations, and the millions of dollars that passed between and among Hunter Biden, James Biden and others, create criminal financial, counterintelligence and extortion concerns. That’s why I’ve since written to the Justice Department about the risk that Hunter and James Biden essentially served as agents of the communist Chinese government for purposes of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. After Hunter Biden publicly confirmed he was under criminal investigation, liberal news outlets reported on concerns that his financial associations could create criminal financial and counterintelligence problems. That’s what we said in September 2020 and we were roundly criticized for it. And just over the weekend, a new email was made public that reportedly says Joe Biden and his brother were “office mates” with the very same Chinese nationals we wrote about in our report. Those same individuals were the ones with links to the communist regime and it’s military. Based on all the facts known to date, Joe Biden has a lot of explaining to do. I’ve run many oversight operations and investigations during the course of my career. I’m interested in the facts, in the evidence, in the truth. I learned a lesson long ago when I first started my oversight focus and that is: no matter how difficult the media or the other side of the aisle makes it to find the facts – never give up, keep working hard. The American taxpayer deserves nothing less. That’s the attitude and approach I’ve had my entire career and it’s what I will take with me as I continue to look into the Biden family matters and as I move back to lead the Senate Judiciary Committee.
