Sen. Chris Coons said he’s not completely opposed to the idea of packing the Supreme Court.
In an interview Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union with Jake Tapper, the Delaware Democrat said he is “not a fan of expanding the court” but will remain open to the possibility of expanding the size of the high court.
“Well, Jake, like Joe Biden, I’m not a fan of expanding the court, but we have a few weeks here to see whether there are four Republicans who will step back from this precipice,” Coons said. “It is President Trump who has pressed for this nominee. So he can have a key vote to overturn the Affordable Care Act. In the middle of a pandemic.”
Coons continued, “And then, if we happen to be in the fact pattern where we have a President Biden, we’ll have to look at what the right steps are to rebalance our federal judiciary.”
