DEMAND JUSTICE STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER FLOATING EXPANSION OF SUPREME COURT

WASHINGTON, DCBrian Fallon, Executive Director of Demand Justice, released the following statement Wednesday after former Attorney General Eric Holder urged Democrats to consider the idea of expanding the size of the Supreme Court during an event at Yale Law School:

“Eric Holder is right. Democrats cannot sit idly while Mitch McConnell plots to again change the Senate rules in order to pack the courts with more Trump judges.

“Republicans are rigging our courts, and if Democrats regain power in 2020, it will be up to us to restore legitimacy and balance. It is unacceptable for any Democrat running for president to be willing to leave the fate of the progressive agenda for the next three decades in the hands of a judiciary remade by Donald Trump.”
