Holder: If Republicans Create an ‘Illegitimate Majority,’ We’ll Need to Add Justices to Court

‘At a minimum, as part of that reform package, I think additional justices need to be placed on the Supreme Court’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

HOLDER: “Now, we have many very serious issues. This is not a partisan thing that we’re talking about here. You’re talking about abortion rights cases, voting rights cases. You’re talking about LGBTQ rights, the Affordable Care Act. All of these issues are going before this court. And to have a court that is not representative of at least respecting the consistency and how it’s elected, with these heavy matters that effect all Americans is in many ways frightening to me. Because if we have a tilted court based on some hypocritical Politics and these issues are weighed that way, we’re talking about generations could be impacted by this.”

HOLDER: “That’s exactly right. You would put in place, if this is allowed to happen, a 6-3 court. And with all the issues you have talked about, you would have a conservative majority, illegitimate conservative majority on the court ruling on the matters that will effect the nation for generations to come. If Merrick Garland had been confirmed, as he should have been, there would have been a progressive majority for the past three years. I think if, if in fact they are successful in placing a justice on the court, I think that what Democrats have to do, assuming Biden is president and there is a Senate majority for the Democrats, we need think about court reform. And at a minimum, as part of that reform package, I think additional justices need to be placed on the Supreme Court.”
