(Big League Politics) – Former Attorney General Eric Holder is urging Democrats to radically alter the Supreme Court.
Holder said that Democrats should consider packing the Supreme Court with extra judges once they come back in power. As a means of taking revenge against President Trump for filling two seats on the Supreme Court, Holder advised Democrats to “seriously consider” adding two seats to the court.

Holder’s spokesman continued laying out Holder’s vision:
“In response to a question, Attorney General Holder said that given the unfairness, unprecedented obstruction, and disregard of historical precedent by Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans, when Democrats retake the majority they should consider expanding the Supreme Court to restore adherence to previously accepted norms for judicial nominations.”

Since Trump was elected, leftists have become attracted to the idea of packing the courts.
New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democratic hopeful for the 2020 elections, has expressed her interest in expanding the court, viewing it as “an interesting idea.”
Court packing is not exactly a revolutionary idea.
Former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt made attempts to expand the court in the 1930s as a way to ram through his New Deal agenda. FDR’s efforts to court pack were ultimately derailed in Congress, however his court-packing legacy lives on in the present-day Democratic Party.
Along with their commitment to open borders and plans to abolish the Electoral College, Democrats latest ploy to expand courts shows they are hell-bent on turning the U.S. into a Banana Republic political system like that of modern-day Venezuela.
When political institutions are turned upside down and the cultural fabric is destroyed, countries are then ripe for demagogic takeovers.
Packing the courts will just be the next step in consolidating Democrat’s globalist agenda and ushering in a new era of oligarchical collectivism.
