Ben Shapiro warns Democrats push to pack Supreme Court would be 'country-shattering'

트럼프 대통령 should quickly move to replace late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, conservative commentator 벤 샤피로 said Monday, adding that any move by Democrats to increase the size of the high court should they take power in 2021 would becountry-shattering in nature.

What Democrats are threatening to do violates the structural integrity of the Constitution in massive new ways,” 그만큼 “벤 샤피로 쇼” host told listeners. “What they are threatening to do can, 사실로, split the country apart, and they’re using this as blackmail to prevent Republicans from fulfilling their Constitutional duty to fill that seat.


트럼프 대통령 saying he will nominate a candidate to replace Ginsburg later this week, a growing number of Democrats are threatening to pack the Supreme Court if the party wins the White House and the Senate in November.

Shapiro described the radical strategy as thegreatest Constitutional crisis that I’ve seen in modern American history, not because of what Republicans are going to dofill the seatbut because of what Democrats are threatening to do.

The idea of “packing” the court with extra justicesattempted unsuccessfully by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937 in a bid to force through parts of his New Deal that were ruled unconstitutional by the high courthas bubbled on the fringes of the party for years.

But Shapiro warned the move would give more power to a party that hasnothing but scorn for the institutional checks and balances of the government of the United States.

Why in the world you let Democrats appoint people to the Supreme Court who are promptly going to use the Supreme Court as another political body?” 그는 물었다.

The Supreme Court’s original designation was to interpret the Constitution of the United States,” Shapiro argued. “Democrats don’t like the Constitution of the United States and have appointed judges who similarly don’t like the Constitution and see it as an obstacle to what they attempt to do.
