WATCH: Holder calls for Dems to add Justices to SCOTUS, says “I believe it would be totally appropriate to add additional seats to the Supreme Court”

Appearing at a Brookings Institution event titled “Is There a Path Forward for Court Reform?” former Attorney General Eric Holder made the case for Democrats adding justices to the Supreme Court.

Holder began by arguing that “Democrats and progressives, are, and have been, uncomfortable with the acquisition and the use of power.”

He continued by making the case that the SCOTUS and other courts have now become “political bodies” filled with “ideologues who consistently reach rulings based on their stunted mindsets.”

Holder concludes Democrats “must use the power that they now have.”

Specifically, Holder recommended “I believe it would be totally appropriate to add additional seats to the Supreme Court, in response to what has transpired over the past few years.”
