The Dems are sore losers so they try to change the rules every time they suffer a major setbacks. With their party in disarray, they do have a good reason to panic.
President Trump and Mitch McConnell, through shrewd political moves and taking advantage of Dem blunders, have reshaped the federal judiciary for the next decade.
The President has also guaranteed a conservative majority on the Supreme Court for a generation and that is before he wins another term.
If he wins, Trump will get a few more Supreme Court picks while at the same time he will literally change the balance of power on the Appellate Courts and remove them from liberal control.
So the Dems in a panic have a new plan to stop this – term limits on the Supreme Court.
Fox News reported that Former Attorney General Eric Holder openly called for 18-year term limits for Supreme Court justices on Wednesday, lending his support to a push that has gained steam among Democrats amid the Trump administration’s rapid-fire federal judicial appointments — and the possibility of a looming Supreme Court vacancy.
Holder, who once described himself as Ex-President Obama’s “wingman,” this week also took a shot at AG Barr, saying that the current state of the Justice Department (DOJ) is a politicized “disaster.”
Speaking on Saturday at Pomona College’s Bridges Auditorium, in Claremont, Calif., Holder said: “I don’t think someone should have that much power in an unelected position for that long. … I think that three senatorial terms, 18 years, would be enough for a justice.”
Currently, a Supreme Court justice is appointed for life. Implementing term limits for the Supreme Court would require a highly implausible constitutional amendment overriding the “Good Behavior Clause” of the Constitution.
After those comments were first reported by the school’s newspaper, on Wednesday Holder confirmed the news and offered more details on his proposal.
“Eighteen years is enough for an unelected official — Supreme Court justice — wielding such power,” Holder wrote on Twitter. “Each president gets two picks which will decrease the political pressure in confirmation. Can be done by statute. Ask each candidate their position — including Trump. Reform is necessary.”
