So the threat from the Democrat party is that if President Trump and the Turtle (or Apex Predator as the Bezos Bulletin is now calling him) get a SC nominee confirmed, if they ever get total power, they'll just expand the SC to 11 or 13 or 85 seats and confirm their own chumps. This would take a law, so it would have to pass the House, Senate (once they nuke the filibusterer), then signed by the President, or forged for him if it's Slow Joe to avoid him drooling all over the pretty paperwork. But is there any reason why the SC couldn't just declare that unconstitutional, the reasoning being separation of powers. The entire reason for expanding the SC would not be something valid like it being able to hear more cases, it would be to allow the current Legislative and Executive branches the opportunity to put their own people on it, and dilute the influence of the current members. Just as a Congress that was mad at the SC couldn't zero out its budget for the year, or sell off the SC building to keep them from meeting, expanding the court to change its ideological make up could be deemed by the SC to be an interference with its Constitution powers, and thus unconstitutional. Now the Coward John Roberts wound't go along with that - he'd welcome new and fellow leftists to vote for what would make the Post happy, but would the 5 conservative members reject an attempt to meddle with the SC?
