Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said this week that efforts to expand the Supreme Court will likely “destroy” the rule of law and politicize the judiciary.
“It will destroy the rule of law as we know. This is the biggest assault on the rule of law and the independent judiciary in my lifetime,” Graham told Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro.
“I think they want to turn the court upside down, to pack it with liberals because they don’t like the makeup of the court. And what will happen is that every time one party takes over from the other, [they] will change the number of justices.”
He warned that such efforts would transform the court into a “political football” and “destroy the Supreme Court as we know it.”
