Joe Biden proposes bipartisan commission to reform Supreme Court system

Joe Biden wants to appoint a bipartisan commission to reform the Supreme Court system because it’s “getting out of whack,” the Democratic presidential nominee said in a new interview.

The former veep pushed the proposal in an interview with “60 Minutes” that’s set to air in full on Sunday — nine days before the election.

“If elected, what I will do is I’ll put together a national commission of – bipartisan commission of scholars, constitutional scholars, Democrats, Republicans, liberal, conservative,” Biden said.

“And I will ask them to over 180 days come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system because it’s getting out of whack – the way in which it’s being handled and it’s not about court packing.”

He added, “There’s a number of other things that our constitutional scholars have debated and I’ve looked to see what recommendations that commission might make.”

Biden has dodged questions on court packing as Republicans look to approve the appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court — though has said he’s “not a fan” of it.

“The last thing we need to do is turn the Supreme Court into just a political football, whoever has the most votes gets whatever they want,” he told “60 Minutes.”

“Presidents come and go. Supreme Court justices stay for generations.”
