Pelosi shoots down Democratic bill to expand Supreme Court

Nancy Pelosi says she does not support the bill to expand the US Supreme Court from nine justices to thirteen as proposed by House Democrats.

When asked about the legislation, the Speaker of the House said that the proposal is not out of the question for the future, but she would not be bringing it to the floor of the lower chamber of Congress.

Ms Pelosi said that she supports Joe Biden’s commission to report back in six months on possible changes to the court, its jurisdiction, and the lifetime terms of its justices.
