Well, there is the judiciary act of 1869"there is supposed to be 9"there is supposed to be 9. not 8. it was your president TRUMPs duty to fill the vacancy. btw, it wasnt with someone the scumbag demonrats would have picked. thats the best part. any how, do be sure to watch her get nominated very soon, it should be a great show for every AMERICAN.Nothing in the Constitution said the Senate had to fill a vacant court seat or consider an appointment from an opposition party.what part of the constitution do you not understand? quit your whining, typical demonrat, and deal with it. it is called fulfilling the obligation. duhRepublicans knew that their new rule of an opposition party does not confirm SCOTUS judges would someday bite them in the ass.......But they lived in the present and did it anyway.If you and yours want to increase the number of justices IF you have the power, do it. But remember the worm always turns and someday, probably soon, the Republicans will control the White House and Senate again and two can play your game. Ending the judicial filibuster already bit you on the ass with Barret. Are you really sure that you want to double down on a losing hand?
Same thing with adding judges to the court. Dems will live in the present and expand the court. They are willing to bank that it may be decades before Republicans win the White House and all of Congress
Nothing in the Constitution says Congress cannot expand the court
Utter ignorance. There is no such "supposed" number of seats.
