“heavily staffed by legal professors with revisionist views on the nation’s top judicial body”
These professors are open to expanding the Supreme Court now, but do you think they would agree under Trump? Not a chance.

Biden’s court packing committee contains an army of profs open to altering Supreme Court
President Joe Biden unveiled a new commission to explore the possibility of packing the Supreme Court. Although the commission does contain some constitutional originalists, it is heavily staffed by legal professors with revisionist views on the nation’s top judicial body.
The Biden administration unveiled a “Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States,” which will “provide an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform” — including “the length of service and turnover of justices on the Court” and “the membership and size of the Court.”
Although the White House insists that the commission is meant to be “bipartisan,” several of its members — both right-leaning and left-leaning — appear to hold some degree of revisionist views on the Supreme Court.
For instance, Michelle Adams — a law professor at Yeshiva University — once suggested that “it might be time to take a fresh look at term limits for Supreme Court justices.”
Meanwhile, Laurence Tribe — a law professor emeritus at Harvard University — has frequently characterized President Donald Trump’s nomination of conservative justices as “court packing.”
“There has never been a Supreme Court confirmation while a presidential election is underway,” he wrote during the confirmation process of Justice Amy Coney Barrett. “The Constitution permits it, but it’s an irresponsible abuse of power designed to kill the ACA and pack the Court to back up Trump’s plan to stop counting on Nov 3.”
