One telling moment during Tuesday’s debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden: The latter refused to say whether he would “pack” the U.S. Supreme Court (with radical leftists).
“I’m not going to answer that question,” Biden barked in response to a question related to Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Barrett, who clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, has a reputation for being a constitutional originalist, which is precisely what a federal and/or Supreme Court judge should be.
Now, Harris is refusing to answer the question, as well — which tells us everything we need to know (that, yes, they will pack the court with hard-left Marxists).
Democratic nominee Joe Biden declined to say if he would “pack” the Supreme Court during Tuesday's debate if Senate Republicans confirm Amy Coney Barrett.
'Whatever position I take on that, that will become the issue,' Biden said. 'The American people should speak. You should go out and vote.'
President Trump chimed in, repeating moderator Chris Wallace's question about if Biden would 'pack the court' but the former vice president didn't answer.
Later in the evening, Harris dodged the same question on two different networks.
CBS News' John Dickerson confronted Harris, saying Biden's non-answer sounded like a 'straight-up dodge' and asked why he refuses to talk about it.
'Well, I think he's very clear, John, which is he is focused, as we all should be, on the next 35 days,' Harris said. 'He is focused on … the process.”

Later, CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Harris the same question, and this is what she said in response:
'We are 35 days away from an election… probably the most important election of our lifetime and out children's lifetime, and there is nothing about these next 35 days that Joe or I will take for granted. The focus right now is on reminding people that we have this election that is very much in play… we are in the midst of an election.'
Kamala Harris for the second time tonight refuses to directly answer a question about court-packing. She did not close the door on it, noting they can deal with it "later."

So, now we know: Yes, a Biden administration will pack the U.S. Supreme Court with hard-left radicals by expanding it if the opportunity arises.
All the more reason to reject these Commies.
President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!
He wants zero rates and QE4!
You must prepare for the financial reset
