Democratic nominee Joe Biden says that if elected, he will convene a national commission to study the court system, his latest answer to questions about whether he would seek to add justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In an interview with "60 Minutes" scheduled to air Sunday on CBS, the former vice president said he envisions a bipartisan group of constitutional scholars who would after 180 days make recommendations to reform the court system, which Biden called "out of whack."

"It's not about court packing," Biden said. "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."
