Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Biden refuses to say if he'd pack the Supreme Court with liberals if Republicans fill Ginsburg's seat”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden refused to say whether he'd sign on to a plan to pack the Supreme Court with more liberal justices if the Republicans are able to fill late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat on the high court.

"Let me tell you why I'm not gonna answer that question. Because it would shift all the focus," Biden said.

Democrats have tried to pressure the Republicans against trying to fill the seat, vacated by Ginsburg's death, by threatening to expand the court and pack it with more liberal justices. The Constitution does not stipulate how many justices should be on the Supreme Court.

"That's what he wants, he never wants to talk about the issue at hand he always tries to change the subject," Biden said of the president.
