NYT reporter Alexander Burns claims Kamala Harris admitted she supports court packing

A reporter with the New York Times has claimed that Democrat vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris admitted to him that she wants to pack the Supreme Court.

During a Thursday episode of the newspaper’s podcast, NYT journalist Alexander Burns said that Sen. Harris (D-CA) told him last year that she was “absolutely open” to court-packing.

“Senator Harris told me in an interview, actually, that she was absolutely open to doing that,” Burns said. 

WATCH:

Both Harris and Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden have remained silent on the issue and repeatedly refused to answer questions on the subject.

According to Burns, Harris and Biden are dodging court-packing questions to avoid "alienating moderate voters."

In a separate video from the interview mentioned by Burns, Harris indeed tells The New York Times that she was “open to that discussion” of packing the Supreme Court.

WATCH:

According to The Daily Wire, the remarks from Burns come after Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told reporters yesterday: “You’ll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over.”

“You know, the moment I answer that question, the headline in every one of your papers will be about that, other than focusing on what’s happening now,” Biden continued.

“The election has begun.

"There’s never been a court appointment once an election has begun.”

Later in the day, Harris also refused to answer the question, saying: “The voters need to first decide who’s the next President of the United States. Period.”

Harris dodged Vice President Mike Pence’s questions about her position regarding court-packing during this week’s vice presidential debate and tried instead to put the onus on the Trump administration.

“Let’s talk about packing the court then,” Harris said.

“So, the Trump-Pence administration has been – because I sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Susan, as you mentioned, and I’ve witnessed the appointments, for lifetime appointments to the federal courts, district courts, Courts of Appeal – people who are purely ideological people who have been reviewed by legal professional organizations and found to be not competent, are substandard.

"And do you know that of the 50 people who President Trump appointed to the Court of Appeals for lifetime appointments, not one is Black?

"This is what they’ve been doing.

"You want to talk about packing a court?

"Let’s have that discussion.”

A new poll released this week found that voters do not support court-packing even when presented with the idea in response to the Republicans confirming Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the nation’s highest court.

“Only 1 in 3 registered voters favor a Democratic proposal to expand the Supreme Court in order to install a liberal majority, according to a new poll,” The Washington Examiner reported.

“A Washington Examiner/YouGov poll found that 47% oppose growing the Supreme Court beyond its current nine members, while only 34% back the idea, popularly known as ‘court-packing.'”
