Rep. Jordan was requested about Democrats increasing the Supreme Courtroom, after which he spiraled right into a meltdown:
Yeah, I imply, what do we want a fee for? The place we all know the place they’re at. They’re attempting to pack the courts, and I assume they’re going to put collectively a fee, however we already know the place Democrats need to go. It’s all about political energy.
Assume within the final six weeks, Democrats within the Home, thank goodness for the filibuster. They’d move laws that will seriously change police regulation. They handed laws that will seriously change police regulation, and three weeks in the past, they handed laws that will seriously change immigration regulation on the identical time there’s a disaster on our southern border. They handed two payments that will give amnesty between 2 and three million unlawful immigrants.
That is all political energy and radical insurance policies which might be coming from the Democrats. We higher hope that Senator Manchin and Senator Sinema maintain their phrase and we don’t get filibuster change as a result of if we do, all of this may turn into regulation.
Jordan confirmed what Republicans are scared of. Republicans are terrified that Democrats will shield voting rights and the 2020 election will turn into the brand new regular. Republicans worry minority participation rising within the electoral course of, and in the event that they don’t have management of the Supreme Courtroom to dam voting rights legal guidelines and marketing campaign finance reform, their maintain on energy will evaporate.
Republicans see their energy slipping away, and it’s freaking them out.
