(FOX NEWS) – Democratic lawmakers are set to unveil legislation Thursday to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court.
Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Reps. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., Hank Johnson, D-Ga., and Mondaire Jones, D-N.Y., will hold a press conference on Thursday to introduce the proposal on the steps of the Supreme Court.
Given their control of the White House and the Senate, the legislation could allow them to supersede the current conservative majority by “packing” the Court with liberal justices.
Spokespeople for the lawmakers’ offices did not return Fox News’ requests Wednesday night for further details.
The Intercept reported on Wednesday that the legislation will propose expanding the court to 13 justices, from nine.
