Whiners Gonna Whine: Democrats Threaten Court Upheaval After Barrett confirmation; Barrett Hit With Impeachment Calls Over Pennsylvania Election Case, and related stories

Democrats threaten court upheaval after Amy Coney Barrett confirmation:
Prominent Democrats are vowing that Republicans will rue the day they confirmed Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
Democratic lawmakers both in and out of the Senate, which voted to confirm President Trump’s nominee to the nation’s highest bench on Monday, threatened a myriad of proposals following the justice’s swearing-in.
Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), a close Joe Biden ally who sits in the Democratic presidential nominee’s former Senate seat and on the Judiciary Committee, warned during an appearance on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” Monday evening that “we’ve got to look at our federal courts as a whole.”
Asked by Maddow how Democrats would be able to get retribution for Republicans achieving a 6-3 conservative court, the Delaware senator said, “[W]e’ve got to have a wide-open conversation about how do we rebalance our courts … Because we’ve seen hundreds of conservative judges put on circuit courts and district courts all over this country in the last four years, in many cases, too young, too unqualified, and too far right to be allowed to sit peaceably without our re-examining the process, the results, and the consequences.” --->READ MORE HERE

Amy Coney Barrett hit with impeachment calls over Pennsylvania election case
Anti-Trumpers are calling to impeach Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett less than 24 hours after she was confirmed, paving the way for Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden to add justices to the high court should he win in November.
Norman Ornstein, a political science scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, and Alexander Heffner, a PBS host, argued Justice Barrett should be “impeached promptly” if she doesn’t recuse herself from weighing in on an election challenge out of Pennsylvania.
“She won’t be convicted off the Court. But this lays the groundwork for adding a 10th justice as first balancing act of Biden and new Congress,” Mr. Heffner tweeted. --->READ MORE HERE
