Former Attorney General Eric Holder may not be running for the White House in 2020 as many had speculated but he will continue to be a big-time player for the anti-Trump resistance that has taken aim at the nation’s institutions in their quest to disenfranchise millions.
Barack Obama’s ruthless hatchet man recently joined anti-constitution leftists in calling for the elimination of the Electoral College when he threw in with radical National Popular Vote Interstate Compact which wishes to reshape American democracy according to the whims of the coastal elite.
A good reform measure to support. Change the Electoral College by having a state’s electoral votes go to the national popular vote winner – not the person who won the state. The candidate who gets the most votes – nationally – is elected. Real democracy. https://t.co/tPfNWdKQ46

Now Holder has moved on to waging war against another element of a system that the left despises: the Supreme Court.
During a speech at Yale Law School, the career fixer regaled his Ivy League audience with the idea that if a Democrat wins the presidency next November, then that leader should expand the bench to compensate for the addition of Trump justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh as well as create an insurance policy for the day when Ruth Bader Ginsburg either retires or dies.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that the next Democratic president should considering packing the Supreme Court by adding additional seats.
Holder made the comment during a discussion at Yale Law National Security Group, a spokesperson for Holder confirmed to The Hill.
“In response to a question, Attorney General Holder said that given the unfairness, unprecedented obstruction, and disregard of historical precedent by [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans, when Democrats retake the majority they should consider expanding the Supreme Court to restore adherence to previously accepted norms for judicial nominations,” said Patrick Rodenbush, spokesperson for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, which Holder heads.
The sentiment was confirmed by Holder’s mouthpiece:

It wouldn’t be the first time that a Democrat has tried to pack the courts.
It nearly happened during the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt – the liberal hero who rounded up Japanese-Americans stole their property and threw them into internment camps – so the idea may not be as improbable as it seems.
FDR’s nefarious plan was quickly defeated but would it fly in today’s toxic political climate and would congressional Republicans be able to grow a spine if it was attempted?
The best solution for Americans who value constitutional principles is to get out and vote in overwhelming numbers next November to reelect President Trump and thwart any attempts by extremist Democrats to change the rules of the game because they can no longer win honestly.
