What Will Happen If Liberals Pack the Supreme Court

 
 
October 17 2020
 

Good morning from Washington, where liberals threaten to add justices to the Supreme Court because President Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett to fill a vacancy. It would be a historic  "power grab," Vice President Mike Pence says. We've got coverage and commentary. Plus: censoring the New York Post; judicial meddling in an election; and interrupting a Supreme Court nominee. On this date in 1973, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries announces it will cut off oil to the U.S. and others that helped Israel militarily in that month's Yom Kippur War. Enjoy your weekend.
