President Joe Biden has warned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu against pursuing judicial reform — after his administration considered a radical proposal to populate the Supreme Court with liberal justices.
Times of Israel reports Biden “raised his concerns about the judicial reform advanced by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government during a “frank and constructive” phone call Sunday.
The article fails to mention that Biden made his own most radical proposals to change the US judiciary after Democrats became angry with the conservative makeup of the post-2018 Supreme Court.
For months, Democratic presidential candidates have pushed proposals to “package” the Supreme Court by adding four more seats, then have the president nominate left-wing justices the Senate would endorse.
Biden dropped his previous objections to such ideas and promised to take them into consideration. He appointed a committee to consider the idea of court packing, among other reforms, and submitted its final draft report in 2021.
The committee warned that the benefits of court mobilization were “unconfirmed”. However, Democrats — led by then-House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) — have already legislated on the idea.
Ironically, Nadler did Drove Democrats oppose Israeli judicial reforms. (He is joined by Rep. Brad Schneider of Illinois, who claims to be pro-Israel while campaigning among Jewish voters in his district.)
Biden has yet to extend an invitation to the newly elected prime minister to visit the White House — a common courtesy for foreign leaders, and especially for democratically elected leaders who are close US allies.
