Kamala won’t answer the question either

By Scott Shackford, Reason 

Sen. Kamala Harris (D–Calif.) was asked directly whether she and Vice President Joe Biden would try to expand or pack the Supreme Court if they were elected—and she did not give an answer.

The question came not from moderator Susan Page, but from Vice President Mike Pence. In response to a sparring session about whether President Donald Trump should continue with the nominating process for Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court or wait until after the election, Pence took the moment to ask Harris for a straight answer.

She did not give one. Instead she gave a history lesson about how President Abraham Lincoln once declined to nominate a Supreme Court justice prior to the election, insisting that the American people should choose the president first. (It was a faulty history lesson). 

“Joe and I are very clear,” she said. “The American people are voting right now. It should be their decision about who will serve on this most important body for a lifetime.”

Moderator Susan Page attempted to move on, not noting that Harris hadn’t answered the question. Pence then broke in to point out that because Americans are voting right now, they should know if Harris and Biden “are going to pack the Supreme Court if [they] don’t get their way with this nomination.”
