Court-Packing Lessons: Liner Notes

I have a new column posted at The Federalist, “Court-Packing Is Democrats’ Most Dangerous Attack On The Republic.”

There wasn’t much left out for space in this one. In fact, this was a case where I had done a bit of research on court-packing — inspired by National Review’s Dan McLaughlin — and decided to do a brief pitch by email. But the email ended up being about the length of a column. So when it got greenlit, I was mostly editing a piece I already wrote.

I could have gone into further detail on the findings of Ohio State political scientist Gregory A. Caldeira on the ins and outs of FDR’s failed 1937 plan, but there is enough in my column to give readers the flavor — and a sense of why a court-packing effort now might go quite differently.
