Senator Chuck Schumer responded to inquiries about the potential of Democrats packing the Supreme Court should they take over the Senate and the Presidency in 2021 by stating that nothing is off the table.
According to Town Hall:
Ahead of the start of confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett Monday morning, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer backed calls for Democrats to pack the Supreme Court if they win the Senate majority and the White House on Election Day.

Schumer’s statement comes 24-hours after Democrat Senator Chris Coons told Fox News Sunday that Barrett’s nomination and likely confirmation, despite qualifications and constitutionality of her appointment, justifies packing the court in the future. He also lied about the definition of court packing.
