Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” said if elected, he will put together a “bipartisan commission” of legal scholars that will be tasked to study and provide recommendations to reform the “out of whack” judicial system, his latest punt on giving a clear response as to whether he would pack the Supreme Court.
