Warren Statement on Supreme Court Decision on Corner Post v. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve

Washington, D.C. – Following today’s Supreme Court decision in Corner Post v. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) issued the following statement: 

“For every federal law passed in the last forty years, Congress understood that agency experts would execute the will of democratically elected representatives and that court challenges would occur during a short, defined time period. That was settled law until this week. Today’s decision, along with the Court’s decision to overturn Chevron, is an assault on the separation of powers under the Constitution. An extremist Supreme Court stacked by Donald Trump has snatched power away from an elected Congress and handed lawmaking power over to a few far-right unelected judges. This Supreme Court is undermining the foundations of our democracy; Congress must restore balance by adding more justices to the Court.”
