    That seems unlikely, considering that the Constitution gives the Congress the power to add or remove seats.

    SCOTUS is not Congress. It gives its opinion on existing cases. It doesn't (and cannot) just make things up to deliberate over. So if some case on court packing deadlocked in the lower courts SCOTUS could decide to hear it. Otherwise, no.

    Remind us, where exactly in the Constitution does it specify the number of judges on the SC?  Oh, it doesn't?  It's just another "historical norm" of the sort Trump has been exploding regularly?  Well ALLRIIGHTEE then!!!
