You can read some good coverage on this issue at Red State. Earlier on the first post today I linked to Thomas Lifson explaining why Nadler's surprise move is a sign of Dem desperation--they see continuing and even increasing disasters for the Zhou Baiden regime. That's the only rational explanation for not waiting for Zhou's "Commission" to even meet. At Red State Brandon Morse addresses this:
The reason for GOP enthusiasm is totally obvious: This is an incredible surefire win for the GOP going into Election 2022. Pelosi has only two votes to spare in her House--will that fail? It just may, and that signals the type of existential desperation that Daniel McCarthy talks about:
The Democratic party is dying. That may be hard to believe since Democrats control both houses of Congress and won the last presidential election with a record 81 million votes. But the exiguous margins of their hold on the House and Senate, with fewer than 51 percent of the seats in either chamber, tell another story, as does the desperation of their struggle to abolish the filibuster and federalize election law.
Those policy aims are of a piece with dreams of packing the Supreme Court — and packing the Senate too, by admitting tiny Democratic bastions as new states. The left wing of the party even assails the constitutional principle behind the Senate itself, the idea of equal representation of the states.
Simply put, Democrats know they can no longer win by the old agreed-upon rules, constitutional or otherwise. ...
So, the Dem schemes, says McCarthy are a sign of weakness--not strength. Before you argue against him, consider that the polling is strongly against the Dems on this SCOTUS issue. The GOP would not be so openly elated if they didn't know this too:

His moderate Democrat colleagues facing tough races next year won't thank him for this stunt. https://t.co/TUYQI63gE3
It’s true.. Republicans just have— Matt Whitlock (@mattdizwhitlock) January 17, 2021
✅ A 6-3 Supreme Court
✅ 50 Senate seats
✅ A narrow House minority that will likely be a majority in 2 years
✅ A majority of state legislatures
✅ A majority of Governors mansions
But yes, otherwise gutted. https://t.co/7AnuzMyMgr
