AOC Challenges SCOTUS ‘Legitimacy,’ Threatens Conservative Justices  With Impeachment


Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) went on CNN and accused the Supreme Court’s conservative justice majority of abusing its power before threatening some Congressional action.

She said: “That, I believe, is an expansion of power that we really must be focusing on. The danger of this court and the abuse of power in this court, particularly as it is related to the entanglements around conflicts of interest as well.

“The courts, if they were to proceed without any check on their power, without any balance on their power, then we will start to see an undemocratic and, frankly, dangerous authoritarian expansion of power in the Supreme Court.

‘Which is what we are seeing now.

“From the overturning of abortion rights to the ruling that discrimination and, frankly, stripping the full personhood and dignity of LGBTQ people in the United States. 

“These are the types of rulings that signal a dangerous creep towards authoritarianism and centralization of power in the court.

The Court has not been receiving the adequate oversight necessary in order to preserve their own legitimacy.

“And in the process,” she added, “they themselves have been destroying the legitimacy of the court, which is profoundly dangerous for our entire democracy.

“And so I believe that if Chief Justice Roberts will not come before Congress for an investigation voluntarily, I believe that we should be considering subpoenas.

“We should be considering investigations. We must pass much more binding and stringent ethics guidelines where we see members of the Supreme Court potentially breaking the law, as we saw in the refusal with Clarence Thomas to recuse himself from cases implicating his wife in Jan. 6.”
