AOC threatens impeachment against ‘corrupted’ justices

by ian

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) is taking action on her displeasure with the Supreme Court’s immunity ruling.

In a post on X made yesterday, AOC indicated that she intends to file “articles of impeachment” against the Supreme Court. Her reason for doing so is because the court “has become consumed by a corruption crisis beyond its control”. She further says that the court’s recent immunity ruling “represents an assault on American democracy.”

Although she did not specify which justices would be the target of this impeachment, it is suspected that Ocasio-Cortez would target the more conservative-leaning justices.

The House will be in recess until July 8. If AOC files her impeachment articles, it would likely go to the Republican-led House Judiciary Committee for review.

President Joe Biden also commented on the ruling, saying that it set a “dangerous precedent.”
