AOC Seethes Over SCOTUS Immunity Ruling: ‘I Intend On Filing Articles Of Impeachment’

Last Updated 3 weeks by Amnon J. Jobi | Amnon Front Page

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) threatened to impeach members of the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday after the high court ruled that presidents have immunity from criminal prosecution for official acts that they take, but not for unofficial conduct.

Justices voted 6-3 along ideological lines in the decision and sent the case in which Trump pleaded not guilty to charges accusing him of unlawfully plotting to overturn the results of the 2020 election back to a lower D.C. court for further review.

“The President is not above the law,” the ruling said. “But under our system of separated powers, the President may not be prosecuted for exercising his core constitutional powers, and he is entitled to at least presumptive immunity from prosecution for his official acts.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded to the ruling in a post on X: “The Supreme Court has become consumed by a corruption crisis beyond its control.”

“Today’s ruling represents an assault on American democracy. It is up to Congress to defend our nation from this authoritarian capture,” the 34-year-old lawmaker said. “I intend on filing articles of impeachment upon our return.”

AG Hamilton, a popular conservative legal account on X, responded to AOC: “Filing articles of impeachment against SCOTUS because they ruled in a way you don’t like is an actual assault on our system. It’s indicative of someone who does not take their oath to the Constitution seriously and doesn’t belong anywhere near a position of authority.”

“This also reveals [the] extent to which the recent attacks on SCOTUS have far more to do with not liking the case outcomes than any real ethical concerns,” he added. “AOC is openly admitting that what is motivating is not liking this ruling.”

Attorney Julie Hamill responded to AOC’s post: “This is dangerous insurrection talk from a woman who has never gone to law school and learned about the three branches of government while on the job in Congress.”

“Just be quiet,” added Rep. Greg Murphy (R-NC). “People are so damn tired of the theatrics.”
