AOC caught up in impeachment plans that have left Washington, D.C. stunned beyond belief

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is known for making headlines. But she’s constantly making them for all the wrong reasons.

And AOC has been caught up in impeachment plans that have left Washington, D.C. stunned beyond belief.

The Left has recently made an enemy out of the United States Supreme Court.

They can’t stand that the Court isn’t ruling in favor of their radical agenda.

Democrats hatred of the Supreme Court reached an all-time high in June of 2022 after the nation’s high Court reversed Roe v. Wade with the Dobbs decision. That ruling ended up bringing the issue of abortion back to the states.

The Left of course claimed that they lost a constitutional right that day which is an utterly bogus claim.

But nonetheless, Democrats have made it their mission to try and destroy the integrity of the Supreme Court by proposing to either dismantle it completely or packing it with liberal justices.

AOC Targets Supreme Court Justices with Impeachment

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) announced her intention to file articles of impeachment against certain Supreme Court justices following a ruling on presidential immunity. This unprecedented move comes in response to the Court’s decision on Monday, which granted limited immunity to presidents for actions taken while in office.

The historical context of judicial impeachment in the United States is sparse, with Associate Justice Samuel Chase being the only justice ever impeached, an event that occurred in 1805. Chase was ultimately acquitted by the Senate.

In a fiery post on X, Ocasio-Cortez declared, “The Supreme Court has become consumed by a corruption crisis beyond its control.”

She continued, “Today’s ruling represents an assault on American democracy. It is up to Congress to defend our nation from this authoritarian capture. I intend on filing articles of impeachment upon our return,” though she did not specify which justices she intends to target.

The Court’s ruling, decided by a six-to-three vote, established that presidents are protected by limited immunity from criminal prosecutions for actions taken in their official capacity. This decision is expected to have significant implications for the legal proceedings against former President Donald Trump related to the January 6 Capitol riot. Breitbart News’s Joel Pollak explained that the case will be remanded and may result in the dismissal of some or all charges facing Trump in federal court in Washington, DC.

Former President Trump celebrated the decision, describing it as a “big win” for democracy, and it comes as a boost to his reelection campaign. In contrast, Democrats and the Biden campaign expressed strong disapproval. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) condemned the ruling as a “disgraceful decision by the MAGA SCOTUS,” while Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) criticized the Court for acting “rogue.”

A senior Biden campaign official also weighed in, stating, “Today’s ruling doesn’t change the facts, so let’s be very clear about what happened on January 6: Donald Trump snapped after he lost the 2020 election and encouraged a mob to overthrow the results of a free and fair election.”

Chief Justice John Roberts, who authored the majority opinion, highlighted the gravity of the legal question at hand: “This case poses a question of lasting significance: When may a former President be prosecuted for official acts taken during his Presidency? Our Nation has never before needed an answer.” He emphasized the importance of not letting immediate concerns overshadow the principles of separation of powers and the long-term implications for the Republic.

Roberts clarified that while a president is not immune for unofficial acts, Congress cannot criminalize the president’s conduct in carrying out executive duties.

“The President is not above the law. But Congress may not criminalize the President’s conduct in carrying out the responsibilities of the Executive Branch under the Constitution. And the system of separated powers designed by the Framers has always demanded an energetic, independent Executive,” he wrote. The ruling asserts that the president is entitled to presumptive immunity from prosecution for official acts, a protection that applies to all occupants of the Oval Office, regardless of their political affiliation.

The case in question, Trump v. United States, No. 23-939, continues to stir significant debate about the limits of presidential power and the accountability of the nation’s highest officeholders.
