AOC isn’t backing down.
Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez along with a number of other Democrats are now leading the charge to unseat a number of conservative judges from the Supreme Court.
According to Newsmax, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez along with Democrat Ted Lieu is demanding that the Senate Judiciary Committee to make a determination about whether or not U.S. Supreme Court justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch lied about their plan to overturn Roe during their confirmation hearings.
In a letter written to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ocasio-Cortez and Lieu said, As nominees during their confirmation hearings, the justices did not tell the American people, or the United States Senate that Roe was ‘egregiously wrong from the start,’ or that ‘Roe and [1992’s] Casey represent an error that cannot be allowed to stand. In fact, they expressed the exact opposite position.”
Ocasio-Cortez and Lieu are now attempting to figure out a way to unseat these Supreme Court justices because they believe they lied during their confirmation hearings.
Furthermore, Republican Sen. Susan Collins and Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin also accused the justices of lying as well during their hearings.
In a recent interview, Ocasio-Cortez stated, “there must be consequences for such a deeply destabilizing action and hostile takeover of our democratic institutions. I believe that lying under oath is an impeachable offense.”
The letter further said, “We must call out their actions for what they were before the moment passes, so that we can prevent such a mendacious denigration of our fundamental rights and the rule of law from ever happening again.”
