AOC calls for impeachment of SCOTUS justices over immunity ruling

"It is up to Congress to defend our nation from this authoritarian capture. I intend on filing articles of impeachment upon our return,"


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that she would be filing articles of impeachment against justices on the US Supreme Court after they sided with Donald Trump in the immunity case brought by Special Counsel Jack Smith.   

AOC posted, "The Supreme Court has become consumed by a corruption crisis beyond its control," after the ruling came down in Trump's favor 6-3.   

"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," she added.   

In other spats with more conservative justices on the court, AOC has taken aim at Justice Samuel Alito recently, after his wife said she flew an upside-down flag at their home after an argument with a neighbor. She also called for Justice Clarence Thomas to resign last year. 
Many online slammed AOC for the post about impeachment. Elon Musk also responded with a parody story from Grok, titled, "AOC to Supreme Court: 'You're Impeached, You're Impeached, EVERYBODY'S Impeached!'" 

On Monday, the court ruled that those who fill the role of the president have absolute immunity for actions under core constitutional powers. This would also apply to Trump when he was in office, though not for unofficial acts. The opinion of the court was written by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.   

In the summary of the court's decision, it read, "The President enjoys no immunity for his unofficial acts, and not everything the President does is official. 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."  

"The President therefore may not be prosecuted for exercising his core constitutional powers, and he is entitled, at a minimum, to a presumptive immunity from prosecution for all his official acts. That immunity applies equally to all occupants of the Oval Office, regardless of politics, policy, or party," it added.   

Some actions from Trump in the decision were ruled to be protected under his official acts while others, as the decision stated, "Present more difficult questions." As a result, the case was sent back down to the lower courts for further review.
