New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for Supreme Court Justices she claimed lied about their view on Roe v. Wade to be impeached.
Ocasio-Cortez shared the comments on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says U.S. Supreme Court justices who “misled” Americans during their confirmation hearings about whether or not they supported overturning Roe v. Wade should be impeached and face “consequences” for lying under oath https://t.co/GJSF5xQRGu

“I believe so. I believe lying under oath is an impeachable offense. I believe violating federal law and not disclosing income from political organizations as Clarence Thomas did years ago is also potentially an impeachable offense,” she answered regarding whether the justices should be impeached.
“I believe that not recusing from cases with clear family members involved with deep violations with conflicts of interest is an impeachable offense and should be seriously considered, including by senators like Joe Manchin and Susan Collins,” she added.
Trump wasn’t enough. Now they want conservative Justices impeached.

The call for impeachment over being pro-life is unlikely to happen, but instead shows the extreme reaction by Ocasio-Cortez when she doesn’t get the outcome she wants.
Instead of blasting the court over its decision, her response should be to pursue democratic ways to create change, just as she has urged others to do.
