( – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatened and promised to file impeachment articles against conservative SCOTUS Justices.

Describing the Supreme Court’s ruling on presidential immunity as an “assault on American democracy,” Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) vowed she would be filing articles of impeachment on unnamed justices.

On Monday, the nation’s highest court ruled that former President Donald Trump is immune from prosecution, stemming from actions he committed in his official capacity as President.

The ruling has ignited a storm of criticism from Democrats, including progressive Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the House Oversight Committee.

Following the ruling, the New York Democrat blasted the court’s decision in a statement on social media, vowing to file impeachment articles but didn’t specify who she intended to impeach.

In her statement, Ocasio-Cortez described SCOTUS as becoming “consumed by a corruption crisis” exceeding its control, adding that it had become the responsibility of Congress “to defend” the U.S. “from this authoritarian capture.”

She concluded by declaring her intention to file articles of impeachment when Congress returns from its break.

Ocasio-Cortez’s comments follow a statement House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-New York) released promising House Democrats would conduct “aggressive oversight and legislative activity” regarding SCOTUS to ensure “extreme, far-right justices” who make up the majority become compliant with the U.S. Constitution.

Fellow New York Democrat, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, also blasted the court’s ruling but, like Jeffries, didn’t comment on Ocasio-Cortez’s promise to file impeachment articles.

Schumer described the ruling as a “sad day for America” and democracy, noting the basis of the U.S. “judicial system is that no one is above the law.”
