Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes is attempting to push a Supreme Court justice from court.
According to Breitbart News, AOC “called for Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer to retire at the end of the court’s term and allow President Biden to nominate his successor.”
During a recent interview, AOC was directly asked if she thought Justice Beyer should step down:
We have had very difficult experiences with making I believe the opposite mistake, and especially if Senate Democrats are not going to pass reforms on HR 1, we cannot rely solely on a wish of winning elections, particularly in the Senate when voting rights are under attack in Georgia, Arizona and Texas across the country And if we’re not going to pass HR 1 with the preemptive clauses that can roll some of that voter suppression attacks back, yeah, I believe that we should protect our Supreme Court, and I bet that should absolutely be a consideration.
When the host asked again, AOC doubled down.
“You know I, it’s something that I’d think about, but I, I would probably lean towards yes,” said AOC. “But yes, you’re asking me this question, so I’ve just, I would give more thought to it but, but I’m inclined to say yes.”
