Video of Rep. Ocasio-Cortez on Meet The Press:
Chuck Todd requested the congresswoman from New York, “Do you think lying in a confirmation hearing is an impeachable offense?”
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez answered, “I believe so. I believe so. I believe lying under oath is an impeachable offense and violating federal law and not disclosing income from political organizations as Clarence Thomas did years ago is also potentially an impeachable offense. 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.”
There is no such thing as a authorized customary for impeachment. It doesn’t matter how lawyerly Barrett and Kavanaugh answered questions overturning Roe in the event that they deliberately deceived members of Congress whether or not it was in affirmation hearings or non-public conferences if the Home Judiciary Committee needs to carry impeachment hearings and refer them to the complete Home for impeachment, there’s nothing stopping them, so Democrats have to cease making up imaginary authorized thresholds to constrain themselves.
The case for the impeachment of Clarence Thomas is extra simple. Justice Thomas and his wife have a track record of corruption that goes back years before 1/6.
It doesn’t matter if the Senate gained’t vote to convict. Holding these justices accountable could be the aim. The Supreme Court docket is uncontrolled, and it’s time for the Legislative Department to place a test on the best court docket within the land.
