Graham Criticizes Ocasio-Cortez's Impeachment Efforts

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) expressed strong disapproval of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-N.Y.) plan to impeach Supreme Court justices. He compared this move to previous unsuccessful attempts by the left to "destroy" Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh and predicted that this effort would also fail.

In a post on X, Graham stated, "They tried to destroy Kavanaugh. Now they're trying to impeach Thomas and Alito. I assure you when this is done, they will be 0-3." He further criticized Ocasio-Cortez's approach, stating, "In the AOC world, clickbait is legislating. It is obvious these articles of impeachment are political catnip and are going nowhere."

Ocasio-Cortez's Impeachment Articles

Ocasio-Cortez introduced articles of impeachment against Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, citing their "pattern of refusal to recuse from consequential matters" as a "grave threat to American rule of law" and democracy. She emphasized their repeated failures to disclose financial gifts and called for their impeachment to address the corruption crisis in the court.

Her announcement followed the Court's decision to grant former President Donald Trump partial immunity from felony charges related to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results. Ocasio-Cortez believes this decision undermines the fundamental principle of the U.S. Constitution that no one is above the law, posing a threat to the nation's democratic values.

Reactions to Ocasio-Cortez's Announcement

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, responded to Ocasio-Cortez's announcement with a satirical comment, suggesting that she might impeach the entire Supreme Court.
