Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) criticized the Supreme Court, accusing it of engaging in a “dangerous authoritarian expansion of power.” In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” she expressed concern about the court’s role and its encroachment on congressional authority. Ocasio-Cortez argued that the court’s actions, such as overturning abortion rulings and making decisions against LGBTQ rights, demonstrated an abuse of power and threatened democracy. She called for limits on the justices’ power, emphasizing the importance of checks and balances. Ocasio-Cortez also suggested the possibility of impeachment as a means to address misconduct and ensure the court’s accountability and legitimacy.
