Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not about to let this go.
The socialist congresswoman made it her mission to get Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
And now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made one demand that could destroy Clarence Thomas.
Even though Clarence Thomas debunked the smear campaign led by the left-wing website ProPublica about his vacationing with conservative activist Harlan Crow, Ocasio-Cortez continues to push the lie that Justice Thomas is somehow corrupt.
In an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Ocasio-Cortez repeated the falsehood that Justice Thomas did something wrong by not reporting his trips with Crow on his financial disclosure form.
Justice Thomas explained the judicial code of ethics did not require him to disclose personal hospitality at the time of his vacations with Crow and his wife.
Ocasio-Cortez would not drop the matter and instead twisted the fake news media lies about Justice Thomas for a new purpose.
In response to host Dana Bash, Ocasio-Cortez amplified her corruption smear against Thomas and even claimed Thomas implicated other justices when Thomas explained that when he joined the Court he did not have to report personal hospitality on his financial disclosure forms.
“In his statement, he stated that the reason and the rationale for this exemption was personal hospitality from an old friend. And he said himself, in his statement, ‘A friend of 25 years.’ Justice Thomas has been on the court for 30 years, and so, to say what he is admitting in his statement, in an attempt to defend himself is that he began this relationship with a billionaire and receiving these sorts of gifts as after he was appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States. I think that that, in and of itself, indicates a very, very serious problem. And then on top of that, he is now implicating his colleagues,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
Ocasio-Cortez also called on Chief Justice John Roberts to condemn Thomas and launch an investigation into this non-scandal.
“I do believe Chief Justice John Roberts must now come forward and state if he allows, and is allowing, this kind of very serious corruption to happen on on this court.”
Ocasio-Cortez got to the meat of the matter with her real point by stating, “I do not think that this court any longer has legitimacy.”
This is the second time Ocasio-Cortez attacked the judiciary’s legitimacy.
Ocasio-Cortez also told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that the Court lacked legitimacy when a federal judge ruled to suspend the FDA approving the abortion-inducing drug mifepristone and called on Joe Biden to defy the judge’s ruling.
Last term the left lost key cases on Joe Biden’s eviction moratorium, federal COVID vaccine mandate, overturning Roe v. Wade, the Second Amendment, and the ability to impose the Green New Deal through regulatory schemes.
The mifepristone case is coming before the Supreme Court.
Justices already heard arguments in cases to end affirmative action and stop Joe Biden’s student loan bailout scheme.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants the left primed to seize on a defeat as a chance to build support for court-packing and erasing the Court’s conservative majority.
