Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York has filed articles of impeachment against Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.

In a statement, AOC claimed Thomas and Alito must recuse themselves from cases “in which they hold widely documented financial and personal entanglements has created an unchecked corruption crisis on the Supreme Court.”

She added that the Justices’ alleged actions “constitute a grave threat to American rule of law, the integrity of our democracy, and one of the clearest cases for which the tool of impeachment was designed.”

The articles of impeachment were co-sponsored by seven House Democrats.

Here’s what NBC News reported:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, saying that their refusal to recuse from certain prominent cases “constitutes a grave threat to American rule of law.”

In a statement, the New York congresswoman said that justices’ refusal to step aside from cases “in which they hold widely documented financial and personal entanglements” has created an “unchecked corruption crisis on the Supreme Court.”

This, she said, “constitutes a grave threat to American rule of law, the integrity of our democracy, and one of the clearest cases for which the tool of impeachment was designed.”

The high court did not immediately return a request for comment.

In her statement, Ocasio-Cortez said Alito’s impeachment resolution centered on his “refusal to recuse from cases in which he had a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party in cases before the court” and his “failure to disclose financial income, gifts and reimbursements, property interests, liabilities, and transactions, among other information.”

The resolutions were co-sponsored by Reps. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., Rashida Talib, D-Mich., Bonnie Watson Coleman, D-N.J., Delia Ramirez, D-Ill., Maxwell Frost, D-Fla., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. and Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y.

Politico added these details:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez filed separate articles of impeachment Wednesday against Supreme Court justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.

The articles cite the failure by both justices to disclose gifts from individuals with business before the court and their refusal to recuse themselves from cases that they or their family members have close ties to.

“These failures alone would amount to a deep transgression worthy of standard removal in any lower court, and would disqualify any nominee to the highest court from confirmation in the first place,” Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said in a statement.

The move has slim chances of success in the GOP-controlled House, but is an escalation of Democrats’ efforts to probe what they view as ethical misconduct in the nation’s highest court.

We originally brought you this report last week:

AOC Plans To File Impeachment Papers Against Supreme Court Justices

Earlier today the Supreme Court finally issued its much-awaited ruling on the topic of Presidential Immunity.

See that report here:

BREAKING: Supreme Court Rules On Trump’s Absolute Immunity Case

The Opinion was not quite a full win for President Trump (I'll be posting a full analysis on that shortly), but it definitely was a total loss for Democrats.

Want to know how I know that?

Because they're melting down!

The biggest of which comes from Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who posted this:

The Supreme Court has become consumed by a corruption crisis beyond its control.

Today’s ruling represents an assault on American democracy. It is up to Congress to defend our nation from this authoritarian capture.

I intend on filing articles of impeachment upon our return.

I think she's actually serious!

If the Democrats can't stack the Courts, they'll just try to remove all the Conservative Justices!

Speaking of, she doesn't exactly say who she will be it all 6 of them AOC?

Can we please get an update on this?

I can't wait to watch this Circus!

Bronx Rally Highlights: Trump Receives MASSIVE Welcome in One of the Bluest Counties

It seems nothing these Democrats do in their courtroom can get our President's spirit down!

Okay, so Trump rolls into one of the Democrats strongholds.

The Bronx, New York.

And what does he see?

Thousands upon thousands of supporters, cheering him on!

Here's there reaching out to the Bronx community to secure votes.

And it seems the people are with him.

They can see through the Manhattan circus trial and they know a winner when they see one.

The Associated Press reports:

NEW YORK (AP) — President Trump campaigned Thursday in one of the most Democratic counties in the nation, holding a rally in the South Bronx as he tries to woo minority voters days before a Manhattan jury will begin deliberations on whether to convict him of felony charges in his criminal hush money trial.

Trump, in his speech, cast himself as a better president for Black and Hispanic voters than President Joe Biden as he railed against Biden on immigration, an issue Trump has made central to his campaign. He insisted “the biggest negative impact” of the influx of migrants in New York is losing jobs, housing, everything they can lose.

Some in the crowd responded by chanting, “Build the wall,” a reference to Trump's push while in the White House to build a U.S.-Mexico border barrier.

With Trump confined to New York for much of the last six weeks because of his trial, the presumptive Republican nominee’s campaign has planned a series of local stops across his hometown before and after court. He visited a bodega in Harlem, dropped by a construction site and held a photo op at a local firehouse.

But the Bronx rally was his first event open to the general public as he insists he is making a play to win an overwhelmingly Democratic state that hasn’t backed a Republican for president since Ronald Reagan in 1984. Besides creating a spectacle of rallygoers and protesters, the rally also gave Trump an opportunity to highlight what he argues are advantages on economic and immigration issues that could cut into key Democratic voting blocs.

“The strategy is to demonstrate to the voters of the Bronx and New York that this isn’t your typical presidential election, that Donald Trump is here to represent everybody and get our country back on track,” said Florida Republican Rep. Byron Donalds, a potential Trump running mate who grew up in Brooklyn and spoke at the rally.

The former president opened his rally with an ode to his hometown, talking about its humble beginnings as a small Dutch trading post before becoming a glamorous capital of culture that “inspired the entire world.” While Trump established residency in Florida in 2019, he reminisced on Thursday about his efforts to revitalize Central Park's Wollman Rink and people he knew in the real estate business.

“Everyone wanted to be here," he told the enthusiastic audience. “But sadly this is now a city in decline."

“If a New Yorker can’t save this country," he went on to say, “no one can.”

Hours before Trump’s rally was set to begin, a long line of supporters decked out in red “Make America Great Again” hats and other Trump gear snaked around the park, waiting for security screening to begin. People were still entering the park well into Trump's speech, with some eager supporters sprinting up a hill toward the rally site after getting through security.

The Bronx Democratic Party protested Trump's appearance with its own event at the park.

Members of multiple unions were present, holding signs that said “The Bronx says no to Trump” in both English and Spanish.

“We are used to elected officials, to government officials, to opportunists of all kinds who come to our community and use our painful history,” said Democratic State Rep. Amanda Septimo, who represents the South Bronx. "They talk about the Bronx and everything that’s wrong with it, but they never get to the part that talks about what they’re going to do for the Bronx and we know that Trump is never going to get to that part in his speech.”
