It was a bad day for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
She appealed to the Supreme Court in desperation.
But she was left stunned after receiving the bad news.
Democrats are furious that the U.S. Supreme Court is controlled by conservative judges in a 6-3 majority.
For years, liberal judges had control of the Court and used their power for judicial activism that went against the Constitution.
Now that the pendulum has swung the other way, they don’t know what to do.
With an important case about the 2024 presidential election about to go before the Supreme Court, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is desperately appealing to them.
She is asking Clarence Thomas to recuse himself alleging a “conflict of interest” prevents him from ruling fairly.
According to the Washington Times, “Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) is pushing for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to recuse himself from the Colorado case involving former President Donald Trump and his eligibility for the 2024 ballot, arguing the justice’s wife’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election is a conflict of interest.”
“It’s very clear: Clarence Thomas and, rather, his wife, Ginni, participated in the events of Jan. 6, and now what is likely coming before the Supreme Court is a judgment as to whether an event that his wife participated in, that his wife has been investigated by in the Jan. 6 committee, qualifies as an insurrection,” Ocasio-Cortez alleges.
“Clarence Thomas’s decision on that, one way or another, and overall the court’s decision on that, would directly implicate his wife, and so, this is just one of the most classic, textbook conflicts of interest, and it would frankly be a scandal if he did not recuse himself.”
So far, Thomas has given no indications that he’ll be recusing himself from the case and now Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow Democrats are left scrambling.
“House Democrats have also called on Clarence Thomas to recuse himself from the 2020 federal election subversion case led by special counsel Jack Smith, in which the Supreme Court will determine whether Trump has presidential immunity,” the Washington Times reports.
Instead of being salty that the Supreme Court is controlled by conservative Justices who respect and uphold the U.S. Constitution, AOC and her fellow Democrats should probably just operate within the confines of the Constitution.
But since their progressive ideology requires big government to enforce their dictates, Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t know how she’ll move forward from here.
