Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., says she intends to file articles of impeachment against Supreme Court justices.

The Supreme Court ruled Monday in Trump v. United States that presidents have immunity from prosecution pertaining to “official acts” taken in office.


Afterward, Ocasio-Cortez said in a post on X that she intends to file articles of impeachment against the justices and that the high court has been ”consumed by a corruption crisis beyond its control.”

“Today’s ruling represents an assault on American democracy,” the New York Democrat wrote. “It is up to Congress to defend our nation from this authoritarian capture.”

Trump was indicted August 2023 on four felony counts related to an alleged effort to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

The Supreme Court decided in the 6-3 ruling issued Monday that Trump is entitled to “at least presumptive immunity from prosecution for all his official acts” and maintained that “there is no immunity for unofficial acts.”

The majority opinion was written by Chief Justice John Roberts, who was joined by Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh. Justice Amy Coney Barrett joined in part.

The dissenting opinion was written by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who was joined by Justices Elena Kagan and Ketanji Brown Jackson.
