The Democrats are furiously scurrying around Washington DC this week, trying to discover some way in which they can somehow block Donald Trump from performing his constitutionally-mandated duty to appoint the next Supreme Court justice.
The fight comes after the sudden death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who herself was an icon in American justice.
The Democrats believe that no pick should be made until after the November election, while the Republicans seem hellbent on knocking the process out in just a matter of weeks.
On the left, there are even rumors of bringing another impeachment against the President, and others, in order to stop these political wheels from turning.
Leftist firebrand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, when asked if she would support this idea, doubled down.
When a reporter asked if buying time could include impeachment of President Trump or Attorney General Barr, Ocasio-Cortez said, “Well, I think I am. I believe that certainly, there has been an enormous amount of law-breaking in the Trump administration. I believe that Attorney General Barr are is unfit for office am, and I am that he has pursued potential we are breaking he here. That being said, this is these are procedures that are in decisions are largely up to house Democratic leadership. But I believe that I also we must consider all the tools available to our disposal and that all of these options should be entertained and on the table.”
President Trump has indicated that he will be announcing his nomination for the Supreme Court vacancy on Friday or Saturday, and that his list of potential jurists is down to five at this time.
