Democratic Rep. Jamaal Bowman of New York has accused the Supreme Court of breaching the Constitution and called for impeaching the supposed law breakers and adding seats to the nine-member high court.
“The Supreme Court is brazenly violating the Constitution, so it’s time to impeach those who have broken the law and expand the court,” Bowman declared in a tweet.
Bowman is also accusing members of the Supreme Court of making decision on the basis of their own religious beliefs.
“Instead of doing their job and upholding the Constitution and the rights of the people, SCOTUS decides cases based on their faith and their far-right extremism,” Bowman declared in a tweet.
“We all swore an oath of office when we became congresspeople, senators, justices, and presidents. It’s time we uphold our oaths of office by stopping the Supreme Court from participating in a judicial coup and attempting to expand their power,” he declared in another post. “SCOTUS’ decisions chose to disregard the entire Constitution and the American people,” another tweet declares.
Democrats have been up in arms about several recent Supreme Court rulings, including a decision that enables states to outlaw abortions. While pro-life advocates have celebrated the decision, many Democrats, including Bowman, have said that the ruling marked a “dark day for America.”
“Nothing about overturning Roe v Wade is pro-life when thousands will die due to a lack of medical care,” Bowman has tweeted.
Last month, Elon Musk announced that he had voted for Republican Mayra Flores in a Texas special election, but Bowman responded to Musk by accusing him of backing white supremacy. Flores, who won the election and has since been sworn in as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, was born in Mexico.
“I voted for Mayra Flores – first time I ever voted Republican. Massive red wave in 2022,” Musk tweeted.
“Elon Musk is not a leader. He’s just another Republican billionaire who supports white supremacy and authoritarianism because he doesn’t want his workers to unionize or to pay his fair share in taxes. The GOP just tried to end democracy and now he’s supporting them,” Bowman tweeted.
