AOC: There’s a ‘Judicial Coup’ Underway

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)

( – Yesterday was the final day of the United States Supreme Court’s current term. They are now in recess until the first Monday in October.

As the day concluded with a flurry of opinions issued by the court, United States Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat, seemingly panicked and declared on Twitter that there is a “judicial coup” underway in the U.S.

Specifically, the member of the infamous “Squad” tweeted:

“We are witnessing a judicial coup in process.

“If the President and Congress do not restrain the Court now, the Court is signaling they will come for the Presidential election next.

“All our leaders – regardless of party – must recognize this Constitutional crisis for what it is.”

Ocasio-Cortez was reacting to the Supreme Court’s announcement that it will take up Moore v Harper in its next term.

The Brennan Center, which Ocasio-Cortez cited, describes Moore v. Harper as “an appeal advocating for extreme interpretation of the Constitution that could make it easier for state legislatures to suppress the vote, draw unfair election districts, enable partisan interference in ballot counting.”

Ocasio-Cortez and dozens of other prominent liberals tweeting yesterday believe the court will use Moore v. Harper to empower red state legislatures to throw out federal election results they don’t like and substitute alternative results.

This, Ocasio-Cortez believes, is tantamount to a “judicial coup” that could overturn correctly determined election results.
