AOC calls on Chuck Schumer to take a Position on whether or not Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch Lied under Oath Concerning their View on Roe

AOC has attempted recovery from her recent controversies as she is now urging Chuck Schumer to take a position on whether Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch lied to senators concerning their views on Roe v. Wade. She, along with Ted Lieu (CA) sent a letter to Chuck Schumer last week demanding he addresses the matter.
"We request that the Senate make its position clear on whether Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch lied under oath during their confirmation hearings. We must call out their actions for what they were before the moment passes so that we can prevent such a mendacious denigration of our fundamental rights and the rule of law from ever happening again."
The letter read.
During the confirmation hearings of both justices, they called Roe a precedent that had been reaffirmed. However, neither of them said whether or not they’d overturn the ruling if given the opportunity. Senator Susan Collins has claimed the two misled her in their confirmation votes.
"This decision is inconsistent with what Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh said in their testimony and their meetings with me, where they both were insistent on the importance of supporting long-standing precedents that the country has relied upon."
Susan Collins said.
An individual who is verbally against abortion, Joe Manchin, even said, "I trusted Justice Gorsuch and Justice Kavanaugh when they testified under oath that they also believed Roe v. Wade was settled legal precedent and I am alarmed they chose to reject the stability the ruling has provided for two generations of Americans.”
AOC has stated her concerns surrounding the possibility of both Justices lying under oath as she claimed that lying under oath during confirmation hearings was an impeachable offense and was "something that should be very seriously considered.”
"To allow that to stand is to allow it to happen. What makes it particularly dangerous is that it sends a blaring signal to all future nominees that they can now lie to duly elected members of the United States Senate in order to secure Supreme Court confirmations and seats on the Supreme Court."
