Victor Reacts: And They Say Trump Wants to be a Dictator? Dems Target SCOTUS (VIDEO) | The Gateway Pundit

Date:


Democrat leader Hakeem Jeffries is now targeting conservative Supreme Court justices, threatening to “get them under control.” And they say that Trump wants to be a dictator?

The Gateway Pundit reported,

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries has launched a scathing attack against the originalist judges on the Supreme Court, describing them as “MAGA extremists” who need to be reigned in by Congress.

In an appearance on MSNBC’s Deadline, Jeffries warned that the Court must be controlled with a “legislative effort to implement an ethical code of conduct.”

He explained:

This is part of the challenge that we confront with the runaway Supreme Court that appears to want to conduct itself as if the Judiciary is above the law. For years, members of Congress in both the House and the Senate have indicated that it’s time for the Supreme Court to have an ethical code of conduct that is enforceable.”

Last year, Chief Justice Roberts did implement a code of conduct, but it appears to be voluntary and is being ignored. And so, as a result of that, the first opportunity that we have in the Congress, I believe we need to have a real conversation about a legislative effort to implement an ethical code of conduct on the Supreme Court that is enforceable. They are the only branch of government currently that can operate with impunity.

Congress has an ethical code of conduct enforceable under law. The executive branch has an ethical code of conduct enforceable under law. We’ve got to get the MAGA extremists on the Supreme Court under control.

Jeffries must have missed an episode of School House Rock as a kid, or slept through his civics class. “Controlling” members of the Supreme Court is not the job of a congressman. Democrats have made it clear that they have Supreme Court in their sights.

Previously democrats have called for court packing, abolishing the court, and now they want to control the actions of the justices.
