Democrats aren’t handling the news of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death well.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez echoed the earlier comments of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when she called for the impeachment of Attorney General Bill Barr, as well as President Trump, in a last-ditch effort to stop the nomination of Ginsburg’s replacement.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told reporters that impeaching President Trump and Attorney General William Barr are potential options for Democrats to stop the nomination of a new Supreme Court justice.
“I believe that certainly there has been an enormous amount of lawbreaking in the Trump administration. I believe that Attorney General Barr is unfit for office and that he has pursued potentially lawbreaking behavior,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“That being said, these are procedures and decisions that are largely up to House Democratic leadership. But I believe that also we must consider, again, all of the tools available to our disposal and that all of these options should be entertained and on the table.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s threat was amplified on Twitter by a variety of left-wing accounts.
Bill Barr should be impeached.
That's the tweet.

There is no reason to not impeach Bill Barr. The House could hold hearings and rapidly draft charges. A huge swath of Republicans who served in the FBI, DOJ, etc., have already denounced Barr before his faster rise to fascism in the last few weeks.

Update: Barr just did another thing to enrage liberals:
Bill Barr, Lion King. https://t.co/uFPpeFAiVq

Apparently, he doesn’t care what they think!
