- Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez held a joint press conference on Sunday to discuss options for blocking Republicans from filling the Supreme Court vacancy left by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
- Ocasio-Cortez, in response to a reporter’s question, said Congress should not rule out impeachment of either US Attorney General Bill Barr or President Donald Trump, which would delay any Senate confirmation vote.
- “It’s extraordinarily important that we understand the stakes of this vacancy,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Our reproductive rights are on the line. Our labor rights are on the line. Our rights to healthcare are on the line.”
- Schumer did not rule out expanding the Supreme Court if Democrats win a Senate majority this fall. “Everything is on the table,” he said.
