Democrats are doing everything they can to take over this country and destroy it. But no one expected them to take things this far.
And Democrats unveiled their latest court packing scheme that has Republicans worried sick.
Senate Democrats on the Judiciary Committee are continuing their unprecedented power grab by subpoenaing conservative leader Leonard Leo, like they are trying to do with justices Thomas and Alito, despite the fact that they have no legal authority to do so.
This move is part of a broader effort by Democrats to delegitimize the Supreme Court and undermine its independence.
The Radical Left has been unable to advance their radical agenda through the legislative process, so they are now resorting to extrajudicial means.
They are also pushing “ethics” bills called the Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal, and Transparency (“SCERT”) Act that would give them the power to remove conservative justices from key cases.
Leo is the co-chairman of the Federalist Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the principles of originalism and limited government.
He has been a vocal critic of Democrat efforts to pack the Supreme Court and undermine the separation of powers.
And now, by subpoenaing Leo, Democrats are hoping to intimidate him and other conservatives into silence.
They want to create a climate of fear and uncertainty so that people will be afraid to speak out against their agenda.
Democrats also want to cause as much chaos in the Supreme Court as possible so that they can push their Radical agendas.
But Democrats will not succeed. The American people are increasingly aware of their attempts to subvert the Constitution, and they will not stand for it.
This absurd subpoena is a violation of the First Amendment which protects the right of individuals to express their political views without fear of government reprisal.
The First Amendment protects Leo’s work for the Federalist Society, and Democrats cannot subpoena him for it.
Also, the Democrats’ subpoena is a violation of the separation of powers.
The Constitution establishes three separate branches of government: the legislative branch, the executive branch, and the judicial branch. Each branch is independent of the others, and no one branch is allowed to interfere with the other branches.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is part of the legislative branch. It does not have the power to subpoena private citizens like Leo. This power belongs to the executive branch, not the legislative branch.
Democrats have not provided any legitimate reason for subpoenaing Leo. Their subpoena is simply an attempt to intimidate and harass him.
Sadly, the Radical Left does not care about the Constitution, and Democrats in this country will stop at nothing to push their harmful and Radical policies.
In the past, the Supreme Court has ruled that Congress has a broad power to investigate. However, the Court has also ruled that this power is not unlimited.
Congress cannot use its investigative power to harass or intimidate private citizens which is a key point that Leo’s attorney has brought up many times.
The Radicals in this country need to be stopped from destroying everything in America.
