VIDEO: Pelosi Attacks Supreme Court

Nancy Pelosi

(Patriot.Buzz) – Doubling down on the leftist narrative against the Supreme Court given its conservative majority, US Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) revealed she is strongly skeptical about the highest court’s integrity.

Watch the video below.

Speaking on the two-year anniversary of the court’s landmark decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Pelosi criticized the court’s recent actions during her appearance on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”

When talking about the court’s impact on abortion rights, she believes the topic will be a crucial issue in the next elections as it was in the 2022 midterms.

During the interview, Anderson Cooper questioned Pelosi’s confidence in the Supreme Court, citing ongoing controversies involving Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, and their recent cases.

In response, Pelosi was blunt: “No, I think they’ve gone rogue. It’s most unfortunate, but it’s unfortunate to see what has happened with the other justices. What happened to the chief justice? Did he go weak or did he go rogue? I don’t know.”

She lamented the justices’ approach to their roles, stating, “I respect their point of view if they have a point of view on a woman’s right to choose, okay. But that’s not what they’re there to do to advocate for a point of view, run for Congress.”

“They’re there to uphold the Constitution of the United States. And many of them said in their hearings for confirmation, they said that they supported the precedence of the court supporting the privacy in the Constitution,” Pelosi added.

She went on to say, “Then what do they do? They vote their opinion on policy rather than the oath of office to uphold the Constitution of the United States. So I want us to get back to a place where the three branches of government, as our Founders initiated, are respected across the board.”

Pelosi concluded her thoughts by expressing, “I don’t have a lot of confidence in this court unfortunately. I say that with a heavy heart.”

This interview comes at a time when public trust in the Supreme Court is near historical lows, with only 41% approval as of last September, slightly above its lowest point in 2021 when the court allowed a Texas abortion law to take effect.
