Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) attacked the legitimacy of the U.S. Supreme Court this week, claiming in an interview that the court has “gone rogue” because she doesn’t agree with their rulings.

The former Speaker of the House made the remarks during an interview Monday night with CNN’s Anderson Cooper when asked if she had confidence in the court.

“No, I think they have gone rogue. It’s most unfortunate,” she claimed. “But it’s unfortunate further to see what the other justices … what happened to the chief justice? Did he go weak or did he go rogue? I don’t know. And that’s the same thing with these members of Congress, if I can take it back to that, because, as tragic as that night was — and they were coming after me to put a bullet in my head. They were going to hang the — have a gallows for the vice president of the United States.”

“So, no, I don’t have confidence in the Supreme Court,” she later added. “I think that some of the decisions they have — see, I respect their point of view. If they have a point of view about 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.”

She claimed that the justices voted “their opinion on policy” rather than follow “the oath of office to uphold the Constitution of the United States.”

“I want us to get back to a place where the three branches of government, as our Founders initiated, are respected across the board,” she claimed. “But I don’t have a lot of confidence in this court, unfortunately. I say that with a heavy heart.”
