“We have to do our job,” said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., today as she lit into Trump and the GOP like a broken record.
AOC, Pelosi is the one standing in front of your impeachment dreams because she knows it will backfire and turn into a nightmare, not the GOP.
“Once the House impeaches, the House has impeached the president and then that hearing goes to the Senate,” AOC said.
“If they want to fail it, then I want to see every Republican go on the record and knowingly vote against impeachment of this president, knowing his corruption, having it on the record so that they can have that stain on their careers for the rest of their lives because this is outrageous to protect the amount of lawlessness and corruption coming out of this presidency.”
“This president will not last,” added Ocasio-Cortez, “whether he’s voted out next year or whether he serves another term, this president will not last, but those members in the Senate need to carry that legacy and they need to go to bat for what they’re doing.”
“The corruption of this president knows no bounds, and in order to protect our democracy we have to impeach him.”
From Fox News:
Although Ocasio-Cortez has already called for impeachment, much of her caucus seemed reluctant. That included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who has warned about a failed impeachment bid potentially dooming efforts to prosecute Trump after he leaves office.
Pelosi reportedly told House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., that she wanted to see Trump in prison but refused his interest in impeaching Trump.
Nadler’s committee has led the charge on congressional investigations after the release of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Despite Nadler’s push for impeachment, Pelosi has insisted that Democrats “all work together.”
