Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just threatened Donald Trump Jr. and it backfired in the worst way

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is quickly becoming the laughing stock of Congress.

She continues to make public gaffes and errors that reveal how naïve she is.

And this time she really stepped in it.

Donald Trump Jr. posted a meme making fun of her and socialism.

Then, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted back threatening to subpoena him.

What she did not realize is that it is an ethics violation for a member of Congress to threaten litigation against anyone over partisan politics.

The Daily Caller reports:

Donald Trump Jr. shared a meme that featured Ocasio-Cortez on his Instagram that claimed the policies of socialism will cause Americans to eat their dogs. The meme shows two images: one of Ocasio-Cortez with the text, “Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?” and another image beneath Ocasio-Cortez of President Donald Trump with an overlay of text saying, “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”

In response to a Washington Post write up of the meme, Ocasio-Cortez threatened to use the “subpoena power” of Congress against Trump Jr.

Commenters pointed out that the act of threatening to use the power of Congress against other Americans for partisan gain is prohibited by ethics rules.

Sean Davis of the Federalist pointed to House Ethics Manual stipulations that members of Congress are “prohibited from threatening” due to partisan politics and cited the statute.

It is unlikely that Donald Trump Jr. will seek ethics charges (even though he was the one threatened).

But Ocasio-Cortez is playing fast and loose.

She is ignorant of the laws, and it could land her in seriously hot water.

But radical Democrats are still eating it up.

    Sometime when you want a laugh–google congress and how many members have criminal records. You will be amazed. Google will never say who dunnit but I know of a defrocked judge who is in the House of Rep..The slush fund paid off a woman he got sexual with. Sure wish Trump would force the publication of that slush fund and make the congressmen pay the millions back to the taxpayers. They are such low lives in the House that it would be comic if it were not such a tragedy.

    Did her handler aka boyfriend ever return the million bucks in campaign money that she turned over to him? They are in trouble with the federal election committee over those funds.. Once boyfriend invests the money into his hedge fund–they can spend it as they please and what they have done is a felony I believe because the intent was to defraud. Campaign money can only be spent on campaigns as ilhad Omar is finding out..
