Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made one threat that made Nancy Pelosi’s blood run cold
Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team are fighting a losing battle.
Their careers could be on the line.
And now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made one threat that made Nancy Pelosi’s blood run cold.
Democrats are moving steadily in the direction of launching a politically-motivated impeachment investigation.
Pelosi is doing everything she can to hold off this foolhardy endeavor.
But things changed after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came out and demanded Democrats move forward with impeachment.
CNN’s Manu Raju caught up with AOC shortly after McCgahn defied a subpoena — at Trump’s behest — by failing to appear before the House Judiciary Committee. Raju asked Ocasio-Cortez about impeachment, and while the congresswoman spoke deferentially about Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, she said it was time for Democrats to get cracking.
“You know, I trust the Speaker is taking a measured approach to ensure that we’re moving everyone forward and, you know, being a Speaker is hard, holding this party together is a difficult task,” AOC said, and added “but I personally think so. I think we have to move forward.”
Democrats like Pelosi don’t want to pursue impeachment because it is a dead-end in the Senate.
No Republican will go along with this partisan attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election.
But Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t care.
Just as what happens in the House doesn’t control Senate, what happens in the Senate shouldn’t control the House.
DoJ outlined ev of 10 criminal instances. Pres is now obstructing legally binding subpoenas.
We need to do our job & vote on impeachment. What Sen does is on them. https://t.co/iXJWntDRJ5

The only question remaining about impeachment is not if the Democrats will pull the trigger, but when.
