Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says Trump must be impeached over Mueller report obstruction of justice findings

General April 19, 2019

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says Trump must be impeached over Mueller report obstruction of justice findingsAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez says the Mueller report has convinced her that Donald Trump must be impeached.The Congresswoman said she had resisted calling for the president to undergo investigation, and that she would rather work on other priorities, but that the behaviour detailed in the newly released report had forced her to back calls for his removal.Ms Ocasio-Cortez said she took "no pleasure" in the discussion, "but the report squarely puts this on our doorstep".The stance puts her at odds with more senior Democrat colleagues. House speaker Nancy Pelosi last month said impeaching Mr Trump would "divide the country" and that he is "not worth it".But Ms Ocasio-Cortez claimed the report clearly pointed to wrondoing on the president's part and that Congress must investigate."Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the president," she wrote on Twitter."It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution."As such, I’ll be signing onto Rashida Tlaib's impeachment resolution."She acknowledged the proceedings were likely to run into problems with objections from the Senate and elsewhere. But she said she was unable to justify backing the investigation all the same."While I understand the political reality of the Senate and election considerations, upon reading this DoJ report, which explicitly names Congress in determining obstruction, I cannot see a reason for us to abdicate from our constitutionally mandated responsibility to investigate."She wrote on Twitter that she would rather be working on other priotities but that she had no choice but to give it her backing."Many know I take no pleasure in discussions of impeachment. I didn’t campaign on it, and rarely discuss it unprompted."We all prefer working on our priorities: pushing Medicare for All, tackling student loans, and a Green New Deal."But the report squarely puts this on our doorstep."Fellow new Congresswoman Ilhan Omar also said she had been convinced to back the impeachment of Donald Trump."Impeachment is part of our constitutional responsibility," she wrote on Twitter. We have an obligation to investigate whether the President committed impeachable offenses", pointing to "obstruction of justice, violating the Emoluments Clause, collusion, and abuse of power" as possible avenues for investigation.

  • Michael Bloomberg robbed the DNC

    by on August 22, 2020 - 0 Comments

    Michael Bloomberg robbed the DNCWe now know how much the going rate is for a spot at the Democratic National Convention. Michael Bloomberg spoke for five minutes on Thursday night not long before the nominee itself, a role arguably more prominent than that of Bernie Sanders, the much-abused runner-up.The former New York mayor's remarks were exactly what you would expect. He began by pointing out that he is not a Democrat. He gloated about the vast amounts of money he has given to buy politicians in all parties. He quoted a children's book. He talked about the importance of experts, like the ones he deferred to when he doubled down on the brutal policing tactics that have been the subject of protests across the country. He even said "hell" twice.The best part is that he didn't even have to pay for it. Bloomberg reneged on his promise back in March to keep the thousands of paid staff members who carried him to his towering victory in the 2020 American Samoa Democratic primary onboard until the general election. He has given a whopping $18 million to the party itself and just over $4 million to other grassroots organizations this year. He also offered them some useless free office space during the lockdown.At least President Trump was watching. > After the worst debate performance in the history of politics, Michael Bloomberg, commonly known as Mini Mike, is trying to make a comeback by begging the Democrats for relevance. They treated him like a dog - and always will. Before politics, he said GREAT things about me!> > -- Donald J.
