AOC: Democrat Party’s Refusal to Impeach Trump is Worse Than His Behavior

‘Squad’ member Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D), who’s not shy when it comes to using peer pressure to get the left to fall in line with her oftentimes extreme ideas, has fired off another push onto her own party. In a tweet late last night, the freshman congresswoman put out a theory that it’s not what she believes to be ‘Trump’s lawbreaking behavior’ that is the biggest problem, but rather Democrats who won’t impeach him. She tweeted:

“At this point, the bigger national scandal isn’t the president’s lawbreaking behavior – it is the Democratic Party’s refusal to impeach him for it.”


This comes not long after the House Judiciary Committee held recent hearings that were efforts to push forward impeachment attempts. At one point Georgia Rep. Doug Collins (R) seemed to mock Chairman Jerry Nadler (D) for wasting time with the efforts and saying “you don’t have the votes”, and “if you’re just howling at the wind you’re not doing anything” in a now-viral video. He also went on to imply that if they had enough evidence and votes to impeach President Trump they’d have a bill, saying, “where’s the bill, where’s waldo?” You can see that clip from Media Right on Facebook below.


AOC subsequently fired off two retweets after her initial tweet lambasting her fellow Democrats for inaction. The first one was a Beto O’Rourke tweet where the would-be AR-15 grabber said, “What is Congress waiting for? This is crazy. Unless we take action now, we will see the end of American democracy.” This was commentary he added to another tweet by CNBC’s John Harwood where he asks about an alleged ‘whistleblower scandal‘s’ potential effect on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D) willingness to support impeachment, as she has been hesitant thus far.


The next retweet by AOC during her impeachment peer pressure rampage was one by the U.S. Rep Brendan Boyle (D) from Pennsylvania. His tweet, from September 20th, read as follows:

“For the sake of our Constitution, and for the sake of our country:

Donald Trump must be impeached, convicted in the Senate, removed from office, and face criminal trial.”


The question that remains, despite AOC’s apparent influence in the Democrat party and power struggle with Nancy Pelosi as the Trump dubbed leader of ‘The Squad’ AKA ‘AOC+3‘, can anything actually be done to impeach President Trump? Even if the party wanted to fall in line with the 29-year-old newbie to Washington D.C., could they even do it? Or is Ms. Cortez just barking up the wrong tree with her powerful pedestal?
