Ocasio-Cortez Pushes For Vote On Impeachment: 'We Need To Do Our Job'
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed in on President Trump's impeachment. Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pushing for a vote on the impeachment of President Trump. She wrote in a series of Tuesday tweets: "It is just as politicized a maneuver to not impeach in the face of overwhelming evidence as it is to impeach w/o cause. Congress swore an oath to uphold the Constitution. That includes impeachment. We have a duty to preserve our institutions + uphold the rule of law."  "Just as what happens in the House doesn't control Senate, what happens in the Senate shouldn't control the House," Ocasio-Cortez continued. "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." "Remember, Clinton was also impeached - that failed in Sen too, Ocasio-Cortez also noted. "Our institutions didn't suffer then, but they have been damaged greatly today w unwillingness to impeach. Whether it's Dem fear or GOP recklessness, doesn't matter. Failure to impeach now is neglect of due process."  The Congresswoman's call to action comes not long after former White House counsel Don McGahn ignored a subpoena to appear before the House Judiciary Committee "where lawmakers had planned to press him on President Donald Trump's efforts to thwart the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election," reports USA Today. While that move angered many Democrats, the party remains split on whether impeachment proceedings are appropriate at this time.
