Hours after the Department of Justice on Thursday released a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez committed to adding her name to an impeachment resolution aimed at President Trump.
The New York Democrat revealed her intentions on Twitter, vowing to sign onto the resolution put forward by fellow freshman lawmaker Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., last month.
The proposal calls on the House Judiciary Committee to probe whether or not the president committed any offenses that rise to the level of impeachment.
In announcing her decision, Ocasio-Cortez addressed the report, writing it “is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President.”
“While I understand the political reality of the Senate + 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 in a follow-up tweet.
The report showed that investigators did not find evidence of collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. Mueller, however, did not reach a conclusion on whether the president’s conduct amounted to obstruction, stating: “[W]hile this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”
Ocasio-Cortez continued on Twitter, explaining that she doesn’t often speak about the matter of impeachment and would rather focus her attention on other matters. But the report’s release brought the subject to the forefront, she argued.
“Many know I take no pleasure in discussions of impeachment. I didn’t campaign on it, & rarely discuss it unprompted,” she tweeted. “We all prefer working on our priorities: pushing Medicare for All, tackling student loans, & a Green New Deal.”
“But the report squarely puts this on our doorstep,” she wrote.
However, the Democratic House Leadership feels differently about the subject.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Thursday that nothing he saw in special counsel Robert Mueller s report would make seeking to impeach President Trump a “worthwhile” effort “at this point.”
Hoyer made the remarks to CNN’s Dana Bash following the Justice Department’s release of Mueller’s partially redacted findings in his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
“Based on what we have seen to date, going forward on impeachment is not worthwhile at this point,” Hoyer told CNN. “Very frankly, there is an election in 18 months and the American people will make a judgment.”
…House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said recently that impeaching the president is “not worth” the political divisiveness it would bring to the country.
“Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country,” Pelosi said in March.
The obsessive duo of Nadler and Schiff notwithstanding, could we be witnessing a Civil War growing between the Old Guard of the Democratic Party and the young Marxist Democratic Socialist Branch, led by AOC, Tlaib, and Omar over the future direction of the Democrat Majority House of Representatives?
I have written before that I firmly believe that America is now fighting a new war against fascism.
It’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead, it is being fought with superfluous Congressional Hearings attacking President Trump, anonymous sources, unproven baseless accusations, and the Vanguard of the Modern Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media.
It’s not our Brightest and Best who are dying on this field of battle, but rather, it is our Constitutional Freedoms and our form of government, including our System of Checks and Balances, which are dying an ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of socialism and political correctness.
This obsessive fascism which has become the engine which drives the Far Left Democratic Party is now on the verge of splitting that party wide open.
As the talking heads on the MSM lost their minds over the results of the Mueller Report yesterday while covering the grieving House Democrats, you can bet that the House Democrats were on the phone with one another, trying to figure out what to do now that they have been shown to be a bunch of lying fools who have been attempting to con the American Public into believing something that never happened for the last 2 and 1/2 years.
I am certain that the Democrat Leadership were asking each other, “How do we regain our credibility with the voters?”
However, the group of SJWs who believe differently from the Leadership, may or may not be few in number.
Regardless of what Speaker Pelosi has said, AOC’s fellow travelers may actually be bigger in number than her recent estimate of a group of 5.
Make no mistake, the Marxist “Social Justice Warrior” wing of the Democratic Party is not willing to let go their pipe dream of impeaching and removing from office President Trump, even if there is no Constitutional cause to do so.
If they do attempt to impeach President Trump, they will fail.
And, their Electoral Exile from the Oval Office will be just beginning.
If the Democratic Leadership allows the Marxist Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) like Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, and Omar to take control of the House of Representatives and their political party while embracing Radical Islam, anti-Semitism, and Marxism, while insisting on impeaching President Donald J. Trump, Pelosi and the rest of the “useful idiots” known as the House Democratic Leadership are dooming their political party to go the way of the Whigs.
