“I’m over it” AOC Triggered Over Impeachment deal
NEW YORK— Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told city hall constituents that she was tired of the ongoing efforts of her party to impeach President Trump, saying it’s just the first step in a broader societal overhaul.
“I think the whole thing is boring,” Ocasio-Cortez, 29, said Thursday at the Queens Library event. “He should have been impeached a long time ago. I’m over it. And so that’s how I feel about it because we’ve got work to do.”
Ocasio-Cortez is a breakout star of the House Democratic freshman class, which helped give the party its first majority in eight years. She got to Congress by beating a member of the House Democratic leadership in her 2018 primary challenge.
She’s been a forceful advocate of impeaching Trump, long before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave her blessing to an impeachment inquiry effort over the president’s interactions with Ukraine’s leaders, which critics say aimed to use government resources to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.
“Impeachment of this president is the short-term action we need to preserve our democracy,” Ocasio-Cortez said at the town hall. “But if we are really going to thrive as a country, we need to make long-term investments and keep our eyes on the prize of social and economic and racial justice in the United States of America. And that’s what this is all about.”
Ocasio-Cortez did defend House Select Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff of California, who is spearheading the impeachment investigation. Schiff recently was found to have known about key details of the whistleblower and the complaint before it was filed and went public, despite telling reporters otherwise two weeks ago.
