After the hearings with Michael Cohen, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said on Monday that she thinks there has been enough misconduct happening out of the White House for President Trump to be impeached. She said…
“I understand the leadership, perhaps, would like to build a stronger case and subpoena more records or figure out what’s happening, perhaps in the Mueller investigation,” she said at a press conference in Queens, New York, after opening her first congressional district office. “And so I defer to the chair, I defer to the party leadership… I certainly believe that there’s been enough misconduct happening out of this office that it would be unbecoming of any president.”
However, no evidence of wrongdoing was unearthed during the hearing, plus the fact that Cohen exonerated President Trump of involvement with or collusion with Russia in 2016, leaves one wondering what misconduct she is talking about. Furthermore, that doesn’t include the fact that Cohen was found guilty of lying to Congress on multiple counts, and is set to serve three years in prison for it, along with the fact that Ocasio-Cortez had pledged to impeach the President during her campaign for Congress, regardless of the outcome of Mueller’s probe! For example, in November on his Real America with Jorge Ramos show on Facebook Watch this week, the Univision anchor asked Ocasio-Cortez if she wanted to impeach Trump once she got to Congress, and she responded by stating…
“I mean, yeah. To me, it’s a no-brainer. Well, I believe that he has violated the law. Violated potentially many laws, whether it’s the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution because he keeps his businesses open that foreign actors kind of participate in financial transactions with. Whether it’s what we are seeing with potentially illegal buyouts of campaign, you know, FEC violations of women that he is trying to silence.”
She went on prod Democrats to stop going after Trump/Russia Collusion, and instead focus on Trump’s tax returns, businesses, and financial statements, as she said…
“It’s been very clear that I’ve been supportive of… how I would vote in terms of impeachment. You hear the president say, ‘no collusion,’ ‘no collusion,’ ‘no collusion,’ So, while he’s talking collusion, collusion, collusion, I think, in Oversight, we should be talking about taxes, taxes, taxes, and his bank account, his bank account, his bank account, his financial statements, statements, statements. Because that’s where I think actually some of the most troubling practices are, with direct relevance to the American people under the scope of Oversight.”
AOC was joined with countless other Democrats like Rep. Al Green (D-TX) who said that President Trump…
“does not have to commit a crime to be impeached”, but for simply for “harming society. In fact, the president is not likely to be indicted, which means he’s not likely to be found guilty of a crime while he’s sitting, which means that if this comes before the House, it won’t come before the House as a president who has been found guilty, but rather as a president who is alleged to have committed certain offenses that are onerous to the Constitution and that harm society,” Green said during an August Democracy Now interview. “And what this president is doing is harming society.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Democrat leadership have reportedly been worrying that beginning impeachment proceedings against Trump could likely backfire on their Party in 2020, but it now seems that the Party leadership has lost control of its membership!
Now, as Democrats fight to bring down the President, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Chief of Staff are under fire for an alleged $1 Million dollar slush fund that was used to divert campaign cash to her chief of staff’s own companies! In fact, The Washington Examiner reported that according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Committee Monday (FEC), two PACs founded by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide, Saikat Chakrabarti funneled over $ 1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies. Even more damning, is the fact that it appears that Chakrabarti set up the two companies called ‘Brand New Congress’ and ‘Justice Democrats’ in 2016 and 2017 respectively, in order to funnel the money into, and hide the ‘dark money’!
Furthermore, the report shows that the ultimate goal of the two entities was to get Socialist and Marxist candidates elected to Congress, with one of those candidates being Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez!
Even more problematic for both Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Chief of Staff Chakrabarti, is they could very well serve jail time for the crimes! According to the Daily Caller News Foundation…
“Ocasio-Cortez never disclosed to the FEC that she and Chakrabarti, who served as her campaign chair, controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign, and former FEC commissioners say the arrangement could lead to multiple campaign finance violations. The group backed 12 Democrats during the 2018 midterms, but Ocasio-Cortez was the only one of those to win her general election.”
“If the facts as alleged are true, and a candidate had control over a PAC that was working to get that candidate elected, then that candidate is potentially in very big trouble and may have engaged in multiple violations of federal campaign finance law, including receiving excessive contributions,” former Republican FEC commissioner Hans von Spakovsky told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
And fellow former FEC commissioner Brad Smith told TheDCNF that if “a complaint were filed, I would think it would trigger a serious investigation.” He also noted that such a probe could potentially result in jail time for Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff, Chakrabarti.
Now as the allegations begin to swell into a potential legal firestorm, Ocasio-Cortez and her Chief of Staff have gone silent. A silence that is certainly an oddity for one of the loudest, most vocal, most combative, and most out-of-control Congressional members in Washington D.C.! Regardless, as the left continues to be swallowed up by radicals that are hell-bent on destroying America, it is very likely that we will continue to see the projection of their own racism, their own hate, and their own criminality, onto those whom they are determined to destroy! Especially, upon those who love the United States, and are determined to fight for Americans, as they seek to ‘Make America Great Again’!
