Ocasio-Cortez Pushes to Impeach Trump but Can’t Give Specifics: ‘Just Meeting the Republican Standard’
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was asked if it was too early to start the process to impeach President Trump to which she answered, “not to me.”
Ocasio-Cortez named the Russia probe and Michael Cohen’s guilty plea for lying to congress about potential real estate business in Moscow that fell through for reasons to impeach the president.
She even used Bill Clinton’s impeachment as an example and stated that Donald Trump shouldn’t be held to a different standard.
“I’ve been supportive of impeachment for some time now so I think it just adds to the case,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I mean, it’s just, this is ridiculous. This is outrageous. In 1998, the entire Republican Party decides to impeach Bill Clinton over what standard? And the fact that they have to raise that standard to go above and beyond.”
What is she even saying?? Does anyone speak millennial snowflake? I need a translator…
Watch below to see if it makes any more sense to you:
Ocasio-Cortez claims that it was the Republicans who pushed the limits of what qualifies for impeachment.
“They’re the ones that established that standard for impeachment so we are just really meeting the Republican standard.”
When she was asked to expand on what specific standard had been exceeded that would call for the start of the impeachment process, she could not give a specific answer.
“Well, I just think, overall, when you look at the broad stroke they took, how far they would take it, and how granularly they would dig into that process.”
