Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Impeach Trump now

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested Democrats, who take power in the House next month, should not wait to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump because “we have far surpassed” the “standard” that the Republican Party used to impeach former President Bill Clinton.

Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., during comments to reporters Friday on Capitol Hill, was asked if seeking impeachment is premature. “Not to me,” she replied. Democratic leaders during the 2018 campaign sought to play down the prospect that they would try to remove the president from office.

Ocasio-Cortez also said a plea deal reached by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen and special counsel Robert Mueller buttresses the case the Trump should be impeached. Cohen admitted to making false statements about the timing of discussions surrounding the "Moscow Project," an effort by Trump to construct a tower in Russia's capital.

“I’ve been supportive of impeachment for some time now so I think it just adds to the case,” she 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.”

She's got spunk.  Stupid as a box of rocks but she's got spunk.
"You don’t hand matches to an arsonist, and you don’t give power to an angry left-wing mob. Democrats have become too EXTREME and TOO DANGEROUS to govern. Republicans believe in the rule of law - not the rule of the mob. VOTE REPUBLICAN!"

What an idiot.

Fine. Let’s see if she can articulate cogent grounds for impeachment. Then we’ll talk. Odds are she’s incapable of putting together a complete sentence much less come up with a specific instance of Trump’s high crime or misdemeanor.

What she said makes no sense. She is abjectly stupid.
Principles matter. Words matter.
