Ocasio-Cortez: Democrats' 'Refusal To Impeach' Is 'Bigger National Scandal' Than Trump's 'Lawbreaking Behavior'

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed Democrats in a tweet on Saturday.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday slammed Democrats on the topic of President Trump's impeachment.

"At this point, the bigger national scandal isn't the president's lawbreaking behavior - it is the Democratic Party's refusal to impeach him for it," she wrote in a tweet.  This is not the first time Ocasio-Cortez has pushed for an impeachment vote.  She wrote in a series of tweets in May: "It is just as politicized a maneuver to not impeach in the face of overwhelming evidence as it is to impeach w/o cause.

Congress swore an oath to uphold the Constitution.

That includes impeachment.

We have a duty to preserve our institutions + uphold the rule of law."  "Just as what happens in the House doesn't control Senate, what happens in the Senate shouldn't control the House," Ocasio-Cortez continued.

"DoJ outlined ev of 10 criminal instances.

Pres is now obstructing legally binding subpoenas.

We need to do our job & vote on impeachment.

What Sen does is on them." "Remember, Clinton was also impeached - that failed in Sen too," Ocasio-Cortez also noted.

"Our institutions didn't suffer then, but they have been damaged greatly today w unwillingness to impeach.

Whether it's Dem fear or GOP recklessness, doesn't matter.

Failure to impeach now is neglect of due process."  Democrats remain split on whether impeachment proceedings are appropriate at this time.  When asked about the matter, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the Washington Post in March: "I'm not for impeachment...I've been thinking about this: 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.

And he's just not worth it."
