Ocasio-Cortez Calls Fellow Dems A ‘Bigger National Scandal’ Than Trump, They Flip Out In Response

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims there is one problem bigger than President Trump and his “lawbreaking behavior.”

If AOC—someone who has repeatedly decried President Trump and nearly everything he has ever done while serving in office—is saying something is worse than Trump, then it must be really bad.

So what could be worse than Trump in her book? Her very own Democrat Party and its congressional members.

“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,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a tweet on  Saturday evening, just before midnight.

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went after Democrats for not impeaching Trump and managed to tick off lots and lots of blue checks,” Twitchy reports of the tweet.


Is this a passive-aggressive dig at Nancy Pelosi or is she really and truly going after her own party?

Maybe a little bit of both.

Some liberals online hated the comment and said the blame should rest solely on Trump and Senate Republicans.

Ocasio-Cortez responded to the tweet, again echoing that Democrats are doing “nothing” to stop Trump.

After years of Democrats trying to stop the president, at least one is starting to admit their efforts have been futile—both in resisting the president and in refusing to help him pass meaningful legislation.

“It is one thing for a sitting president to break the law. It’s another to let him,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a follow-up tweet.

“The integrity of our democracy isn’t threatened when a president breaks the law. It‘s threatened when we do nothing about it,” she continued. “The GOP’s silence & refusal to act shouldn’t be a surprise. Ours is.”

Twitchy reports her remarks did not go over well to some people online:

The Washington Examiner reports:

The late-night salvo from Ocasio-Cortez comes two months after she and Pelosi met and appeared to move past a feud that blew wide open when the speaker dismissed the influence of Ocasio-Cortez and her “squad” of fellow high-profile liberal freshman congresswomen that includes Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley.

The tweets also follow a tumultuous week for Trump due to the emergence of a whistleblower complaint from within in the U.S. Intelligence Community. This complaint, which the Trump administration is withholding from Congress, reportedly relates to a July phone call in which Trump pressured the Ukrainian president to investigate former VP Joe Biden’s son Hunter, who did business in Ukraine while his father was vice president.


Even as more than half the Democratic caucus supports an impeachment inquiry, Pelosi has resisted a formal House vote that would authorize the House Judiciary Committee to launch an official impeachment inquiry. The California Democrat has called impeachment “divisive” and said Americans want the House to proceed cautiously, yet she has been unable to mollify an increasingly agitated base.
