Ocasio-Cortez Frustrated With Pelosi Over Trump Impeachment

Sunday on ABC’s This Week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) said progressives in the Democrat Party are frustrated with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over her reluctance to move forward with the impeachment of President Trump.

“This is about the presence and evidence that the president may have committed a crime, in this case, more than one,” AOC said. “And so I believe that our decision on impeachment should be based in our constitutional responsibilities and duties and not in elections or polling.”

Asked about “progressive frustration” with Pelosi, AOC replied, “I think it’s quite real. I believe that there is a very real animus and desire to make sure that we are — that — that we are holding this president to account.”
