Ocasio-Cortez Slams Lawmakers Who Ask For ‘Therapeutic’ And Reject Trump Impeachment – Thebritishjournal

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday slammed Republican lawmakers who asked for “healing” and objected to the idea of impeaching President Donald Trump following Wednesday’s violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Ocasio-Cortez appeared on ABC’s “This Week” when she slammed GOP lawmakers. Host George Stephanopoulos questioned her about a letter in which Republicans asked Democrats to discontinue their efforts to impeach Trump and called for “healing.”

“We have to understand that what happened on Wednesday was an insurrection against the United States,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “The officials urging for no serious consequences after Wednesday’s attack on our country — including the impeachment, removal, expulsion, and/or indictment of officials who aided, abetted, or incited the attack — are opening the door for it to happen again.”

The New York Democrat — who was in the Capitol when thousands of pro-Trump rioters violently barreled their way into the building on Wednesday — also said Trump’s presence in the Oval Office “presents danger” and that she backs calls for his impeachment. 

“Our main priority is to ensure the removal of Donald Trump as president of the United States. Every minute and every hour that he is in office represents a clear and present danger, not just to the United States Congress but frankly to the country,” she said.
