Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her demand for President Trump’s impeachment Tuesday; saying Republican support for the Commander-in-Chief is “outrageous.”
“I want to see every Republican go on the record and knowingly vote against impeachment of this president knowing his corruption, having it on the record … because this is outrageous to protect the amount of lawlessness,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her fierce attacks against the Electoral College this week; calling the centuries’ old institution a “bogus scam” while cooking instant Macaroni and Cheese.
“I’m not taking it back. It’s bogus, it’s a scam. I talked about how bogus the Electoral College is and Fox News got really mad… For all these folks that say the Electoral College is to instill fairness, well, we literally only select one very narrow group to allow their vote to count more than other people,” said AOC.
“This original compromise was to accommodate slaveowners, so it’s codified and institutional,” she added.

Midwest lawmakers slammed Ocasio-Cortez last week after she called the Electoral College a racist “scam.”
“Eliminating the current system in favor of electing the president via the national popular vote would shift power to more heavily populated states, such as Ocasio-Cortez’s home of New York. Midwestern states like Michigan and Wisconsin, now heavily sought-after swing states, and smaller ones like Iowa would have less of an impact should this happen,” reports Fox News.
“Actually @AOC, eliminating the Electoral College would silence our voices here in Iowa and in many other states across the country. This is just more evidence of how out of touch the Democrats have become,” posted Sen. Joni Ernst on social media.
The great sage, AOC, apparently didn't take Civics so she wants to get rid of the Electoral College. The college we need to close is the one who gave her a degree! She won't watch this, but hope you will. Electoral College is good for Dems and GOP. https://t.co/1wRD6fM9mx

BUSTED! Court Docs Show Dems Began Impeachment Probe WEEKS BEFORE Mueller Report
Recently released court documents show the Democrats’ push to impeach President Trump began before Robert Mueller completed his Russia-Collusion report; contradicting previous statements from multiple prominent lawmakers.
“Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee suggested in a court filing Monday that they have been carrying out an impeachment investigation of President Trump since before Robert Mueller’s report was even submitted, which appears to contradict previous statements by committee chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif,” reports Fox News.
“Nadler first claimed earlier this month that ‘formal impeachment proceedings’ were underway when he filed a petition to get secret grand jury information from the Mueller report. But Monday’s filing in a separate case looking to compel testimony from former White House counsel Don McGahn suggested that it had already started on March 4 — weeks before Mueller sent his report to Attorney General Bill Barr on March 22,” adds Fox.
“On March 4, 2019, the Judiciary Committee opened an investigation into ‘threats to the rule of law,’ encompassing alleged obstruction of justice, public corruption and other abuses of power by President Trump, his associates, and members of his Administration,” the filing states.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler confirmed his office has launched “formal impeachment proceedings” against President Trump this week; adding Democrats are investigating “all the evidence” contained in the Mueller Report and beyond.
“This is formal impeachment proceedings,” Nadler told CNN. “We are investigating all the evidence, gathering the evidence. And we will [at the] conclusion of this — hopefully by the end of the year — vote to vote articles of impeachment to the House floor. Or we won’t. That’s a decision that we’ll have to make. But that’s exactly the process we’re in right now.”
“The fact is, we are doing an investigation. We are investigating the facts, investigating the evidence,” Nadler said. “We are going into court to get witnesses all with a view toward deciding and recommending to the House whether to impeach the president.”
Nadler’s announcement comes just days after he demanded more documents related to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh -some dating back to 2001.
“Senate Democrats spent months launching false accusations in an attempt to smear Justice Kavanaugh’s reputation and block his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, and now House Democrats want to follow suit with yet another fishing expedition to tarnish his good name,” Rep. Doug Collins said.

Nadler’s request included “certain presidential records related to Kavanaugh’s service in the White House from 2001 to 2006.
“As a result of this process, the Senate Judiciary Committee received only a small fraction of Justice Kavanaugh’s White House record before voting on his nomination,” Nadler wrote.
“When are we going to move on from the smear campaigns, and begin working on real, bipartisan solutions to improve the lives of the Americans we were elected to represent?” Collins added.
