Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) did a rare prime time media interview Wednesday night to address her thoughts on the impeachment inquiry. The freshman Congresswoman has been calling to impeach Trump for months. She told CNN’s Chris Cuomo:
“This Ukraine allegation is head and shoulders one of the most serious and urgent allegations that we have seen… I think it’s an allegation that frankly has united more members of the party on impeachment than any other.”
“One of the things we’ve been seeing by the president is he has been engaging in continuing escalating disturbing behaviors. This is a very serious matter of national security. We’re talking about the president using the full power of the United States government in order to pursue and manufacture a politically motivated investigation against a political opponent.”
"We need to do our job."
