Ocasio-Cortez: House Oversight Committee Should Be Talking About Trump's Finances

  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

"I said that by Dems distinguishing themselves by breaking off on procedural...votes, they were inadvertently making a list of targets for the GOP and for progressive advocates on their pro-ICE vote".

"But honestly we shouldn't have been in either, and we should end the AUMF now while we're at it", she tweeted.

Head over to The New Yorker to read Ocasio-Cortez's full interview.

Obama was initially reluctant to respond to the conspiracy theory that he was born in Kenya, which first cropped up during the 2008 presidential campaign and then again in 2011, when Trump picked up the idea to generate publicity for himself and his NBC reality show, "The Celebrity Apprentice".

But by then it was entrenched on the right, and there are still some die-hards who refuse to accept it.

Moore also slammed the Green New Deal as being "so completely insane it is bound to be rejected in the end", while calling the young Democrat a "garden-variety hypocrite", in response to a New York Post story that said Ocasio-Cortez frequently used gas-guzzling Uber and Lyft rides during her 2018 campaign instead of car-sharing or taking the subway.

Just this week, she responded to a front-page New York Post expose that the champion of so-called Green New Deal is known to ride in a vehicle.

"I don't think it's productive", Michigan Rep. Dan Kildee said Saturday on Fox News' "Cavuto Live". While the newspaper assumed it was a hired auto, the congresswoman tweeted that her aunt "was very upset" that the paper "insulted" her personal vehicle. "Because that's where I think actually some of the most troubling practices are, with direct relevance to the American people under the scope of Oversight".

Ocasio-Cortez has called out the paper multiple times for its frequent coverage of her. "A Latina. And I'm a liberal, a [Democratic Socialists of America] member", Ocasio-Cortez said. Her office's fact sheet on the plan, released last month, says that efforts to combat climate change should include "massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere, build out high-speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary [and] create affordable public transit available to all, with the goal to replace every combustion-engine vehicle". "But this ravenous hysteria - it's really getting to a level that is kind of out of control. I have days when it seems some people want to stoke just enough of it to have just enough plausible deniability if something happens to me".
