When asked about this tweet Cortez responed with this.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) told reporters Tuesday that she wants the House to vote to impeach President Trump since it will force Republicans to take a vote on the issue.

“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 so that they can have that stain on their careers for the rest of their lives,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“It is beyond time, and we have to end this lawlessness and corruption coming out of the White House,” she said.

She’s right, this is indeed what needs to happen. 

Of course Mitch McConnell will fight this to the end.

However once enough pressure is applied he will have to decide between protecting Donald Trump and protecting his chances at reelection. 

In a choice like that Trump comes in at a distant second.
