(PoliticalLookout.com)- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proved on Sunday that her penchant for far-left politics expands beyond socialized health care and scrapes the edge of anti-democratic revolutionary communist tactics. The far-left congresswoman said during a press conference that Democrats should consider every option to stop the president nominating a new Supreme Court Justice despite having the Constitutional right (and duty) to do so.
Ocasio-Cortez argued that the Democrats should even consider impeaching President Donald Trump or Attorney General William Barr to stop them from filling the seat left behind by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who lost her battle with cancer on Friday.
When a reporter asked Ocasio-Cortez whether she would be in favor of new impeachment hearings against the president of the attorney general, she responded in the affirmative.
“Well, you know, I think, I believe that certainly there has been an enormous amount of law-breaking in the Trump administration,” she said. “I believe that Attorney General Barr is unfit for office and that he has pursued potentially law-breaking behavior.”
If a sitting congresswoman really believed that the attorney general broke the law, shouldn’t she have said something about it before? Or is this just a politically motivated attempt to stop a democratically elected president fulfilling his duty?
“That being said, these are procedures and decisions that are largely up to House Democratic leadership,” she added. “But I believe that also we must consider, again, all of the tools available to our disposal and that all of these options should be entertained and on the table.”
So, a politically motivated impeachment attempt – well, another politically motivated impeachment attempt – is on the cards for AOC.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is open to impeaching @realDonaldTrump to stop him from filling the Supreme Court vacancy.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, another far-left critic of President Donald Trump, nodded in agreement as AOC made the comments.
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also floated the possibility of impeachment to stop President Donald Trump replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
