Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showed her support Tuesday for the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment efforts, adding that Senate Republicans who “knowingly vote against impeachment of this president knowing his corruption” will “have that stain on their careers the rest of their lives.”
‘Stain On Their Careers’
“Once the House impeaches, the House has impeached the president,” Ocasio-Cortez told reporters Tuesday, despite the fact that that there hasn’t been a full impeachment vote in the House.
“If they (Senate Republicans) want to fail it, then I want to see every Republican go on the record and knowingly vote against impeachment of this president, knowing his corruption so that they can have that stain on their careers the rest of their lives because this is outrageous to protect the amount of lawlessness,” she said.

This is Not New for AOC
Chairman Jerry Nadler wants a committee vote. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi keeps claiming the party is “united” yet continues to stall impeachment efforts.
“I think you should characterize it [the resolution] for what it is,” Pelosi told Fox News. “It’s a continuation of what we have been doing. You know, we all work together on these things.”
Ocasio-Cortez was calling for Trump’s impeachment even before she won her House seat, calling it a “no-brainer.”
AOC renewed her calls for impeachment over the weekend after reports of an investigation into military spending associated with Trump’s Turnberry resort:

Pelosi is Stalling for a Reason
The notion that Republicans who oppose impeachment will somehow tarnish their careers could only be believed by someone so Trump deranged that they can’t understand a party supporting its president.
Not to mention, what did he actually do that rises to the level of an impeachable offense?
Democrats will continue to behave as though literally everything is worthy of impeachment. Most Americans see through it, and Pelosi, for all her faults, is playing smart politics to try to avoid it. She knows it would backfire on Democrats, potentially hurting their chances across the board in 2020.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks Republicans who don’t back impeachment will hurt their careers. The truth is, Democrats who keeping pushing this ridiculousness have already hurt their credibility and will continue to diminish it further the longer they keep this up.
