- Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made the comment Saturday in a late tweet
- Blasted House Democrats for not accusing President Donald Trump
- Democrats accuse Trump of impropriety during a telephone conversation with the Ukrainian president
- House speaker Nancy Pelosi is increasingly under party pressure to blame
- But Pelosi is trying to rule in her caucus to prevent kickback in 2020
Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has the failure of its own party to accuse President Donald Trump of a & # 39; national scandal & # 39; mentioned.
The first-year congresswoman from New York made the comments in a tweet late on Saturday, increasing the pressure on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to allow deposition.
& # 39; At this point, the greater national scandal is not the President's law-breaking behavior – it is the Democratic Party's refusal to accuse him of it & # 39 ;, she wrote.
The strong comments made by Ocasio-Cortez are in line with the growing call from some Democrats who demand that party leaders accuse the president, while whistleblower competition from the intelligence community is fueling new indignation.

In the latest controversy, Democrats accuse Trump of asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy for filthy about Joe Biden, in connection with an investigation into a Ukrainian company that served the son of Biden on the board while his father was vice president.
Trump says that Biden has put pressure on the Ukrainian government to stop the investigation under threat of withholding American aid.
The allegations about Trump came to the fore in a whistleblower complaint from a member of the American intelligence community who heard the call with Zelenskiy or read a transcript of it, although details of the complaint were not made public.
Trump calls the allegations & # 39; just another political hackjob & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I have conversations with many leaders. It is always appropriate, & he said about the July 25 call with Zelenskiy that is at the heart of the controversy.
House speaker Nancy Pelosi has tried to withhold calls for accusation and fears serious damage to her party's chances in the 2020 elections
Pelosi says that if reports about the complaint come out, Trump will have to deal with & # 39; serious repercussions & # 39; and the nation & # 39; will have serious, urgent concerns for our national security & # 39 ;.
But she has long resisted calls from her party to accuse Trump, probably knowing that the Republican-controlled Senate would never condemn and feared that the spectacle would harm the opportunities of the Democrats in the 2020 elections.
A senior democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee, who is considering accusing Trump, said the incident could contribute to the panel's deliberations.
& # 39; This is deadly seriously & # 39 ;, said David Cicilline, representative on Twitter. & # 39; If the President does not allow the whistleblower complaint against him to be handed over to Congress, we add it to the accusation articles. & # 39;
Democratic contenders for the party's presidential nomination are also increasingly joining the swarm and asking for deposition.
& # 39; What is Congress waiting for? This is crazy. Unless we take action now, we will see the end of American democracy, & Bet 39 said Rourke in a tweet on Saturday.
Biden was more reluctant and said on Saturday that Trump could be dropped off, depending on the results of a home investigation.
