Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke out to Democrats who were busy investigating President Trump's accusation – and fellow lawmakers cheated on & # 39; sitting on their hands & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I think a disapproval investigation is imminent & # 39 ;, said the first New York lawyer CNN.
She spoke after speaker Nancy Pelosi presented her final remarks in which she set out a policy designed to keep fellow democrats from diving into deposition procedures without sufficient information – or without a guarantee that the senate effort would fail.
& # 39; I think a disapproval investigation is imminent & # 39 ;, Rep. Warned. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)
Ocasio-Cortez delivered its own powerful response. & # 39; If now is not the time … what is the bar, what is the line that we are waiting to be crossed for a disapproval investigation, and so far it seems that there is none, & # 39 ; she said.
& # 39; And so without a clear boundary, it seems as if we are sitting on our hands a bit & # 39 ;, she continued. & # 39; So, if time is not right now, then I think a lot of people want to know, when is the time? & # 39;
She spoke Tuesday after Pelosi said that Democrats in Congress & # 39; not even close & # 39; when it comes to dropping President Donald Trump, but admitted that the & # 39; option is not off the table & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; It doesn't even come close to our caucus, & # 39; she said when she was pressed on the deposition problem, admitting that Jerry Nadler, president of the Judiciary Committee, wants her to continue with the issue.
& # 39; It doesn't even come close to us, & # 39; said Nancy Pelosi, the landlord, on the issue of deposition on Tuesday, where she continues to insist on caution
& # 39; It seems as if we are a bit on our hands & # 39 ;, said Ocasio-Cortez about opening an investigation into President Donald Trump's accusation.
& # 39; I'm only touched by this fake witch hunt & # 39 ;, President Trump muttered Tuesday

With 50 or 60 Democrats behind it, the deposition of the accusation has a momentum but is by far the majority in the caucus with 235 members.
Pelosi was visibly irritated when she was confronted with repeated questions on the subject during a question-and-answer session during the Peter G. Peterson Foundation 2019 Fiscal Summit.
She insisted on an accusation and admitted: & # 39; It's not off the table, & # 39; Pelosi admitted.
But the speaker looked frustrated when she was repeatedly asked about the president during the 30-minute question and answer session.
& # 39; I don't care what you ask me, & # 39; Pelosi said to CNN questioner Manu Raju pressing her on President Trump. & # 39; I'm not going to talk about him anymore. & # 39;
Later she added, with repeated questions about Trump: & # 39; If I wanted to talk about the president, I would have more important work to do at home. & # 39;
Often the person who most likes to talk about deposition is President Trump, who takes into account that public opinion polls do not show public support for the effort.
Trump fought off the Russian probe and the Democratic investigators Tuesday, calling it a & # 39; witch hunt & # 39 ;, hours before the House Intelligence Committee to interrogate Trump campaign contacts Russia and the son of President Donald Trump Jr. was back in the Senate Intelligence Committee testimony.
& # 39; And the amazing thing is that I am only struck by this fake witch hunt, although they no longer call Russia because there was no collusion, & # 39; said Trump in the White House.
& # 39; So now they want to try saying: & # 39; Well, did he block a covert appointment? & # 39; So there was no crime. The crime was by the Democrats, people. In my opinion, they have committed many crimes. And time will tell what happens there. But the crime was by the Democrats, & he said.
