Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez publicly pushed Tuesday to start the accusation of President Trump despite the obstacles, just as landlord Nancy Pelosi tries to reduce the pressure on the increased internal pressure.
& # 39; We have to do our job and vote on deposition & # 39 ;, she wrote in one of the tweets pushing the House to move on and start a deposition investigation.
The first-term legislator adopted some of the most important arguments put forward by Pelosi and her allies against jumping on the deposition train.
Pelosi has warned colleagues that, even if the House were to accuse Trump, the effort would almost certainly fail in the Senate, where Republicans rallied over the president in matters big and small.
& # 39; We must do our job and vote on deposition & # 39 ;, Rep. Wrote. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Tuesday
It can also have a counterproductive political effect, without necessarily having to remove Trump from his position.
& # 39; Like what happens in the House, the Senate has no control, what happens in the Senate, the House should not control & # 39 ;, Ocasio-Cortez wrote its 4 million followers on Twitter.
& # 39; DoJ outlined ev of 10 criminal agencies & # 39 ;, she wrote, referring to 10 areas with potential obstructions discussed in the Mueller report. & # 39; Pres now blocks legally binding subpoenas. We have to do our job and vote on deposition. What Sen is doing about them, she continued, with abbreviations for president and senate.
Former White House advisor Don McGahn challenged a summons on Tuesday. House Judiciary Chairman Jerold Nadler held a planned hearing anyway, shouting out Trump for intimidating the witness & # 39; and said: & # 39; Our subpoenas are not optional. & # 39;
Ocasio-Cortez also took an important political argument from leadership – that if Democrats are considered to be in a hurry to blame the facts instead of following the facts, Trump could use the issue against them and possibly control the House and all supervisory power would cost them.
& # 39; It's just as politicized as a maneuver not to accuse overwhelming evidence, as it is to accuse the case, & # 39; she wrote. & # 39; Congress swore an oath to uphold the constitution. That includes deposition. We have a duty to preserve our institutions + to uphold the rule of law, & she added.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stated that a lack of support in the Senate should not affect the decision to dismiss

President Trump & # 39; now obstructs legally binding summons & # 39 ;, wrote Ocasio-Cortez
McGahn is prominent in the Mueller report, which describes phone calls he received from Trump at home. McGahn says Trump has told him to contact the Deputy Attorney General and tell him that he cannot be a special counselor
She also raised the 1998 Bill Clinton accusation, an attempt that was not popular with the public and that cost republican seats.
& # 39; Remember that Clinton was also charged – Sen failed, & # 39; wrote Ocasio-Cortez, again with abbreviations. & # 39; Our institutions did not suffer then, but they are enormously damaged today, unwillingness to blame. Whether it is Dem fear or GOP recklessness does not matter. Failure to accuse now is neglect of a fair trial. & # 39;
Her friend and ally Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) Has completed the support for an attempted removal.

Ocasio-Cortez did not argue to postpone the Senate, where the Republicans have control and it would be extremely difficult to reach a two-thirds threshold on deposition
She argued that it was & # 39; politicized & # 39; would be to prevent impeachment because of the potential costs
Senior members have also encouraged efforts in the midst of a split between house democrats. Lawmakers, including Rep. Jamie Raskin, David Cicilline from Rhode Island and Joe Neguse from Colorado urge now to continue with a search for disapproval.
Cicilline tweeted Monday: & # 39; If Don McGahn won't testify tomorrow, it's time to start a @realDonaldTrump deposition search. & # 39; Other Democrats have defended the proposition that future presidents can conclude without conviction that they can get away with the same obstacle that Trump accuses of committing.
Pelosi heard from members in a closed door leaders meeting on Tuesday. The Caucus will review the situation during a Wednesday meeting.
Before the mid-term that the Democrats led the House, it was often Trump and his GOP allies who discussed the accusation of the accusation – rather than the Democrats, trying to campaign on health care and a legislative agenda.
