AOC claims there is ‘crime wave’ within GOP after saying officials should ignore court rulings
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed there is a crimewave within the Republican Party. She cited former President Donald Trump’s indictment, and controversy over Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said that it was difficult to see a path for the Republican Party that refuses accountability and, in fact, violates the law.
“The Republican Party is the source of the crime wave. It’s within all ….. It is within all of us. She said that a former president of United States was just indicted. “We need to hold our system accountable.”
Trump was charged with 34 counts of falsifying records business records in the First Degree in Manhattan. Prosecutors are investigating hush-money payments Trump allegedly made to Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress, and Karen McDougal (former Playboy model).
Thomas was accused by receiving extravagant gifts from a wealthy friend. One expert called it a political hit job.
Ocasio Cortez said, “I believe we should continue the course. If it is Republicans who decide to protect those breaking the law then they are the ones responsible, but we shouldn’t be complicit.”
Ocasio-Cortez did not mention the alleged corruption of the Biden families, including Hunter Biden’s famous laptop which reportedly contains information on the Biden family’s business dealings in foreign countries.
Ocasio-Cortez and Ron Wyden, Democratic Senator from Oregon, had joined forces days earlier to advocate for the ignoring of a court order to block distribution of mifepristone (a drug that medically induces abortions).
“Sen. “Sen. AOC stated that the courts have the legitimacy and they rely upon the legitimacy of their rulings.” “What they are doing currently is engaging in an unprecedented, dramatic erosion of courts’ legitimacy.”
