Pelosi Declines to Comment on Possibility of Trump Impeachment

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Thursday that she would support impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump after reading special counsel Robert Mueller's report.

Nadler has claimed that the committee needs to see the full report and the underlying evidence in order to determine any further action against the president or his associates. Barr also said Mueller's report did conclude that Russian Federation tried to influence the U.S. election, but no American was part of those efforts. "It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution", Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet.

When Tlaib introduced the resolution last month, she said her intention in doing so is to ensure "we don't have a lawless society that results in irreparable harm to the American people".

Pelosi added that Congress will leave up to its constitutional obligations. The report declines to bring such a charge, but it makes asserts that the responsibility for bringing such a charge falls to Congress. In 2018, she launched a long-shot primary campaign against incumbent Representative Joe Crowley, a fixture of the Democratic establishment, and pulled off a shocking upset on her way to becoming the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.

"Regardless of whether the obstructive acts described by Mueller was criminal or whether the litany of illicit contacts with Russian Federation rose to the level of conspiracy, they're dishonest, unethical, and unpatriotic", Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, tweeted.

Asked about the Mueller report's findings, Pelosi said, "I would just say this, any CODEL I go on".

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., authored a glowing profile of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., for the annual "Time 100" list.
