Trump Cites AOC to Say He Shouldn’t be Impeached, AOC Responds: ‘I’ll Call Your Bluff’
President Donald Trump attempted to cite Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to put down talk of impeachment, but the progressive lawmaker quickly responded, “I’ll call your bluff any day of the week.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “I think we have a very real risk of losing the Presidency to Donald Trump.” I agree, and that is the only reason they play the impeach card, which cannot be legally used!

Trump tweeted out a partial quote from AOC’s interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl Sunday morning, using it to argue against impeachment.
Her full quote was: “I think that we have a very real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump if we do not have a presidential candidate that is fighting for true transformational change in the lives of working people in the United States.”
Ocasio-Cortez herself later responded directly to the president via his favored medium.
Mr. President, you’re from Queens.
You may fool the rest of the country, but I’ll call your bluff any day of the week.
Opening an impeachment inquiry is exactly what we must do when the President obstructs justice, advises witnesses to ignore legal subpoenas, & more.
