Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has announced that she will be signing an impeachment resolution against President Donald Trump that was introduced by Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
The freshman Congresswoman had quoted a tweet from the Washington Post which highlighted a portion of the report stating that “Mueller’s team couldn’t rule out that Trump criminally obstructed justice” and that the decision would be left to Congress to determine what to do next.
Ocasio-Cortez commented that as it is Congress’ responsibility to investigate obstruction, she would be signing on to the resolution.
“Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution,” the progressive lawmaker added. “As such, I’ll be signing onto @RashidaTlaib’s impeachment resolution.”

The impeachment resolution was introduced by Tlaib last month and called for an investigation by the House Judiciary Committee to look for impeachable offenses by President Trump.
Ocasio-Cortez recently told Yahoo! that she has many reasons she supports impeaching the president.
“I think you could reach in a bag and pull so many things out that are impeachable of this president. I support impeaching this president,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
