Tuesday on CBS’s The Late Show, radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) called on her GOP colleagues who sought pardons from former President Trump over the January 6 Capitol chaos to be “expelled” from Congress.
In testimony provided to the House Select Committee investigating the riot, Reps. Mo Brooks (R-AL), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Scott Perry (R-PA) were all named as having asked Trump for pardons. AOC argued hysterically that they “were willing to commit crimes in order to illegally seize power” and added they needed “to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
“I will say, bare minimum, those who specifically thought pardons for themselves should be expelled from the United States House of Representatives… beyond a shadow of a doubt,” she told host propagandist Stephen Colbert.
“Because if you are a duly elected official and in seeking a pardon, as you mentioned, you are consciously committing — you are admitting to committing a crime,” she continued. “What that means is that they were willing to commit crimes in order to illegally seize power, and no person of any power, and of any seat, of any party, should be willing to do that in order to undermine our democracy. But that’s just the bare minimum.”
If AOC wants accountability from those who actually did commit crimes to seize power illegally, she need look no further than her own Party’s widespread voter fraud that put her comrade Biden in the White House illegitimately.
