Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tells Trump Jr to ‘get out’ if he ‘can’t stand the heat’: ‘I will take you down a peg’

Published

on

New progressive champion Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke to Anderson Cooper during Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” and actually apologized if the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., was hurt by her insults.

“If he felt genuinely threatened by me, then I apologize,” she said. “But I think that frankly, it’s any legal advice that anyone would give him.”

Ocasio-Cortez noted that Trump Jr. should probably not come on the attack against those in Congress because they now have subpoena power over him.

Cooper reminded her that most politicians don’t apologize, but Ocasio-Cortez said she doesn’t mind breaking all of the rules.

“On the other hand, if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen,” she said of Trump Jr.’s whining.

“People know that if you’re coming after me, you’re opening yourself up,” she continued. “People know that my style is sarcastic but honest and I take people at their word. And I will hold them accountable as well.”

She said that she wasn’t threatening consequences to anyone who comes after her, but admitted: “I will take you down a peg if you’re not being fair.”

She also said that Trump didn’t invent racism but he’s given a voice to it, and for that, he should be held responsible.

According to Politico, Trump is still facing 15 civil and criminal probes by at least nine federal, state, and municipal agencies on everything from obstruction of justice to campaign finance violations to using his office to enrich his family and businesses. But president is not bothered by these investigations — or at least, he believes that he can use them to his political advantage.

Meet the mysterious conservative lawyer who keeps turning up in the Russia probes

Published

on

A prominent conservative lawyer keeps showing up in dramas central to the Trump administration and its battles with Congress—and it turns out he has intimate knowledge of Felix Sater’s intelligence work for the U.S. government while he was working with Trump.

The Moscow-born Sater is the financial criminal and violent felon who worked closely with Trump for years while simultaneously serving as a long-term informant for the FBI and other national security agencies.

In 2015 and into mid-2016, Sater pushed for the development of a Trump Tower in Moscow with his old friend Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime fixer, while trying to enlist support from the Russian government for Trump’s campaign.

House Democrats have a new list of ‘star witnesses’ who are beyond Trump’s reach: report

Published

on

According to a report from Politico, House leaders have developed a new plan to get what are called "star witnesses" to appear in public hearings who are outside of Donald Trump's ability to block them from speaking by asserting executive privilege.

With former Oval Office employees avoiding or ignoring subpoenas as the White House runs interference for them, investigators are eyeing people who were close to Donald Trump's 2016 campaign -- but were not government employees.
