Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Tuesday told CNN’s Manu Raju that it’s time for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to start up impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump.
“I trust the Speaker is taking a measured approach to ensure that we’re moving everyone forward,” she said. “Being a Speaker is hard, holding this party together is a difficult task! But I think I that we know what we need to do — I personally think that we have to move forward.”

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin schools Kellyanne Conway for clinging to her White House job despite violating federal rules
The Hatch Act prohibits federal employees from engaging in partisan attacks that can be construed as campaign-related. In June, the Office of Special Counsel (OSC), a government watchdog group, found that Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway violated the law by “disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media." They called on President Donald Trump to fire Conway.
“Ms. Conway’s violations, if left unpunished, would send a message to all federal employees that they need not abide by the Hatch Act’s restrictions. Her actions thus erode the principal foundation of our democratic system—the rule of law,” the OSC said in a statement.
