Many know I take no pleasure in discussions of impeachment. I didn’t campaign on it, & rarely discuss it unprompted.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 18, 2019
We all prefer working on our priorities: pushing Medicare for All, tackling student loans, & a Green New Deal.
But the report squarely puts this on our doorstep.
