Ocasio-Cortez Threatens Don Jr. With Congress’s Subpoena Power
“Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.”
Congresswoman-elect, Ocasio-Cortez threatened Donald Trump Jr. with Congress’s subpoena power Friday.
It began when Don Jr. posted the following meme to Instagram:
(It’s funny tho)
To which, Ocasio-Cortez threatened:
I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up.
Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.
Have fun! https://t.co/oQ6MsdJYCk

Only later to insist it wasn’t a threat:
For the GOP crying that this is a “threat” – I don’t have power to subpoena anybody.
Congress as a body, GOP included, has the power. No indiv. member can issue a subpoena unless they are a Chair (which, as a freshman, I can assure you I will not be). Also must be under purview.

The First Amendment. How does it work? It’s almost like it was designed to protect the public from the tendency of elected officials to flirt with fascism.
Troll all you want, but when you get smart and start threatening subpoenas (before even being sworn in, mind you), take the backlash you get.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
I still can not believe that piece of crap is a congresswoman
She’s an imbecile
Mazie Hirono is a Senator. She is as dumb as Obama.
She’s an imbecile . Period.
How many centuries is it going take until you believe it?
As confounding as trying to figure out the gaggle of complete f**king morons who elected her into office.
The Democrat leadership is aging out.
Got to have a few idiots in training in the pipeline for the future.
Ocasio-Cortez is an example of an acorn sized brain, which is bruised and swollen, from sloshing around in her fat head.
Puerto Ricans have the lowest average IQ in America, coming in at 83. That is what happened to Ocasio-Cortez.
@gonzotx. That was actually a very good Publis city stunt on occasional’s part, it will go over well with her constituency and activist Democrats in general. it’s probably popular with nearly all Democrats. It’s a jack a ss thing to say, doesn’t mean it’s not a smart move in politics.
this Waters witch behavior – fits right in.
She really is this daft. This woman is about to enter into a very, very cold place wherein she will be relegated to non-existence.
A dog poops, on a cold night. The poop freezes and stepping in it has little consequence. Ocasio-Cortez.
Loopy–who will be a very junior Dim Congresscritter. She will be number one with a bullet on San Fran Nan’s dogshit list. She hasn’t figured out that committees issue subpoenas—not individual Congressmen (or women). I don’t know what commmittees Nancy will assign her to. But you can bet that the chairman of whatever committee she is on will determine whether a subpoena issues or not. And since she’s pissed off all the Rethuglicans,not a single one of them on her committtee(s) will vote for issuance of a subpoena. She’s cute–but not bright.
Cuteness is in the eye of the beholder.
So ocasio castro errr…. I mean cortez is also a word smith? I can’t say as her twit err…tweet was really intelligent.
a “very, very large brain” idea?????????????
If she’s this thin-skinned, she’d better never wander over to The_Donald at Reddit. The giddy kiddies have been having far too much fun with the ignorant things she’s already said.
Fidel Castro would be proud.
It IS a threat.
And if you ask me, she should be shamed into resignation.
She’s a socialist/communist, and as such she believes in the absolute power of government over the individual. And she already fancies herself as ‘government’!
That would presume she is able to feel shame.
Think someone’s coaching her on the spelling and grammar of those tweets? Coming from a bear of such little brain, I’d expect them to be somewhat more . . . well, let’s say “freeform” than they actually are.
I don’t want to say anything weird, like that there may be unsuspected depths here, but really, nowadays spelling things like subponea and purview correctly are not something to be dismissed casually.
Wouldn’t this constitute abuse of power of some sort?
I am reminded more and more of that movie ‘Idiocracy’
You liked the fictional program “Balls” didn’t you!?!
I hope Pelosi is as vindictive as I think she is and remembers AOC joined a sit-in outside her office when committee assignments are decided. The twerp wants finance, commerce or ways and means. Nancy, please assign her to the committee on gluten-free refreshments or perhaps the coffee fund.
Nancy is in desperate need of new blood and leadership, and will take wacko-nutjob under her wing.
Look for Piggy Nancy to go completely over the leftist cliff.
This isn’t going to go well for any of us.
“All your meme are belong to us now!” The bare naked face of this socialist is laid bare, and what we see is a monster. Socialists will strip you of your rights, they will put you in a gulag, send you to be re-educated, starve you, torture you, kill you. She is going to do a lot of damage to the democrats, which they fully deserve.
“Inside every progressive is an totalitarian screaming to get out.”
“Donald Trump Jr. trolls Ocasio-Cortez with meme implying socialists eat dogs”
Isn’t it strange that the Washington Post failed to get the point of the meme? The point is that people under socialism starve?
Am I not remembering some other politicritter who famously ate a dog?
There’s even a song:
“I ate a dog, and I liked it…”
Post staffers apparently don’t read the paper’s own reporting about Venezuela, or other socialist paradises.
Venezuela didn’t do socialism right, doncha know? Only rocket scientist/ brain surgeon occasional cortex can do socialism right. All it takes is a bit of totalitarian oppression.
Another “progressive” shows herself to be the fascist she really is.
This woman is out of her f–king mind. She, and everyone like her needs to be driven from public life in America. This sicko narcissist would have fit in quite well as a Khmer Rouge killer in one of Pol Pot’s prisons.
That was a very, very revealing, really scary statement. Even Lois Lerner is freaking out.
fascis, nazism, socialism, and communism have different rhetoric, but in implementation they are so close that you couldn’t slide a slip of paper between them.
True, but they project their fascism on us on the right. Always the knee-jerk reaction of the left – if we are not “racist” we must be call a “fascist” or a “Nazi”, when in fact that is exactly what they propose for (what will be left of) America.
And to think, she’s from a district that’s likely to re-elect her again & again. She’s going to be the crazy cousin in the House forever.
Echoes of the sainted Obama’s “joking” in 2009, at a commencement speech at Arizona State University. The school had denied him an honorary degree, prompting Obama to “joke” that ASU “President (Michael) Crow and the Board of Regents will soon learn all about being audited by the IRS.”
Dumb-o-crat apparatchiks are petty and vindictive narcissists and totalitarians at heart. It doesn’t take much for those vile traits to emerge.
Cortez is similarly vile. I’m already sick of her transparent egotism and stupidity. This twit was mixing cocktails, one year ago — now, she’s supposedly to be treated as a sagacious woman, worthy of deference and respect? Please, spare me.
obama’s “joke” was a slip revealing his modus operandi
For pure joy, just google her and check out the glasses that she is wearing, I’m guessing, to make her look more intelligent than the average barista. There is a future joke/meme. Ms Cortez, are you a member of the bar? Well, I used to mix drinks And work at Starbux.
I am surprised that her wiki page isn’t under constant attack. As Yoda would put it, “the delusion is strong in this one.”
She is a poseur, plain and simple.
Additional confirmation that Dumb-o-crat politics is the refuge of shiftless dolts who are unwilling and/or unable to accomplish anything of substance in the private sector.
Cortez is now earning a generous six-figure salary and benefits, income that she would not even come close to, in the private sector. All for regurgitating fallacious Dumb-o-crat demagoguery talking points, like a brainless marionette.
Right now she’s not earning anything, as she pointed out when she commented on the price of housing in DC. Her new job starts on Jan 3.
Oh, pardon me, gadfly Milhouse — she will be earning a six-figure salary, in one month.
She’ll be overpaid, at that point in time, 30 days hence. Or, do you want to nitpick and quibble about that issue, too?
Do these petty corrections make you feel better about yourself?
America is devolving in to a histrionic, latin-american banana republic untethered and unaware of its founding principles.
the founders wrote the constitution to limit the government. today’s left view the constitution as written as an obstacle to be “interpreted” or even ignored, although they may pay it lip-service.
socialism is incompatible with the founder’s specific intent to limit the power iof government.
to paraphrase a famous expression: socialism is the boot of an all-powerful government with the power to stomp on its subjects at any whim of “social justice.”
O-C is too stupid to comprehend the end-game of her philosophy.
AOC’s voters say that she thinks like they do. She did not get to Congress on her own.
The house GOP missed one of it’s greatest opportunities in not voting lock-step for her to be Speaker of the House.
Ignorance this epic deserves to be the focus of attention for the next two years.
Ocasio-Cortez will be the Democrat nominee in 2024 (the first year she’s eligible) even if there is a sitting Democrat President. A majority of Americans are socialists, and they will vote for openly socialist candidates and policies. To them, she is even more attractive than Bernie Sanders, who likely would have won in 2016 with an even larger majority of the popular vote than Clinton.
White males and Jews are doomed.
If she is this cute and this dumb, there just has to be a huge amount of revenge porn sitting out there somewhere. This woman is just Tonya Harding with a tan.
I wish. The fact that’s she’s barely qualified to breathe (breathing being an autonomic reflex, thankfully – for her) just means that she’ll likely rise to the highest office in the land.
Occluded-Cortex is indeed an idiot. An idiot who was just given deep-state power access. Bad combination, and as stupid as she is, I have little doubt she’ll rise to a position of power relatively quickly within her party. Because that’s what Dems do with those in their party who are incompetent, but are powered by hate and delusion (and unburdened by “morals” and “ethics”). I’m sure they already see her as the 2028 version of Obama.
Hey, what could possibly go wrong?
An ex-army corporal started like this. Everyone laughed at him.
I think we can safely move the conversation forward and give a final nickname to this corporal lunatic:
Btw, this sick f–k broke federal law by threatening Donald Trump Jr.:
She should be forced to resign:
Don’t be sillier than you have to.
We wouldn’t want to out-do you.
You assume she’s stupid. Much of what she is saying is red meat for her crowd. All the democrats insisted Trump was a joke. Are we blinding ourselves to her possible influence because what she’s saying is nonsense?
Sorry for the downvote. Meant to hit reply.
Occasional Cortex and the other Democrats drooling at their chance to persecute Republicans and oppress Americans are perfect examples of why the USA is in a cold civil war right now.
It’s a very, very large brain idea for someone who’s planning to have subpœnas issued against someone to announce publicly in advance that she’ll be doing so in bad faith.
Well, Occasional-Cortex has perceived at least one fact correctly–with the (D) behind her name the bad faith will never come up in the press other than to chuckle about the eternal willingness of establishment Republicans to enable leftist persecution.

Think: boehner, paul ryan, mccain, corker, flake, sessions. McConnell is on probation.
Then you don’t really understand who Hitler-Cortez really is, who actually supports her with $$$ and the useful idiots who digest her sick words as true.
It is always vile when someone has power go to their head. This “woman” has done so in warp speed. Beside being a disgusting socialist, she is the embodiment of the “village idiot”, so much that in the next Democrat gerrymandering in NY State I propose that she get the east Village added to her district so they will officially have their “idiot”.
