Elizabeth Warren started a trend, it seems, when she called on Congress to impeach Trump.
Now “young bartender” presidential hopeful Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is saying the same and vowing to sign Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s resolution to impeach the president.
Ocasio-Cortez said it was our Constitutional duty to push for Trump’s impeachment, still holding to the Dems’ beloved fairytale story of Trump – the evil ruler of the kingdom – conspiring with the even more villianous king of the faraway land of Russia – Putin – to wreck havoc and chaos on all!

News of AOC's suggestion is circulating on Twitter.
Take a look:
The Hill has more details to share:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Thursday that she would sign on to a resolution calling for an investigation into whether President Trump should be impeached, citing special counsel Robert Mueller's report in her decision-making.
"Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President," she tweeted.
"It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution," the progressive lawmaker added. "As such, I’ll be signing onto @RashidaTlaib’s impeachment resolution."
Fellow freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) last month introduced a resolution calling for an investigation by the House Judiciary Committee into whether Trump committed impeachable offenses. Tlaib said at the time that she hopes the resolution "ensures we don't have a lawless society that results in irreparable harm to the American people."
The Washington Times also had the following to say:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Thursday that the special counsel’s report is a clear invitation to Congress to impeach President Trump — and she’s climbing on board the effort.
The New York Democrat took to Twitter to say she considers herself a reluctant impeachment warrior, “but the report squarely puts this on our doorstep.”
“As such, I’ll be signing onto @RashidaTlaib’s impeachment resolution,” she said, referring to her fellow freshman congresswoman.
