Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Just Expertly Laid a Trap to Get Donald Trump's Tax Returns

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Just Expertly Laid a Trap to Get Donald Trumpís Tax Returns

Her line of questioning during Michael Cohenís hearing was praised for its clarity and deftness.

While Republicans on Wednesday repeatedly hammered Michael Cohen over his efforts to secure a lucrative media deal, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used her time to focus on one of the most consequential topics concerning investigations into President Donald Trump: his ever-elusive tax returns.

It was one of the more anticipated appearances by a lawmaker on the House Oversight and Reform Committee. Her clear and purposeful line of questioning, which appeared to lay the groundwork for the committee to subpoena the presidentís tax returns while capturing the names of those in Trumpís inner circle who may know details of his financials, was widely praised.

1. I've practiced law for over 30 years

And I was very impressed with how prepared she was, how smooth she was, and how smart she is. In law we call it laying a foundation, and she did it as well as any lawyer could have.

3. As soon as she started speeking

some one from the Rethugs began mumbling something to the effect,what is she doing here or something of that nature. Then the Chairman cut the mics next to him.

AOC is going to be a positive force for our Party and the Rethugs are only going to be burned to the ground time and time again.

2. I need to be more careful with what I tell my bartender.

She made all those experienced legal eagles look like chum.
