AOC Brilliantly Lays Our Path To Trump’s Tax Returns At Cohen Hearing

Alexandia Ocasio-Cortez stole the show at the Michael Cohen hearing on Wednesday, but she may have done more than just prove herself to be a sharp and serious congresswoman. Analysts are speculating that she may have strategically laid the groundwork necessary to finally subpoena Donald Trump’s tax returns and find out if he was lying about being a billionaire on top of everything else.

“Ocasio-Cortez started by picking up on previous lines of questioning regarding whether he knew if Trump ever ‘provided inflated assets to an insurance company,'” writes Daniel Politi for Slate. “When Cohen answered yes she continued: ‘Do you think we need to review his financial statements and his tax returns in order to compare them?’ Cohen answered yes again.”

Ocasio-Cortez continues asking about Trump’s taxes and related matters such as the value of the property he’s inherited — information that would all be found in a person’s tax returns. Though this probably doesn’t mean that Democrats can subpoena Trump’s tax returns tomorrow, multiple political experts are saying that this could put the party on the path to doing so.

They were also impressed with how well she used her limited time, rather than wasting it on speeches like some other people we know.

Expert opinions are great, but the general non-checkmark public loves her, too.

This is absolutely why the right is terrified of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She is going to set them up and knock them down.
