Democratic Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who defeated the chair of the House Democratic Caucus Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) on Tuesday, said that she would support impeaching President Trump during an interview on Wednesday.

CNN’s Poppy Harlow asked Ocasio-Cortez if she would back impeaching Trump if Democrats retake the House after the 2018 midterm elections.

“I would support impeachment,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I think that, you know, we have the grounds to do it. I think what really we need to focus on is making sure that we are advocating for the policies to win in November.”

“But ultimately I think that what we need to kind of focus on is ensuring that we can, you know, when people break the law, potentially break the law, that we have to hold everyone accountable and that no person is above that law,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Last week, New Hampshire Democratic congressional candidate Naomi Andrews said that she would also support impeaching Trump if Democrats retake the House in 2018.
