Democratic socialist and Congresswoman-Elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that she would be “supportive” of the new Democratic-controlled House of Representatives bringing forward articles of impeachment against President Trump, during an interview with the Washington Examiner on Monday.

The Washington Examiner‘s Nicholas Ballasy asked Ocasio-Cortez about the standard for impeachment that Republicans used in the ’90s against then-President Bill Clinton, and how it would apply today to Trump and how Democrats approach the issue.

“Well, I just think, overall, when you look at the broad stroke they took, how far they would take, and how granularly they would dig into that process,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Ballasy followed up by asking Ocasio-Cortez about the recent developments in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and whether Democrats should move towards impeachment.

“I would be supportive,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.
