‘Keep Trolling, We Have Subpoena Power Next Year’: Ocasio-Cortez Slams Dunk Trump Jr.

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) shot back at Donald Trump Jr. on Friday after the president’s eldest son shared a meme implying that her democratic socialist views would lead to Americans eating dogs.

“I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter. “Please, keep it coming Jr — it’s definitely a ‘very, very large brain’ idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.”

“Have fun!” she added.

Her tweet was in response to a meme shared by Trump Jr. on Instagram on Thursday. The top photo of the meme showed an image of Ocasio-Cortez along with the text: “Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?”

The second photo featured in the meme shows President Trump and a blunt answer: “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”

Trump Jr. captioned the meme that he shared with 1.5 million Instagram followers, saying: “It’s funny cuz it’s true!!!”

Since pulling off this one of this year’s biggest upsets during primary season when she unseated Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.), Ocasio-Cortez has become a top target for many conservative pundits and lawmakers for her policy proposals and democratic socialist views.

The 29-year-old Democrat asked on Twitter on Sunday why she has already come under fire by so many top Republicans despite having yet to take office officially.

“I’m not even sworn in yet. Don’t y’all have jobs to do?” she tweeted on Sunday.

Here’s her response to Donald Trump:

It Has Begun — Dems Hire Money-Laundering Experts To Dig Into Trump’s Financial Ties To Russia: Report

As they prepare to take control of the House of Representatives, Democrats in the Intelligence Committee are hiring money-laundering and forensic accounting experts to investigate Donald Trump’s financial ties to Russia, according to a new report by The Daily Beast.

Citing three sources with knowledge of the matter, the Daily Beast revealed that the panel is hiring experts “to examine unanswered financial questions about Trump and Russia.”

The experts would also work with the Intelligence Panel on all of the topics before the panel, a Democratic source told the Beast.

According to the report, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the likely pick to take over the committee, has signaled his interest in investigating Trump’s relationship to Germany-based Deutsche Bank.

The Beast noted that Deutsche Bank loaned money to Trump at times when other lenders and the president may still owe it money.
