Socialist Darling Cortez May Face Ethics Investigation For Threatening Don Trump Jr

The left is newly empowered and they are letting it all go straight to their heads and if their early performance hints at what is to come they are in for a rude awakening.

We do have laws – as Michael Cohen is finding out. One of Mueller’s comments in his sentencing memo was that he used his position as a lawyer to threaten and try to muzzle the press.

A big no-no – you cannot use positions of authority and wield them like a cudgel over the less powerful.

Which is just what Democratic Socialist Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did to Don Trump Jr. and now she faces a possible ethics investigations.

From The Daily Caller: Commenters online are calling for an ethics investigation into Democratic Socialist Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after she threatened Donald Trump Jr. for posting a meme making fun of her.

Donald Trump Jr. shared a meme that featured Ocasio-Cortez on his Instagram that claimed the policies of socialism will cause Americans to eat their dogs.

The meme shows two images: one of Ocasio-Cortez with the text, “Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?” and another image beneath Ocasio-Cortez of President Donald Trump with an overlay of text saying, “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”

In response to a Washington Post write up of the meme, Ocasio-Cortez threatened to use the “subpoena power” of Congress against Trump Jr.

“I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” Ocasio-Cortez said, “Please, keep it coming Jr [sic] — 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.”
