New York socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has renewed her calls to impeach President Donald Trump, saying there are "so many" reasons why she supports "impeaching this president."

During a Yahoo News “Skullduggery” podcast on Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez declared:

“I think you could reach in a bag and pull so many things out that are impeachable of this president.

"I support impeaching this president.”

When asked on what grounds she believes Trump should be impeached, AOC explained: 

“Number one is emoluments. I think it’s always been emoluments. It’s always been about that for me.”

She continued, “I think two would be tax fraud.”

She added, “I think emoluments kind of includes any misconduct, financial misconduct in relation to Russia.”

Elsewhere in the interview, progressive Democrat Ocasio-Cortez, who worked on Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) 2016 presidential campaign, said that the prospect of former Vice President Joe Biden running for President in 2020 “does not particularly animate me.”

According to Breitbart, Ocasio-Cortez confirmed she will support whichever Democrat wins the presidential primary, now standing at 19 candidates, and offered praise for Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

“I’m very supportive of Bernie’s run… I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” Ocasio-Cortez told hosts Michael Isikoff and Daniel Klaidman.

“I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is… truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational,” the controversial lawmaker added.

When asked about a possible Biden campaign, Ocasio-Cortez replied, “That does not particularly animate me right now.”

“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama, with Obama’s vice president,” the freshman congresswoman added.

“There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”

Biden, who despite having not yet jumped into the White House race, is a top contender in several key battleground states, according to numerous polls.

Pressed on whether she will run for higher office in the future, Ocasio-Cortez admitted that while “I think about it every once in a while, but… this is pretty hard already.”
