Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., claims that Corey Lewandowski's testimony before the House Judiciary Committee "increases the case for impeachment" of President Donald Trump.

Trump's former campaign manager was called into the Democrats' impeachment investigation.

Lewandowski was grilled for hours by the Committee.

In an opening statement, Lewandowski said:

“It is now clear the investigation was populated by many Trump haters who had their own agenda – to try and take down a duly elected president of the United States.

"As for actual collusion or conspiracy, there was none. What there has been, however, is harassment of this president from the day he won the election.”

But the Democrats remain firm on their threat to impeach Trump.

They claim he obstructed justice and conspired with Russia during the 2016 election, despite special Counsel Robert Mueller's office ending the investigation almost six months ago.

"We need to hold people in contempt," Ocasio-Cortez told Fox News.

"We need to hold him accountable."

AOC also added that members of his administration and former campaign staff should also face punishment, singling out Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway.

"In my opinion, they should be thrown in jail ... or fined in a way that would be painful," she said.

Last month, Neon Nettle reported that court documents suggested Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee started their anti-Trump impeachment investigation before special counsel Robert Mueller had even submitted his report on the Russia Probe.

The start date of the probe into President Donald Trump appears to contradict previous statements by committee chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

The White House has firmly pushed back on the impeachment inquiry, blocking oversight requests and declining to produce new documents or allow former aides to testify.

Ocasio-Cortez earlier urged the House of Representatives as a ploy to "stain" Republicans.

"Once the House impeaches, the House has impeached the president. And then that hearing goes to the Senate," she told reporters for MSNBC last week.

"If they want to fail it, then I want to see every Republican go on the record and knowingly vote against impeachment of this president -- knowing his corruption, having it on the record so that they can have that stain on their careers for the rest of their lives, because this is outrageous to protect the amount of lawlessness."

AOC said that the House is also "taking a look" at possible impeachment proceedings against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The lawmaker insisted that Judge Kavanaugh "must be impeached" for lying under oath during his confirmation process, despite the New York Times retracing its story due to it being debunked.
