Following President Donald Trump's tweet calling out former U.S. ambassador to the Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded, saying Republicans were “beclowning themselves” trying to defend the president.

Speaking on Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” AOC took a swipe at the Republican counsel.

Host Chris Hayes said:

“It’s not surprising the president did that.”

Ocasio-Cortez replied:

“No, not surprising at all. I’m sure, and it certainly seemed my Republican colleagues were scrambling after he sent out those tweets trying to provide some kind of cover."

"I mean, it’s — they’re really beclowning themselves at this point trying to find a way to somehow preserve their careers and futures while protecting this president, and they’re going with the latter.”

On Friday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) accused Trump of engaging in "witness intimidation in real-time."

Schiff, who is leading the proceedings, claimed that the president was "intimidating" his witness, former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, by "attacking" her on Twitter while she was testifying, even though Schiff was the one informing her she was being "attacked."

Sen. Ted Cruz slammed Schiff's claim by tweeting at former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

"This may be the single most ridiculous claim of the Dem show trial."

"No, the President’s tweeting is not 'witness intimidation,'" he said.

"You may not like the tone of some or even many of his tweets, but it’s absurd to suggest that tweeting is an impeachable 'high Crime [or] Misdemeanor.'"

Earlier this week, Ocasio-Cortez admitted that efforts to impeach Trump were about “preventing a potentially disastrous outcome” for the Democrats in the 2020 elections.

"We’re talking about the potential compromise of the 2020 elections. This is not just about something that has occurred, about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome next year," she told CNN.
