AOC Makes Unexpected Remark in Helping Matt Gaetz We'll 'Cross That Bridge When We Get to It

Far-left Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) made am unexpected comment regarding Matt Gaetz and his efforts to remove Kevin McCarthy from House leadership during an interview on Sunday.

AOC was asked by CBS News’s Face the Nation anchor Margaret Brennan about the possibility of helping Matt Gaetz vote McCarthy out of leadership.

“We would have to cross that bridge when we get to it. Speaker McCarthy has been very weak,” the New York Democratic-Socialist replied.

“I think that he has also engaged in just absolutely terrible decision making for the American people from continuing to try to cement denying the right to an abortion among women, to the denial of to a policy that denies the reality of climate change, to basic fiscal irresponsibility and recklessness,” she said.

The congresswoman continued:

“We are at the brink of a shutdown right now.”

“And so absolutely, I think there is grounds,” she said.

“However, we are also in the midst of an extremely chaotic Republican Party, and we do not want chaos to reign in Washington either,” AOC added.

“I think that is a bridge that we’d cross if we get to it,” AOC said in regard to helping Matt Gaetz.

Maxine Waters has already said she won’t try to save McCarthy if it came to a vote.

Watch

During McCarthy’s bid to become Speaker, Gaetz was key in forcing him into certain concessions.

Last week, Gaetz said McCarthy was “out of compliance” by pushing for a stopgap spending measure.

Gaetz promised to begin every day in Congress with “the prayer, the pledge, and the motion to vacate” if McCarthy did not back down.

“Mr. Speaker, dust off our written January agreement. You have a copy,” Gaetz said in a statement earlier this month.

“Begin to comply. No continuing resolutions, individual spending bills or bust votes on balanced budgets and term limits, subpoenas for Hunter Biden and the members of the Biden family who’ve been grifting off of this country, and the impeachment for Joe Biden that he so richly deserves,” Gaetz added.

“Do these things or face a motion to vacate the chair,” he continued.

On Monday, Gaetz asserted that the shutdown politics had favored the “special interests” trying to sway House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.

“The Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill was passed out of the Appropriations Committee in June, and yet Kevin McCarthy hasn’t put it on the floor in more than 100 days,” Gaetz said.

“That is not serious,” he continued.

“And you know why Kevin McCarthy didn’t move our border appropriations bill?” he asked.

“Because the lobbyists and the special interests who own Kevin McCarthy want to put us in this position, where we’re backed up against the wall, facing shutdown politics,” Gatez said.

“And what that does is it centralizes power to the people that they buy off with PAC donations and lobbyist donations,” he added.

“And then the membership doesn’t get to make real contributions to that process,” he said.

“I’m trying to democratize it.”

Last week, five Republicans joined Democrats in voting against the defense appropriations bill, which failed 212-216.

The five conservatives pushed for more spending cuts.

CNN chief congressional correspondent Manu Raju posted:

“Gaetz just told his conference that seven Rs would vote against any CR to keep government open.”

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
