AOC Claims Trump Ordered A Terrorist Attack On The U.S.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed that former President Donald Trump ordered a terrorist attack on the United States Capitol while she made a case for the seizure of his assets if he does not post the $464 million bond placed on him in his civil fraud case in New York.

Speaking during an interview with Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union,” she said, “I think Attorney General [Letitia] James has been handling this case with tremendous skill. It’s ultimately up to her determination, but it is my belief that all people should be treated equally under the law. And if that seizure of assets would be pursued to any other American, then Donald Trump should be treated the same.”

“As far as the political implications go, I think that what we are dealing with politically is the much larger and much more grave and serious pressure of having this judgment against Donald Trump and him being in this degree of debt and the financial pressures that he is under and what he is subject to do in order to obtain those assets, I actually think that there is risk in not seizing these assets and the open window that exists in him trying to secure these funds through other means,” she added.

Going on to the “terrorist attack” claims, Ocasio-Cortez said, “This is not about party. This is not about politics. This is about corruption and criminality. We’re talking about an individual who ordered essentially a terrorist attack on the Capitol of the United States in order to retain power. That is not about being a Republican. It is not about being a Democrat.”

Trump has a Monday deadline to pay the bond. If he fails to meet up with the deadline, New York Attorney General Letitia James is prepared to seize his property and assets.

Ocasio-Cortez made it clear last week that she has no sympathy for the GOP presumptive nominee as he tries to come up with the appeal bond. Speaking to Fox News, she said, “He’s broke, and he’s willing to sell the country for a dollar in order to make whatever he needs for himself.”
