"If we had gotten something from the Mueller report, then I would probably put that up there as number one, but I feel like it's a little risky to put the entire grounds of impeachment- to put all your eggs in that basket, when I think that a lot of this stuff happens through back door bank accounts and stuff like that".

In an interview on Yahoo News' "Skullduggery" podcast, Ocasio-Cortez said of Trump: "I think you could reach in a bag and pull so many things out that are impeachable of this President".

"I think it is certainly on the table. US-Israel ties must supersede politics", the group wrote on Facebook.

Interviewed Sunday on the Yahoo News "Skullduggery" podcast, the freshman Democrat from NY added: "I think that Netanyahu is a Trump-like figure".

"I think so", Ocasio-Cortez responded.

"But I think that we need to expand what those policy conversations are because I would - as just a citizen of this country - I would be very concerned if Trump started really pursuing more and more and more increasingly risky policies, and everyone just standing aside saying this is normal".

"We are pleased Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recognizes she is NOT a leader on Israel in Congress", the statement said. Betty McCollum even has a proposal that she's advanced asking the us not to fund child detention, Israeli child detention of Palestinian children.

She said in the interview that her team still has accounts on Facebook.

A spokeswoman for Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez's office told the Lexington Herald-Leader's Washington Bureau that she does not plan on apologizing. "I grew up with that Yankees dream team, like, [Derek] Jeter, [Jorge] Posada, like, Mariano Rivera", she said. She also compared Netanyahu to US President Donald Trump, suggesting that they both shared the same autocratic tendencies.

Yes, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez watches Game of Thrones - but you already knew that.
