The de facto leader of the Democratic party has joined the chorus of those demanding that President Trump be impeached and with such an influential voice, the lynch mob may be unstoppable.
Freshman bomb-thrower Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez jumped onboard the runaway impeachment train with a call to arms to her worshipful Twitter followers over the latest ridiculous ginned-up scandal.
AOC like the other loons in the Democrat-controlled House ready to rumble over an investigation into Trump’s golf course in Scotland and the assertion that the military is using the Turnberry resort outside Glasgow as a pit stop.
The shrill socialist demagogue tweeted out an “exclusive” story by a Politico-MSNBC reporter trumpeting a House Oversight Committee investigation into a tip (once again anonymous) from “Air Force” personnel who blew the whistle that led to a “previously undisclosed” probe into Trump.

According to the mouth that never shuts:
The President is corrupt and must be impeached.
The “previously undisclosed” investigation is being led by Rep. Elijah Cummings who has spent more time in Washington scheming to overturn the last election and rig the next one than tending to the misery of his constituents who are trapped in rat and rodent-infested squalor in his crime-ridden home district.
One crew member was so struck by the choice of hotel—markedly different than the Marriotts and Hiltons the 176th maintenance squadron is used to—that he texted someone close to him and said the crew’s per diem allowance wasn’t enough to cover food and drinks at the ritzy resort.

More from Politico, “Air Force crew made an odd stop on a routine trip: Trump’s Scottish resort”:
In early Spring of this year, an Air National Guard crew made a routine trip from the U.S. to Kuwait to deliver supplies.
What wasn’t routine was where the crew stopped along the way: President Donald Trump’s Turnberry resort, about 50 miles outside Glasgow, Scotland.
Since April, the House Oversight Committee has been investigating why the crew on the C-17 military transport plane made the unusual stay — both en route to the Middle East and on the way back — at the luxury waterside resort, according to several people familiar with the incident. But they have yet to receive any answers from the Pentagon.
The inquiry is part of a broader, previously unreported probe into U.S. military expenditures at and around the Trump property in Scotland. According to a letter the panel sent to the Pentagon in June, the military has spent $11 million on fuel at the Prestwick Airport — the closest airport to Trump Turnberry — since October 2017, fuel that would be cheaper if purchased at a U.S. military base. The letter also cites a Guardian report that the airport provided cut-rate rooms and free rounds of golf at Turnberry for U.S. military members.
Taken together, the incidents raise the possibility that the military has helped keep Trump’s Turnberry resort afloat — the property lost $4.5 million in 2017, but revenue went up $3 million in 2018.
It’s a story that will generate much hysteria with a dishonest activist media who have been forlorn since Robert Mueller’s ballyhooed congressional testimony in July killed the great Russia collusion hoax but it has the distinct aroma of yet another nothingburger.
The timing of the bratty freshman’s demand for impeachment comes just in time for the end of the House’s extended taxpayer-subsidized vacation and will mesh nicely with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s formal opening of impeachment this week.
The corpulent congressman and longtime enemy of Trump from back in the days when the billionaire mocked him as “Fat Jerry” will likely be basing the impeachment on the obscure and rarely unenforced Emoluments Clause and the golf course witch hunt will mesh nicely with that.
Whether Nadler is able to sell this malarkey to the larger public let alone the GOP-controlled Senate is yet unknown but with Ocasio-Cortez on his side, he has the legions of low-information social media zombies locked down.
Never has one woman made it so cool to be stupid and her following grows by the day.
