Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tore into the House GOP’s impeachment inquiry of Joe Biden

In what was expected to be a critical moment in their push for impeachment against President Biden, the MAGA Republicans held a hearing that ultimately fell flat.

The purpose of the hearing was to gather evidence and testimonies that would support their claims of wrongdoing by the president. However, as AOC astutely pointed out, none of the witnesses called by the Republicans had any firsthand knowledge of the alleged misconduct.

The 33-year-old congresswoman also denounced the hearing after committee Republicans blocked motions to subpoena Rudy Giuliani and Lev Parnas, which would have compelled them to give testimony.

During the hearing, Ocasio-Cortez and other House Democrats got all the witnesses to admit they had no direct involvement or personal information regarding the claims against President Biden. This revelation led the Democrat from New York to conclude that the entire GOP effort was an "embarrassment."

"We are wasting our time," the congresswoman told the House. "This is an embarrassment ... an embarrassment to the time and people of this country," she added.

The New York representative also noted that only the four witnesses before the oversight committee were under oath, while the lawmakers on the panel could say what they wanted — including lies.

"And I would ask that the chair and I would ask that this committee elevate to the promise of our duties here and comport ourselves with the consistency and practice that is required of our seats and our duty and our oath to our responsibilities here."

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy announced the Biden impeachment inquiry on September 12 after being pressured by the MAGA wing of the party, such as Matt Gaetz of Florida and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.

However, even after the Speaker announced the inquiry, Gaetz still attacked McCarthy, telling Fox News, "If Kevin McCarthy was actually serious about pursuing the Bidens, he would have sent Hunter Biden a subpoena by now. That's how you know this is sort of failure theater that you're observing."
