The Democrat announced her decision after the full release of Robert Mueller’s report. Although the findings from the report did not incriminate the President, Ms Ocasio-Cortez has concluded that the evidence is enough to impeach him. Following the release of the report, Ms Ocasio-Cortez said: “Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President.

“It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution.

“As such, I’ll be signing onto Rashida Tlaib’s impeachment resolution. “

Ms Ocasio-Cortez comments come following attorney general, William Barr’s controversial release of the redacted version of the Mueller report which has drawn widespread criticism from Democrats.

Although there was no clear collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian interference, Mueller’s investigation led to the indictments of 34 people.

The release of the full report indicated that Trump had tried to get special counsel Mueller removed from the investigation.

In response to the release of the report, Trump’s legal team described the report as a “total victory”.

However, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi responded accusing the Mr Barr of deliberately “distorting” the findings of the report.

She said: “What we’ve learned today is that Attorney General Barr deliberately distorted significant portions of Special Counsel Mueller’s report.

“Special Counsel Mueller’s report paints a disturbing picture of a president who has been weaving a web of deceit, lies and improper behaviour and acting as if the law doesn’t apply to him.”
