Warren and AOC have questions about Steve Mnuchin’s role in Sears’ collapse (and they have receipts)

Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are teaming up to ask important questions about Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s role in the collapse of retail empire Sears. More than 175,000 Sears employees lost their jobs while a handful of billionaires, including Mnuchin, walked away with billions. And Warren and Ocasio-Cortez want answers.

Mnuchin and his old pals sucked everything out of the company and left employees high and dry, without even a penny of severance pay. This is happening across the nation as investment firms buy up, raid, and tear down retail outlets. 

Ted Cruz tries his best to mock Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — and hilariously fails

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used the expensive pastry to make a point that even as prices soar on a variety of goods, raising the minimum wage remains mired in controversy. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) pounced on her tweet, trying to make her appear out of touch and spoiled — entirely missing her point about the need for a living wage.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tells Trump Jr. to ‘get out’ if he ‘can’t stand the heat’

INTRO:

New progressive champion Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke to Anderson Cooper during Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” and actually apologized if the president was hurt by her insults. 

“If he felt genuinely threatened by me, then I apologize,” she said. “But I think that frankly, it’s any legal advice that anyone would give him.”

Ocasio-Cortez noted that Trump should probably not come on the attack against those in Congress because they now have subpoena power over him. 

Cooper reminded her that most politicians don’t apologize, but Ocasio-Cortez said she doesn’t mind breaking all of the rules.
