AOC Contradicts Police Chief, Says ‘No Accident’ in Daunte Wright’s Death

AOC sure knows how to siphon herself some attention from national news stories.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

There are plenty of ways to get attention as an American politician, but not all of them are virtuous or righteous.  In fact, there are plenty of cretins in Congress who seem to embrace the dark side of fame, poking proverbial bears and throwing fuel on figurative fires in an effort to boost their own celebrity, as opposed to working for the constituents who sent them to the Capitol in the first place.

There is little doubt that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fully understands how this fame-game works, and is known to make remarks that garner her headlines.

This week was certainly no exception.

In Twitter posts Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez opposed the argument that Daunte Wright’s shooting death in Minnesota was an “accident,” as police have claimed.

Instead, the New York Democrat claimed the death resulted from “an indefensible system that grants impunity for state violence.”

On Sunday, Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, police Officer Kim Potter mistakenly grabbed her gun instead of a stun gun before she fired at Wright, killing him, police Chief Tim Gannon claimed Monday, citing the sound of an officer’s voice shouting “Taser! Taser! Taser!” on a police video of the incident.

Both Gannon and Potter submitted their resignations Tuesday, police have said.

“Daunte Wright’s killing was not a random, disconnected ‘accident,’” Ocasio-Cortez wrote, “it was the repeated outcome of an indefensible system that grants impunity for state violence, rewards it w/ endlessly growing budgets at the cost of community investment, & targets those who question that order.”

Wright’s death has brought protests and violence to the Minneapolis suburbs and beyond, with a growing number of outside agitators now amassing in Brooklyn Center, including self-described “Antifa” operatives.

Barr and Trump Have ‘Nonexistent’ Relationship as Former AG Squeals to J6 Committee

Uh oh…

Published

on

As the January 6th committee continues to run down its arbitrary list of people who just happened to be anywhere near Donald Trump at any point leading up to the attempted insurrection at the Capitol, new details are coming to light regarding the former President’s personal relationships.

The committee, which is barely trying to hide its hopes of affecting the outcomes of the 2022 and 2024 election, has been spraying subpoenas all over Washington DC in recent weeks.  Their hope appears to be that something will stick, or someone will flip, allowing them to demonize Donald Trump before the coming midterms.  This will give Democrats the ammunition they need to remain competitive in that election.

This week, as former Attorney General Bill Barr continues to cooperate with the committee, a stunning revelation about his relationship with the former President has come to light.

If Donald Trump is hoping for any help during this time of intensifying investigation into the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, he can no longer count on his former attorney general, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman warned Monday.

Asked about any remaining loyalty William Barr may have to his former boss, Haberman told Anderson Cooper on CNN: “They haven’t had a relationship in quite some time. Their relationship is nonexistent.”

One group the former attorney general does have a relationship with is the House select committee investigating the Capitol riot. Barr has been cooperating with the probe.

And that’s not all:

There were “things they agreed on. But there were a number of things they didn’t agree on over time. That began, frankly, long before Election Day,” Haberman added.

Barr, who blasted the former president’s inaction during the riot, has been “very, very clear on where he stands on Trump,” Haberman said. “That’s not something, as we know, that the former president takes very well to.”

ABC News’ Jonathan Karl, who interviewed Barr for his book “Betrayal,” called him a former “ultimate Trump loyalist.” That makes his “potential testimony” even “more powerful,” Karl warned.

He noted that Barr told him he looked carefully into every claim of 2020 presidential election fraud and determined they were “all B.S,” said Karl.

One can only imagine that this is why the committee is so interested in Barr, but refused to seat a number of Trump-loyal GOP lawmakers who wished to participate in the probe:  They are seeking only to reiterate their preconceived notions about the case.
