The freshman lawmaker asked Michael Cohen some pointed questions about the president’s finances.
Nice job by @AOC establishing that it’s essential for the Committee’s to take testimony from Trump Org’s Allen Weisselberg & to review the President’s tax returns to complete its oversight responsibilities.

.@AOC just got there and she is asking better questions than 90% of members. Short, specific, factual, with no speechmaking. (Maybe it's because she just got there.)

.@AOC just got Cohen to admit Trump was involved with some kind of insurance fraud, tax fraud regarding his golf courses and public funding, and got Cohen to agree that Congress should review Trump’s tax returns and financial records. This is why the GOP’s truly terrified of her.

Notwithstanding the hype, the fact is that @AOC knows how to ask questions at a hearing, which a lot of other members don't. She just successfully laid the predicate for issuing subpoenas to several more witnesses & seeking Trump's taxes.
