Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus - and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold.

They also quoted Democrats, such as Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) saying things like this: "I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people".

Lieberman added in the interview the Democrats will lose voters in the long term if Ocasio-Cortez's ideas are endorsed.

Israelis, Palestinians segregated on new highway
The International Court of Justice said in 2004 that the apartheid wall violated international law and urged Israel to remove it. Global law views the entire West Bank as "occupied territory" and considers all Israeli settlement building there to be illegal.

Just over a week after taking office, U.S. Congresswoman and Westchester County high school graduate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is embroiled in a new controversy.

A spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez said he's looking into the matter but declined to comment. They believe the movement behind Ocasio-Cortez to try and help elevate her to a top committee post is undeserved.

Her chief of staff also fired back at House Democratic lawmakers who spoke to Politico about Ocasio-Cortez. "This is basic stuff, especially if you hold yourself out to be the champion of workers".

Ghosn Set For Continued Detention As New Charges Filed
The indictment also alleges that Ghosn used company funds to repay a Saudi acquaintance who put up collateral for the contracts. It said it took the charges filed against the firm "extremely seriously" and was continuing its investigation into the case.

"I think she needs to give herself an opportunity to know her colleagues and to give herself a sense of the chemistry of the body before passing judgment on anyone or anything", Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) said. "She doesn't understand how the place works yet".

The New York representative sought a committee assignment that would allow her to take on big finance, according to a Politico report.

"Just as congressional Republicans constantly withhold criticism of the president out of fear he'll unleash a tweet at them, some Democrats have done the same with Ocasio-Cortez", Politico reported. "But it's a good example of what I'm talking about, a bright shiny new object, came out of nowhere and surprised people when she beat a very experienced congressman", she told CNN in December.
