Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) pushed the state of New York to seize former President Donald Trump’s assets in the state if he cannot secure an unprecedented bond while he appeals the civil fraud case against him and his company.

AOC made the remarks about the $464 million bond during a Sunday interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”

“I think Attorney General [Letitia] James has been handling this case with tremendous skill,” AOC said. “It’s ultimately up to her determination, but it is my belief that all people should be treated equally under the law. And if that seizure of assets would be pursued to any other American, then Donald Trump should be treated the same.”

“As far as the political implications go, I think that what we are dealing with politically is the much larger and much more grave and serious pressure of having this judgment against Donald Trump and him being in this degree of debt and the financial pressures that he is under and what he is subject to do in order to obtain those assets, I actually think that there is risk in not seizing these assets and the open window that exists in him trying to secure these funds through other means,” she said.

AOC said, “There is a very real risk of political corruption” in Trump’s attempt to obtain the bond and referenced “interesting transactions” involving his Truth Social platform.


“This is not about party. This is not about politics,” she claimed. “This is about corruption and criminality. We’re talking about an individual who ordered essentially a terrorist attack on the Capitol of the United States in order to retain power. That is not about being a Republican. It is not about being a Democrat.”
