Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knocked the New York Times on Sunday, explaining the paper’s treatment about whether previous Trump administration staffer Hope Hicks would adhere to a subpoena as “Hope’s Option.”

” What gets me is news breaks that this woman is weighing devoting a criminal offense prior to Congress & it’s getting framed by the NYT as some Lifetime drama called ‘Hope’s Option'” the New York Democrat composed on Twitter. “This is a fmr admin official thinking about taking part in a coverup led by the President. Treat her equally.”

The story released Thursday explained Hicks, the former communications director, as one of the “best-known but least noticeable” members of the White Home and stated she dealt with an “existential question” about whether to obey the subpoena.

The Home Judiciary Committee last Tuesday released subpoenas for Hicks and Anne Donaldson, the ex chief of staff for previous White Home counsel Don McGahn to turn over files and affirm next month.

Ocasio-Cortez likewise accompanied Soledad O’Brien, the former CNN anchor and current CEO of Starfish Media Group, to question the image of Hicks published by the Times.

” This is a great example of predisposition in the @nytimes: a photo of an individual who is considering not abiding by a subpoena is essentially a glam shot, and it’s framed as a thoughtful, perfectly equal option,” O’Brien composed on Twitter Sunday.

” Yup. Where’s the ‘no angel’ take now?” Ocasio-Cortez composed in reaction to O’Brien’s tweet.

” In the immediate aftermath of shootings, media regularly post menacing photos of people-of-color victims dredge up any doubtful thing they ‘d ever done,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “But when Hope Hicks thinks about not complying w a subpoena, it’s glamour shot time.”

The article comes as the White House has been defying subpoenas from congressional committee examining the Trump administration.

McGahn blew off a subpoena to affirm before your home Judiciary Committee recently after the Trump administration stated he had “resistance.”

Home Democrats are also considering dates for when the capacity chamber would vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for not committing Congress a full, unredacted variation of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

The New York City Times did not immediately respond to a demand for remark.
