AOC ON THE NOMINATION OF FORMER CHICAGO MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL AS AMBASSADOR TO JAPAN

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released a statement calling on the Senate to reject Rahm Emanuel’s nomination to the ambassadorship of Japan. The full statement follows.

“This nomination is deeply shameful. As mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel helped cover up the murder of Laquan McDonald – a mere teenager when he was shot 16 times in the back by a Chicago Police Officer. This alone should be flatly disqualifying for any position of public trust, let alone representing the United States as an ambassador. That the Biden administration seeks to reward Emanuel with an ambassadorship is an embarrassment and betrayal of the values we seek to uphold both within our nation and around the world. I urge the Senate to vote NO on his confirmation.”
