"Trump himself is clearly not satisfied with only one article of impeachment," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

"His choice to publicly broadcast his own, personally authored witness intimidation means he’s wants to sign up for another article on obstruction of justice, too."

During Friday's pubic impeachment hearing that featured Yovanovitch's testimony, Trump, who wasn't present at the hearing, assailed the witness, typing up a punitive tweet about Yovanovitch.

"Everywhere Marie YovanovitchMarie YovanovitchBlinken tells State Department staff 'I have your back' Trump has discussed possible pardons for three eldest children, Kushner: report Former Giuliani associates plead not guilty to new fraud charges MORE went turned bad," he tweeted, adding that "It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors," one of the main points GOP lawmakers have been driving home during the impeachment proceedings.

However, Trump's tweet has been seen by many as witness intimidation, which can be construed as obstruction of justice, both of which are illegal.

Yovanovitch was the third person to testify publicly before the House Intelligence Committee in its inquiry; State Department officials William Taylor and George Kent testified on Wednesday.
