Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), a self-declared proponent of “democratic socialism,” took pride Tuesday in questioning Wells Fargo CEO Timothy Sloan about the bank’s role in financing private projects that she considers objectionable, such as oil pipelines and prisons.

She also demanded to know why the bank should not be held financially liable for the impacts of oil spills — and even the effects of climate change.
