Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) accidentally let loose the truth. She admitted during a Wednesday night interview on CNN that impeachment was about unifying the different factions of the Democrat Party and “preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year.” Their field for 2020 is so weak that if they don’t bring Trump down politically they are going to get royally stomped and they know it.
Ocasio-Cortez joined CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room” where she made the remarks shortly after the Democrats commenced their public impeachment inquiry hearings on the House Intelligence Committee. “At the end of the day, we have to be able to come together as a caucus and if it is this Ukrainian allegation that is what brings the caucus together, um, then I think we have to run with however we unify the House,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
“We also need to move quite quickly because we’re talking about the potential compromise of the 2020 elections,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “And so this is not just about something that has occurred; this is about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year.” And there it is…
From The Daily Wire:
“Ocasio-Cortez’s stunning admission that the impeachment inquiry is about Democrat partisan politics flies in the face of what she said over the weekend in an interview with ABC News where she said it was the Republicans who were making impeachment a partisan issue.
“Congresswoman, I do want to ask you, we had some news that broke earlier today. Your Republican colleagues announced that they intend to call on Hunter Biden as a witness in this impeachment probe. Is he an appropriate witness?” ABC News asked.
“No, I don’t think he’s an appropriate witness, and not only that, but I think that the reason they’re calling for these witnesses, these new witnesses, is because they want to make a spectacle and a circus out of this entire proceeding,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “They want to distract the American people from the very words that Donald Trump uttered from his mouth in that call with Ukrainian officials trying to extort a foreign government into intervening into the United States elections.”
“And, in fact, these witnesses that they’re calling are politically motivated,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, again apparently unaware of the fact that impeachment is a political event. “Republicans are turning this into a partisan issue.

“Ocasio-Cortez concluded, “We need to protect the rule of law in the United States of America, and they’re imperiling it by trying to turn this into a sideshow, and it’s undignified and it’s wrong.”
“During a portion of Ocasio-Cortez’s Wednesday interview on CNN, Ocasio-Cortez claimed, “What we heard today was astounding and devastating news for the president and anyone in the administration, really partaking. Frankly, this is devastating for the country. Our national security has been compromised, our elections potentially compromised.”
“Former independent counsel Ken Starr, whose criminal investigation of former Democrat President Bill Clinton ended with Clinton’s impeachment, told Fox News after the hearing that there was “no hope for impeachment” and that “no crime was proven today.”
“And to me, here was something that was very telling: No crime was proven today,” Starr added. “There were a lot terms used, extortion and bribery, but no crime. This is very unlike Nixon and unlike Clinton.”’
So – wait – who is it that is using the power of government for political purposes? https://t.co/ivPpSPqkBB

The politically inexperienced dunderhead AOC accidentally let the cat out of the bag. Just wow. I suspect she’s too dense to realize she gave it all away. The left cannot be happy about this slip.
These impeachment hearings are very much designed to try and compromise the 2020 elections. Talk about election interference… that’s what Democrats do and what they have planned all along.
If the freaking losers on the left gave him a chance to preside, things would be a whole lot better. They created this mess & can’t self correct. They are too far gone to the point where this dipshit speaks for them
Trump is going roll them in 2020!!

Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said impeachment is unifying the GOP caucus. Jordan provided some vigorous questioning on Wednesday, grilling Acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor about how he could maintain there was a link between aid to Ukraine and a Biden investigation when he said there was no evidence for that contention.
Jordan is right – this is unifying the Republicans and ensuring that Trump will be reelected. It’s the opposite of what the left intended. Bring on the 2020 disaster.
So it’s not about crimes and misdemeanors? It’s to unite the @DNC ?

"Disastrous outcome" Does she mean a free election where the people of all the states choose who they want representing them instead of the coastal elitists?

So, she’s admitting this is all just a farce, hoping to keep the president from being re-elected? Because, she knows that none of the Democrats, running against him, can beat him.

Well isn’t that nice of them to think for us and to wipe our noses and then wipe our behinds because we didn’t know who we wanted in office when we elected the president? They know so much more than we do. SMH. So it’s not about a crime; they just don’t like him.
