Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez finally admitted the truth behind the doomed impeachment hearings and it is as we all suspected.
AOC explained that the whole charade was ”not just about something that has occurred, but was about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year.”
It looks like they just want to dirty up President Trump to stave off a huge defeat and in that way, so they may turn off the voters they need to win, rather than win them over.
This is a huge gamble for the Dems and it may backfire and lead to exactly what they are trying to prevent.
“The whole point of the public hearings is to present the facts to the public and let the general public see the facts for themselves and understand why we have chosen to move forward with the impeachment inquiry,” AOC said.
“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.”
“I think right now what Republicans have to do is decide what their role is going to be in the scope of history. We will look back at this time and really truly examine the moral decisions each member of Congress decided to make,” she added.
“I’d like to remind everyone, one of the initial people who brought this conversation of quid pro quo into this conversation was the president. It was when these allegations first came out about Ukraine, he started tweeting and frankly raising the bar saying, ‘No quid pro quo, no quid pro quo.’ It wasn’t Democrats that set that bar, because you don’t need quid pro quo,” she continued.
“He met it, all of that aside, we’re focused on him using the power of the United States government to engage in extortion of a foreign government in order to intervene in our elections. I think that’s our message, the fact he undermined national security, that he is trying to undermine an election, he is engaged in flagrant abuse of power should be a concern to all Americans who believe in rule of law in the United States of America.”
“We also need to move quite quickly because we’re talking about the potential compromise of the 2020 elections. And so this is not just about something that has occurred; this is about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year.”
