AOC: Impeachment Is About Preventing a ‘Potentially Disastrous Outcome’ in 2020

As the House Republicans defend President Donald Trump amid the ongoing impeachment probe, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) may have just given them more ammunition to try to discredit the inquiry.

In an interview on CNN Wednesday night, Ocasio-Cortez was speaking about impeachment when stated that the goal is to prevent “a potentially disastrous outcome” from happening in next year’s presidential election.

“We all need to move quite quickly because we’re talking about the potential compromise of the 2020 election. And so this is not just about something that has occurred, this about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year.”

Watch her comments below:

Republicans have used comments by other House Democrats, such as those made by Rep. Al Green (Texas) who said in an MSNBC interview in May that he is “concerned if we don’t impeach this president, he will get re-elected,” to argue that impeachment is politically motivated.

During the first open hearings in the impeachment probe, Republicans printed Green’s comments on signs situated behind them.

Conservatives jumped on Ocasio-Cortez’s comments on Twitter to claim that Democrats are using impeachment to hurt Trump’s election chances.

On Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez accused Republicans of “turning this into a partisan issue.”

For starters, she should be doing her best to improve her chances of getting re-elected. I’m sure her constituents are wondering about her abilities. (chasing Amazon out New York, thus losing thousands of potential jobs) Smart?
