The impeachment of Donald Trump is supposed to be about removing a corrupt president, right?
Wrong. According to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), this is actually about making sure Trump does not get re-elected to the Oval Office.
According to the Daily Wire, Ocasio-Cortez did an interview on CNN Wednesday night after the first day of impeachment hearings.
While appearing with Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room, the New York congresswoman spilled the beans on something Democrats probably wish she would have kept on the down-low.
“We also need to move quite quickly because we’re talking about the potential compromise of the 2020 elections,” she said. She went on to state that the impeachment is really about “preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year.”
She added: “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’s comments are especially jarring because just last week, she excoriated Republicans for attempting to “make a spectacle and a circus out of this entire proceeding.”
Democrats are pretending this impeachment is about possible election corruption and the alleged quid pro quo with Ukraine. But that is just a very creative front created by Democrats to hide the real reason they want this impeachment to take place.
The Democratic Party knows that with the slate of candidates they currently have, there simply is no way they can beat Donald Trump. The internet is exploding with damning reports about Joe Biden and his allegations of abuse of power.
The surface has barely been scratched on this particular issue, and Democrats’ greatest fear is that Joe Biden wins the nomination then gets exposed for his corrupt behavior or possible criminal behavior by his son that he helped facilitate.
Either way, it will be the end of Biden. Hillary Clinton even publicly admitted that party members are putting extreme pressure on her to run. And if Hillary is your emergency candidate, you are in pretty bad shape.
Just as Ocasio-Cortez stated, the “real” reason Trump is being impeached is to ensure Democrats don’t have to face off against him in 2020 — because they know they simply do not have a chance in a fair fight.
