AOC Says Impeachment is Necessary for Democrats to Win in 2020
Washington, D.C.: Less than a week after accusing Republicans of making impeachment a “partisan issue,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez admitted on CNN that’s exactly what Democrats are doing. “We have to be able to come together as a caucus,” she said, “and if it is this Ukrainian allegation that is what brings the caucus together, then I think we have to run with however we unify the House…. This is not just something that has occurred; this is about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year.”
“Democrats’ blatant politicization of the impeachment process is despicable,” responded Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “Impeachment is a very solemn congressional duty and a constitutional tool. It’s not about liking or disliking the administration’s policies. Democrats are plainly admitting that this impeachment will unify their caucus and help them beat Trump in 2020.
“Every American should be outraged at this gross misuse of Congress to pursue political plunder. Democrats will stop at nothing to halt Trump’s America First agenda. The impeachment is a sham, a political dog and pony show. Every voting American must know this — it’s truly the only fact of this impeachment.”
