We can always depend on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez to say something she was not supposed to say.
This week, she did just that when she accidentally told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer the real reason Democrats are trying to impeach Trump.
The Whoops Moment
Ask a Democrat, and most will tell you the reason they want Trump impeached is that he is a racist, corrupt president that demanded political favors from another government.
When AOC addressed that issue, though, she made it pretty clear it is because the House is trying to make sure Trump is not re-elected.
AOC stated, “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.
“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.”

The “disastrous outcome” she is speaking about is Donald Trump being elected in 2020 and holding the White House for another four years.
Lies, Lies, and More Lies
What you just heard from AOC is far different from what she said only last week during an interview with ABC.
When asked if Hunter Biden was an appropriate witness during the impeachment hearings, AOC responded, “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.
“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.
“Republicans are turning this into a partisan issue.
“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.”
Nobody is trying to detract from what Donald Trump said, however, the Democrats are trying to change the context of his words.
While Democrats say Trump was asking for a favor that would benefit him politically, the fact of the matter is that he is trying to answer a question for conservatives like myself in that we want to know of Joe Biden is corrupt and/or if he wielded his power and influence to help his son.
Trump asked for a favor, nobody is even questioning that, but he did not threaten Ukraine if they did not grant his wish.
We know this because of the transcript and the fact the aid was released and the White House meeting has already taken place, yet there has been no announcement by Ukraine about an investigation.
This impeachment is going to crash and burn and because of that, Democrats are actually making Trump more electable, completely the opposite outcome Democrats were hoping for in this witch hunt.
