Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) admitted during a Wednesday night interview on CNN that impeachment was about unifying the different factions of the Democrat Party and “preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year.”
Ocasio-Cortez joined CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room” where she made the remarks shortly after the Democrats kicked off their public impeachment inquiry hearings on the House Intelligence Committee.

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