Socialist New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that efforts to impeach President Donald Trump were about “preventing a potentially disastrous outcome” for the Democrats in the 2020 elections.

But Ocasio-Cortez said she wants House Democrats to “move quite quickly" on preventing 'disaster.'

"We’re talking about the potential compromise of the 2020 elections. This is not just about something that has occurred, about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome next year," she told CNN.

The impeachment hearings Wednesday saw testimony from two witnesses who suggested the president had linked aid to Ukraine and an investigation into alleged misconduct by former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

AOC was asked if Democrats should not incorporate more charges against Trump into the impeachment process:

“You supported impeachment since before you were elected to Congress, you made the case the president could be impeached for profiting off the presidency, for his conduct in the Russia investigation.

"What message, congresswoman, will it send if Democrats don’t incorporate, for example, those issues into the upcoming articles of impeachment?”

AOC replied:

“I think many of those considerations will be taken up by the Judiciary Committee when all of this evidence is brought forth."

"We’ll see … At the end of the day, we have to be able to come together as a caucus. It is this Ukrainian allegation, is what brings the caucus together, I think we have to run with; however, we unify the House,” she added.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who launched the inquiry almost two months ago, said Trump attempted to bribe Ukrainian government officials into probing a political rival.

“The bribe is to grant or withhold military assistance in return for a public statement of a fake investigation into the election," Pelosi said.

“That’s bribery," she concluded.

Pelosi said the first public hearing held on Wednesday showed “a narrative about the president threatening to grant or withhold military assistance to Ukraine, which is in our national interest to do so because they were fighting Russians.”
