Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Ukraine Allegation Is Incredibly Serious’

Wednesday on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told host Chris Cuomo that the momentum toward impeachment of President Trump has accelerated because “this Ukraine allegation is incredibly serious and very urgent.”

“The Judiciary Committee has long been investigating many of the violations of the president, but this Ukraine allegation is head and shoulders one of the most serious and urgent allegations that we have seen come out of this administration to date…” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“What we are talking about here is the president essentially participating in what looks like a series of events that looks like extortion,” she added. “Withholding aid to an ally and then, quote-unquote, asking for a favor to essentially benefit yourself politically, not in the interest of the United States of America, but in the interest of your own reelection.”

There was no “extortion.” Democrat hysteria over this baseless “scandal” stems entirely from their panicked realization that they cannot defeat Trump in 2020.
