WATCH: Beto O’Rourke Vows To Prosecute Trump If He Becomes President!


As Beto O’Rourke grows increasingly insignificant, he’s grasping at straws in a last ditch effort to gain in the polls for the Democrat primaries.

On Sunday, Beto made an appearance on ABC’s “The Week” with George Stephanopoulos, where he was asked to comment on Pelosi’s desire to see Trump put into prison.

The Texan politician (hacker, and poet…) not only agreed that “Trump committed crimes that could be prosecuted” but said that “those crimes might extend beyond what we have seen in the Mueller report.”

When pressed to answer whether he would himself press charges against President Trump, Beto vowed that he would move to prosecute Trump if elected.

Watch the interview here (Beto starts to go off around the 12:43 mark):

Here's a partial transcript of the part of the interview where Beto promises that his administration would prosecute Trump as a criminal despite lack of evidence that he did anything wrong (courtesy of Breitbart):

STEPHANOPOULOS: Even if the House impeaches, the Senate isn’t going to convict the president. If you win in 2020, would you the Justice Department to pursue charges against President Trump?

O’ROURKE: I would want my Justice Department, any future administration’s Justice Department to follow the facts and the truth and to make sure at the end of the day there’s accountability and justice, without this, without that, this idea, this experiment of American democracy comes to a close. We were attacked unlike any other time in our 243-year history and we have a president who yet to acknowledge it and a president who has yet to be brought to justice. Yes, no matter who that is.

The Washington Times commented on Beto O'Rourke's vow, calling it his "last gasp" before he succumbs to the abyss of irrelevance:

Beto O’Rourke, one of the Democratic hopefuls for White House, 2020, landed on a new campaign message these past days, and it goes like this: Vote for me, and I vow to prosecute President Donald Trump to the fullest extent of the law.                                                                                             

Blink.

                                  

He’s gone.

                  

O’Rourke, the guy with all the Vanity Fair love who, for a time in March, stoked Democratic passions with his “born to be in it” insistence about the presidency, and then, fast-forward to this past week in Iowa, when he was introduced as a “blank slate” at a campaign stop — by a supporter, no less — is grabbing at straws.

Tilting at windmills.

Digging nails deep to climb out of a hole that’s filled with a couple of dozen other candidates, all of whom have at various points over the weeks stomped Beto’s gold forehead star.

For the curious of mind, this is the sound of a man gasping for his last political breaths.

                               

On “This Week” on ABC, host George Stephanopoulos asked O’Rourke, as Breitbart reported, “If you win in 2020, would you [order] the Justice Department to pursue charges against President Trump?”

                              

And O’Rourke replied, “I would want my Justice Department, any future administration’s Justice Department, to follow the facts and the truth and to make sure at the end of the day there’s accountability and justice, without this, without that, this idea, this experiment of American democracy comes to a close. We were attacked unlike any other time in our 243-year history and we have a president who has yet to acknowledge it and a president who has yet to be brought to justice. Yes, no matter who that is.”                    

Beto for Jailbars.
