Remember how AOC bashed her fellow Democrats for not impeaching Trump just DAYS before the formal impeachment inquiry into Trump for the Ukraine call was launched by Pelosi?
Well, now that AOC has gotten her wish and the (albeit futile) attempt to impeach Trump is underway, the “young bartender” is “over it.”
Speaking at a town hall, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called the impeachment effort “boring” and added “he should have been impeached a long time ago.”
For reference, here's AOC's tweet that many have speculated triggered Pelosi - who has feuded with Ocasio-Cortez in the past - to start the impeachment attempt:
What do you think?
Was AOC's sudden change of drive for impeachment intentional?
Does she know it's not gonna work?
Breitbart has more to say on AOC's deeming of the Trump impeachment inquiry as "boring":
Ocasio-Cortez held a town hall at the Queens Public Library on Thursday and told her constituents that she finds the impeachment inquiry process “boring.”
“I think the whole thing is boring,” she said, according to the Washington Examiner. “He should have been impeached a long time ago. I’m over it. And so that’s how I feel about it because we’ve got work to do.”
The socialist lawmaker – who pushed for Trump’s impeachment prior to taking office – told attendees that impeaching the president is the “short-term action” needed to “preserve our democracy.”
“Impeachment of this president is the short-term action we need to preserve our democracy,” she said.
“But if we are really going to thrive as a country, we need to make long-term investments and keep our eyes on the prize of social and economic and racial justice in the United States of America,” she added. “And that’s what this is all about.”
Ocasio-Cortez dismissed critics of House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), who knew of the “whistleblower” complaint days before it was formally filed.
“All of this is in complete compliance with whistleblower laws, and there’s nothing out of the norm from that,” she said.
The Washington Examiner also said:
Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told constituents at a town hall that she was tired of her party's current efforts to impeach President Trump, saying it's only the first step in a broader societal overhaul.
“I think the whole thing is boring," Ocasio-Cortez, 29, said Thursday at the Queens Library event. "He should have been impeached a long time ago. I'm over it. And so that's how I feel about it because we've got work to do.”
Ocasio-Cortez is a breakout star of the House Democratic freshman class, which helped give the party its first majority in eight years. She got to Congress by beating a member of the House Democratic leadership in her 2018 primary challenge.
She's been a forceful advocate of impeaching Trump, long before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave her blessing to an impeachment inquiry effort over the president's interactions with Ukraine's leaders, which critics say aimed to use government resources to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.
The National Review added:
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., NY) told supporters during a town hall in Queens on Thursday that impeachment proceedings against President Trump were “boring” and distracted from the goal of “social and economic and racial justice in the United States of America.”
“He should have been impeached a long time ago. I’m over it. And so that’s how I feel about it because we’ve got work to do,” she said, before going on to argue that “impeachment of this president is the short-term action we need to preserve our democracy, but if we are really going to thrive as a country, we need to make long-term investments.”
Ocasio-Cortez, who has long been an advocate of impeaching the president, also pushed back against allegations of misconduct by House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), who apparently learned of the whistleblower complaint before it was filed, according to a New York Times report.
“All of this is in complete compliance with whistleblower laws, and there’s nothing out of the norm from that,” she said. “This whistleblower followed all of the laws and protocols that we have established for whistleblowing and followed all the proper channels. The threat was vetted. It was passed on by the inspector general.”
