During a stunning segment on CNN with Jake Tapper, impeachment Manager Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) admitted impeachment is about influencing the 2020 election.
Asked by Jake Tapper why she Democrats didn’t go to court to try to force subpoenas and witnesses, Lofgren replied “if we had waited for three or four years, the election would be over. The issue would be almost moot.”
Congresswoman, you told senators this week ‘Don’t surrender to the president’s stonewalling. But what do you say to those who say, that’s what exactly what the House Democrats did by not going to court to try to force subpoenas and force witnesses?”
We did go to court, as you know
But didn’t you surrender to the president’s stonewalling, in that sense?
Well, in that — I guess, in that sense, we did, because, if we had waited for three or four years, the election would be over. The issue would be almost moot.
Tapper presses House Impeachment Manager Lofgren on Democrats not pursuing witnesses in court (but insisting the Senate should).
Incredible that she doesn’t have a better answer for this. pic.twitter.com/bXfpKPxZuE
