During an appearance on CNN's The Situation Room on Wednesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that the public impeachment hearings are about more than just "something that has occurred."

AOC flat out told host Wolf Blitzer that the hearings were "about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year."

She said, "I think that’s our message, the fact (Trump) undermined national security, that he is trying to undermine an election, he is engaged in flagrant abuse of power should be a concern to all Americans who believe in rule of law in the United States of America."

"We also need to move quite quickly because we’re talking about the potential compromise of the 2020 elections. And so this is not just about something that has occurred; this is about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year."
