Beto O’Rourke: If I Win, I Will Prosecute Donald Trump

Flailing in the polls of late, former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke made a pledge to the extremist liberal voters he’s trying to court – I will prosecute President Trump.

O’Rourke made the promise during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s ‘This Week,’ on Sunday.

Stephanopoulos, the former White House communications director for Bill Clinton of all people, referenced House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent comments that she’d like to see Trump in prison.

“We heard House Speaker Nancy Pelosi say this week, she wants to see the president in prison,” the man who served for the last impeached president began. “Do you think the president committed crimes that could be prosecuted?”

“He did,” O’Rourke responded before ticking off a list of things that Trump has been cleared of, or not charged for, after an extensive investigation by Robert Mueller.

“If you win in 2020, would you [direct] the Justice Department to pursue charges against President Trump?” pressed Stephanopoulos.

“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,” O’Rourke said, seemingly forgetting a vast amount of our nation’s actual 243-year history. “Yes, no matter who that is.”

Why Did He Say It?

Beto knows full-well he has no grounds for which to have the Department of Justice pursue charges against the President.

He made these comments with the same intent of everybody else in the Democrat race for the 2020 nomination who has said ridiculous things in the past – to stand out and earn support from their unhinged base.

A new Iowa poll shows O’Rourke flailing more than his hands, sitting at a mere 2 percent and tied with Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

At a 5K run to celebrate pride month in Des Moines, participants didn’t even know who he was.

Well-Known for Ridiculous Comments

O’Rourke has a history of making wild comments that make him seem at times like a slightly less intelligent version of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Whether he’s declaring illegal immigrants to be slaves held in “modern-day bondage,” pretending Stacey Abrams lost her election in Georgia because of a “rigged system,” comparing the President’s immigration policies to the Third Reich, or insisting the world only has 10 years left to survive if we don’t stop global warming, O’Rourke is a prime example of the effects liberalism can have on one’s brain.

President Trump has consistently ignored O’Rourke, and rightfully so considering his standing in the race. But that hasn’t stopped him from taking an occasional jab.

“I’ve never seen so much hand movement,” the President joked after Robert Francis announced he was running. “I said, ‘Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?'”

Turns out, it’s not an act.

  • Being Nancy's echo is not going to get him very far. And the Mueller report did not prove evidence of any crimes. Take a course in reading comprehension!
