Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-Louisiana) was on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday to talk about why President Trump needs to be impeached and to stump for Joe Biden.

In the midst of his convoluted and confusing answer on impeachment, he admitted what it’s all about for Democrats and their “sole focus”:
“I think (impeachment) is the best way to get all of the facts out. I also believe that at some point, we have to hear from this president. Whether he’s lying to us or not, we need to hear from him under oath. But look, my sole focus right now is to make sure that he’s not the president next term, and what we do this term … we need to one, learn from the facts what Russia did, make sure that the president has not obstructed justice, but more importantly, we need to make sure that he does not win reelection. And that’s part of the reason why I’m here is because I’m supporting vice president Joe Biden to beat him.”
This line says it all: “We need to make sure that the president has not obstructed justice, but more importantly, we need to make sure that he does not win reelection.”
What an ignorant objective. I thought he was there for his constituents?🤷♀️ https://t.co/tjGTWQ6hWR

His constituents probably love what he’s doing for them, useless resistance. https://t.co/Fm0uwxlSs1

Not to mention the fact that beyond the obstruction/collusion obsession, he also admitted that Democrats have no interest in working with President Trump to get actual things accomplished.

They didn’t pass a budget.
All they care about is getting Trump out of office through whatever means available.
They can’t decide whether they’re going to be mostly socialist or all-the-way socialist.
This is the Democrat Party in 2019.
