Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday called for articles of impeachment against President Trump to be introduced on the House floor following the Capitol riot, insisting he represents a “clear and present danger” and there needs to be “accountability.”
“Our main priority is to ensure the removal of Donald Trump as president of the United States,” Ocasio-Cortez told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos.
“Every minute and every hour that he is in office represents a clear and present danger, not just to the United States Congress but frankly to the country.”
The New York Democrat argued the move would ensure that Trump would be on the presidential ticket in 2024 — or ever again.
“We’re also talking about complete barring of the president — or rather of Donald Trump — from running for office ever again. And in addition to that the potential ability to prevent pardoning himself from those charges that he was impeached for,” she said.
