Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who supports impeaching Trump in light of the Capitol siege, said she believes 'every minute' that he is 'in office represents a clear and present danger'
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she believes President Donald Trump should be impeached because "every minute" he stays in office "represents a clear and present danger" to Congress and the Country.
  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the House would could move to impeach Trump this week if Vice President Mike Pence does not answer the chamber's calls to invoke the 25th amendment.
  • "It is an act of insurrection. It is an act of hostility," Ocasio-Cortez said. "And we must have accountability because without it, it will happen again."
"Our main priority is to ensure the removal of Donald Trump as president of the United States," Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday. "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."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote in a letter obtained by CNN that impeachment proceedings could be set into motion as early as this week if Vice President Mike Pence does not respond to calls to invoke the 25th Amendment, which would allow the vice president and some of Trump's cabinet to depose the president.

In addition to removing the president, Ocasio-Cortez said the House is also considering the "complete barring" of Trump from "running for office ever again" and to prevent him from "pardoning himself from those charges that he was impeached for," she said during the interview.

... "It is an act of insurrection. It is an act of hostility," she said. "And we must have accountability because without it, it will happen again."
