Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff, among the lead impeachment managers throughout President Donald Trump’s very first impeachment, contacted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to offer support in the current efforts to get rid of the president from workplace after Wednesday’s Capitol riot.

In an interview with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow Fridady, the congressman stated that McConnell “bear[s] the obligation for whatever dangerous acts this president commits,” if the senator stops or postpones impeachment.

The American people can expect the House will do its duty. And we will move quickly.

However the Senate need to undertake its Constitutional responsibility, too.

” He will bear the responsibility for whatever harmful acts this president dedicates.

Schiff released a statement on Friday, calling for Trump’s impeachment, stating the president would likely be responsible for more acts of violence. Part of his declaration can be found listed below:

” The Congress needs to act to start impeachment proceedings as the only instrument entirely within our power to remove a president who has so manifestly and repeatedly violated the Constitution and put our country at serious risk.

He likewise said that Trump remaining in office was “a threat to the republic,” requiring a quick impeachment.

Newsweek reached out to Schiff’s office and McConnell’s press secretaries for remark.
