Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) told CNN’s Manu Raju that they “have the numbers to pass” the articles of impeachment against President Trump. Cicilline drafted the articles along with Reps. Ted Lieu, Jamie Raskin, and House Judiciary staff.
Cicilline told Manu Monday that he expected they’ll “have Republican support,” to impeach President Trump after Trump spurred supporters to storm the Capitol last Wednesday, though he did not expect Republican co-sponsors.
Cicilline also told Manu he expects a vote Wednesday, but that it’s House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s call.
Pressed by reporters on the timeline, Cicilline said, “I think it’s urgent that the President be removed immediately,” warning that, so long as he remains in office, Trump represents “a clear and present danger.”
