Watch: Top House Democrat says Trump is a 'clear and present danger' and he expects impeachment
Powerful House Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern (D-MA) says he expects President Donald Trump "will be impeached" and the vote to impeach will be held Wednesday or Thursday.
"I expect that he will be impeached. He will be the first president in history to be impeached twice," McGovern told CNN. "What this president did was unconscionable and he needs to be held to account."

Calling Trump "a clear and present danger to this country," Chairman McGovern called Trump's words "disgusting," and said, "I think the American people would rest better if by the time the sun sets today he were no longer in office."
Democrats are formally introducing one Article of Impeachment today, charging Trump with "incitement of insurrection."
