Congressman Ted Lieu calls Trump a "clear and present danger" to the U.S.

Congressman Ted Lieu, a Democrat from California, started drafting the article of impeachment against President Trump with Congressman David Cicilline while the two were in lockdown during the assault on Capitol Hill. Lieu joins CBSN to explain why he believes Mr. Trump represents a “clear and present danger” to the democracy of the U.S. and should be removed from office immediately.

  1. I agree he had a good opportunity to lose his supporters but go down in history for doing the right thing in the end by just telling the truth and it'd very much pour water instead of gasoline on the fore he started

  2. We the people petition to remove all Members of Congress and demand term limit of 4 years. You have defied our “Rule of Law” and ignored the will of the citizens of the United States. Your arrogance and complete disregard for our Constitution must be stopped. These offices were created as an HONOR not a Privilege.

  3. Elaine simp here. Elaine is truly a beautiful woman. Trump used Mussolini and Hitler`s handbook these past 4 years to feed lies to our vulnerable citizens. It is truly tragic that there was hat many people that actually believed him. He used his con to spread BS butter. Now with all his failures he failed his Coup and his ultimate failure was just being a human being.

  4. We don't want to be united with domestic terrorists who incited an anarchist breach against the Capital and our Represenitives. We want them charged, isolated, and held as enemy combatants and held indefinitely at Guantanamo Bay Cuba. They stripped themselves of their civil rights by creating an insurrection against America. Impeach Trump, and arrest and charge Trump Jr., Giuliani, Pence, those in the House, and the dirty dozen GOP. Save America from tyranny.

  5. Phoenix Sun
    The “Capital Crisis” is being used exactly the same way as the 1933 Reichstag fire. The domestic terrorist bill is the modern equivalent of the Reichstag fire Decree. We are heading for a world wide holocaust. Most Americans don’t know their history so we are repeating it. They are trying to suppress me and stop me from exposing them. Help spread the word!

  6. For those of you that are Christians
    The quicker these evil Socialists wreck the world super power also known as the USA
    They will hasten the end of days
    Satan is without a doubt the sole driving force behind
    the Democrat party. The Nazis of 1941 and the Nazis of 2021 that have seized our government both parties are/were enemies of Israel
    The Democrat party thrives on anger and hatred. Without those two evils the Democrat party ceases to be relevant.

  7. California was a President Reagan's State, it was Loving, Caring, but now Selfish, Greedy, Homeless cause Democrat leaders like him, Not working with President Trump to help more people, but fighting, hating,against President Trump from beginning, and again Impeachment of the last moment, Soullessness, Immorals, Evis.
    How could they get to be Leaders, cause they must to use fake Ballots, and Computers to steal Votes from Republican Candidates to Democrats and get away, they like Ghosts, you can't see, you can't fight, the Technics they use, and when Elections Nights came, they all win.

  8. They all know they STOLE The
    Election, and Angry cause they afraid The TRUTH.
    Whetherr Republicans, Democrats are doing The Impeachment again to President Trump, Everybody should put them on the List, and remember to VOTE THEM out soon for next Elections, PROMISE.

  9. Ted Lieu is a man who works hard for his country. He knows the law and he uses it for the country he loves. I thoroughly approve of his stand on impeachment. He is a patriot in the deepest sense of the word.
