The comments on Sunday from Raskin come just days after the House moved to impeach Trump for a second time, this time charging the President with inciting a violent mob that stormed the US Capitol, an offense Raskin described as uniquely dangerous.

"This was the most serious presidential crime in the history of the United States of America. The most dangerous crime by a president ever committed against the United States," he told Tapper.

The congressman also said that House Democrats will transmit the article of impeachment to the Senate "soon," an action that will eventually result in the start of Trump's impeachment trial.

"I know that (House Speaker Nancy Pelosi) also considers the President a clear and present danger to the republic," Raskin said.
