A US Democratic Congressman has accused the outgoing President Donald Trump of the most dangerous crime by a president ever committed against the United States.

Iran PressAmerica: After quickly impeaching President Trump last week, Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin on Sunday said only that the article of impeachment will be delivered to the Senate “soon.”

The Maryland Democrat said on CNN’s "State of the Union" that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is still organizing the formal transfer” and it “should be coming up soon.

The House voted 232 to 197 to approve the article of impeachment charging “incitement of an insurrection” against the president last Wednesday — exactly a week after pro-Trump supporters stormed the Capitol.

Ten Republican House members — including GOP Rep. Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney — voted along with the Democrats.

"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," Raskin said. "And there are Republicans who are recognizing it, as well as Democrats."

He suggested that because Democratic and Republican lawmakers were in Congress voting to certify the Electoral College results and experienced the riot first-hand that a prolonged trial in the Senate won’t be needed.

“I guess what I’m saying as if you invade a police headquarters, and you ransack and rampage the place, and you kill officers and people working in the police headquarters, you don’t need a six-month investigation to determine what happened,” he said.

Raskin said despite the timing, Congress cannot create a precedent to let bygones be bygones because Trump has left office.
