House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said in a Tuesday press conference that Democrats must impeach President Donald Trump now to stop him from winning the 2020 election.

House Democrats laid out two articles for impeachment against the president on Tuesday, which were abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Neither of the charges included the long-held claims of bribery, extortion or treason.

Schiff said, "The argument, 'why don’t you just wait?' comes down to this: Why don’t you just let him cheat in just one more election? Why not let him have foreign help one more time?"
