“If that is not impeachable conduct, I don’t know what is,” McGovern said.

“No one should be allowed to use the powers of the presidency to undermine our elections or cheat in a campaign, no matter who it is and no matter what their party,” he added.

The House Rules Committee met Tuesday to determine the rules that will govern the full House vote on the articles of impeachment against Trump. The two articles charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The House vote is slated for Wednesday.
