(CNSNews.com) - House Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff (D.-Calif.) told the Senate during the impeachment proceedings on Wednesday that it must remove President Donald Trump from office and not allow him to run for re-election.

If the Senate allows Trump to run for re-election, Schiff insisted that we could not know if the election was “fairly won.

“Instead, we are here today to consider a much more grave matter, and that is an attempt to use the powers of the presidency to cheat in an election,” Schiff told the Senate.

“For precisely this reason,” Schiff said, “the president's misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.”

Later in his presentation, Schiff repeated this point.

“A president this unapologetic, this lawless, this unbound to the Constitution and the oath of office," said Schiff, "must be removed from that office lest he continue to use the vast presidential powers at his disposal to seek advantage in the next election.”
