The radically liberal "force" joined forces on Monday to issue an important warning about what will happen if efforts to indict former President Donald Trump are unsuccessful.
"Squad" talks about impeachment
Various members of the "Squad" used social media to remind their supporters of the importance of indicting Trump in the Senate.
“Nobody is above the law, no matter who or what time. Failure to hold those who incite terrorism to overthrow an electoral process that has worked for over 230 years would set a dangerous precedent, ”tweeted Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

The MP Cori Bush (D-MO), who is the newest member of the "Squad", also took part in the action on her own Twitter page.
"The article of impeachment was given to the Senate," she wrote. "You must condemn Donald J. Trump – and the House must make my resolution to investigate and expel the GOP congressmen who sabotaged our democracy and instigated the insurrection."

Ilhan Omar Glockenspiel In
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), one of the leaders of the "Squad", responded to a tweet from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) that read: "Impeachment is the culmination of demolition culture."
"Yes, if you incite and participate in an uprising against the US government you should be canceled, charged, deported and jailed," Omar tweeted in response.

Trump was charged a second time by parliament earlier this month for allegedly instigating the riot in the Capitol before stepping down. Impeachment proceedings are expected to take place in the Senate in the coming weeks.
AOC speaks out
Earlier this month Squad leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) spoke about why she wants Trump to be charged.
“We have to understand that there was an uprising against the United States on Wednesday. That is what Donald J. Trump tried to do, and that is what those who stormed the Capitol looked after, "she said.
"When we talk about healing … the healing process is separate and actually requires accountability," added Ocasio-Cortez. “So if we allow an insurrection against the United States with impunity and unaccountability, we are inviting them to do it again. It's that serious. "
MP Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez endorsed the impeachment, telling @GStephanopoulos that "every minute" Trump "is in office is a clear and present threat."
"We're also talking about the total ban on (Donald Trump) from ever running for office again." https://t.co/k4g6uA7rAo pic.twitter.com/k5nIiWuOtx
