The radically liberal “Squad” teamed up on Monday to issue a major warning about what will happen if the effort to impeach former President Donald Trump is not successful.

Various members of the “Squad” took to social media to remind their followers about how important they feel it is to impeach Trump in the Senate.

“Nobody is above the law, no matter the person or the timing. Failure to hold those who would incite terror on others to overthrow an election process that has worked for over 230 yrs would set a dangerous precedent,” tweeted Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO), who is the newest member of the “Squad,” got in on the action as well on her own Twitter page.

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

“The article of impeachment has been delivered to the Senate,” she wrote. “They need to convict Donald J. Trump — and the House needs to pass my resolution to investigate and expel the GOP members of Congress who sabotaged our democracy and incited the insurrection.”

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) posted a quote from the late Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), writing, “‘When we’re dancing with the angels, the question will be asked…what did we do to make sure we kept our democracy intact?’”

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), one of the leaders of the “Squad,” responded to a tweet by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) that read, “impeachment is the zenith of cancel culture.”

“Yes, inciting and participating in an insurrection against the US government should get you cancelled, impeached, expelled and jailed,” Omar tweeted in response.

Trump was impeached by the House for a second time earlier this month for supposedly inciting the Capitol riots before leaving office. An impeachment trial is expected to happen in the Senate in the coming weeks.

Earlier this month, “Squad” leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) talked about why she wants Trump to be impeached.

“We have to understand that what happened on Wednesday was insurrection against the United States. That is what Donald J. Trump engaged in, and that is what those who stormed the Capitol engaged in,” she said. “When we talk about healing…the process of healing is separate, and, in fact, requires accountability. And so, if we allow insurrection against the United States with impunity, with no accountability, we are inviting it to happen again. That is how serious it is.”
