"If there are no consequences, if there is no accountability, if there is no justice, then we will have set the precedent that it is OK to accept help from a foreign government, it is OK to obstruct investigation into interference in our election," O'Rourke said while appearing on CNN's "State of the Union. "
The former Democratic congressman also doubled down on his call for impeachment, saying that it is necessary to send a signal about foreign interference in U.S. elections.
"Impeachment is critically important to get to the facts, discover the truth, to make sure there is accountability for the undermining of our democracy, but also to send the signal that this can never happen again. To send a signal to Russia. To send a signal to Donald Trump. To send a signal to this country that we will save this Democracy," he said.
"It is now time for the House of Representatives to act, to look beyond the polls and the prospects of the next election, and look to the future of this country and the generations that follow who are counting on us to do the right thing," he said.
