Rep. Eric Swalwell, who is campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination, rejected the idea that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has dismissed the idea of impeaching President Donald Trump, and predicted he'll be removed from office before being elected to serve a second term.

"She's saying, do it right," the California lawmaker told CNN's "New Day." "Let's not take it off the table. If you contrast with reaching a conclusion without evidence, I can see how you'd say, why aren't they moving that fast? We don't move like that. We still believe in a rule of law and an order of things. We're going to get this right."

Further, Swalwell said he's "confident" that Trump will be removed from office, whether it's by Congress or by voters in November 2020.

"We're near the end of Donald Trump," Swalwell said, adding that he thinks "we're on that road" toward his impeachment.

Meanwhile, there are still many steps that remain before proceedings could start, he acknowledged, but he does think Trump must be "held accountable," because if he isn't, the standard for future presidents will be lowered.

"The first is to get the full [Robert] Mueller report," said Swalwell. "About an eighth is redacted. Second is having Mueller testify...of course, there is Don McGahn and other witnesses who will need to supplement [his testimony.]

Swalwell also spoke out about points presented by several candidates participating in Monday night's series of town halls on CNN, especially on Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who argued in favor of allowing prisoners the vote.
