Another person speaks out amid all the political drama surrounding President Donald Trump and essentially releases themselves from the Republican Party, per a report on Washington Examiner.

Colin Powell, who served as secretary of state during former President George W. Bush's administration, says he no longer considers himself a Republican due to his intense opposition to President Trump.

Calling the post-Trump era "a moment for accountability," Powell made the announcement during an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria on Sunday.

"I can no longer call myself a fellow Republican. I'm not a fellow of anything right now," Powell said. "I'm just a citizen who has voted Republican, voted Democrat throughout my entire career, and right now, I'm just watching my country and not concerned with parties."

Powell joined the growing list of politicians calling for Trump's early removal from office, noting that if he were a senator, he would vote to convict on the articles of impeachment the House presented on Monday.
