“If the vice president and the Cabinet do not act, the Congress may be prepared to move forward with impeachment,” Pelosi.
Speaker, Nancy Pelosi has called on Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to immediately remove President Donald Trump from office following the deadly riots at the U.S. Capitol.
“If the vice president and the Cabinet do not act, the Congress may be prepared to move forward with impeachment,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi joined a growing number of lawmakers in demanding the end to Trump’s presidency, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, either through the 25th Amendment or impeachment despite Trump having less than two weeks left in office.
Democrats and many Republicans have blamed Trump for inciting his supporters to storm the Capitol Wednesday in a failed effort to block certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
