On Tuesday, the House of Representatives called on Vice President Mike Pence to use the 25th Amendment to declare President Donald Trump unfit from office and remove him from his seat as the commander-in-chief.
The vote took place as things continue to heat up between Democrats and Republicans in the days that have followed the riots at the U.S. Capitol building, which the left is squarely blaming on Trump and GOP lawmakers who supported his claims that the election was being stolen from him through voter fraud.
While the measure did indeed pass, it’s nonbinding and is essentially just the opening for the effort underway to remove Trump from office before January 20.
The House Wednesday will debate and pass an article of impeachment that charges Trump with inciting an insurrection, a reference to the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump protesters that left five people dead, dozens injured, and the Capitol damaged.
“The president instigated this,” Rep. Tom Suozzi, a New York Democrat, said on the House floor, feet away from a glass door that was shattered by protesters attempting to enter the chamber on Jan. 6 and where one of them was shot and killed by police.advertisement — content continues below
Suozzi said there are reports that pro-Trump protesters plan to commit more violent acts in the days leading up to Democrat Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.
“We must together call upon the president to denounce this violence to tell his supporters to stay home,” the New York Democrat said. “Mr. President, you must please put America first. You must call off this attack. If not, you must be removed.”
Members of the GOP lashed out at Democrats over the resolution, stating that it didn’t make any sense to push this out there, especially since Vice President Pence already stated that he did not believe that Trump should be removed from office before his term is up next week.
The radical left is desperate to tarnish and stain the presidency of Donald Trump by any means necessary. One reason for this is because they want to ensure that he doesn’t try to run for president in 2024. Impeachment will certainly accomplish that goal as well.
