Sen. Chuck Schumer made a call on Thursday morning for Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment and have President Donald Trump removed from office immediately, warning that if he doesn’t do so, Congress should “impeach the president.”
“What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an insurrection against the United States, incited by the president,” Schumer stated. “This president should not hold office one day longer.”
“What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an insurrection against the United States, incited by the president,” Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a statement Thursday. “This president should not hold office one day longer.”
“The quickest and most effective way—it can be done today—to remove this president from office would be for the Vice President to immediately invoke the 25th amendment,” Schumer continued. “If the Vice President and the Cabinet refuse to stand up, Congress should reconvene to impeach the president.”
The 25th Amendment includes a section allowing the vice president and a majority of Cabinet members to declare a president “unable” to perform the job.advertisement — content continues below
An official from within the Trump administration has come out and stated that the vice president has not been involved in any 25th amendment conversations.
Another source inside the administration said that several Cabinet members told him there has not been any discussion of such measures yet.
Rep. Ilhan Omar stated that she was drafting Articles of Impeachment.
“Donald J. Trump should be impeached by the House of Representatives & removed from office by the United States Senate,” Omar posted on Twitter. “We can’t allow him to remain in office, it’s a matter of preserving our Republic and we need to fulfill our oath.”
These folks are trying to finish destroying President Trump’s legacy. Their hatred for this man runs very deep. There’s nothing they wouldn’t do to ruin his good name.
