Nancy Pelosi Calls on Mike Pence to
Remove Donald Trump From Office.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has called
on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment
and remove President Donald Trump from office.
The 25th Amendment would allow Pence
and the Cabinet to declare Trump “unable to discharge
the powers and duties of his office.”.
Doing so would cause Pence to “immediately assume
the powers and duties” of the presidency. .
Pelosi and many other officials
blame Trump for the attempted coup
that took place on Wednesday. .
She called his incitement of violence an
“unspeakable assault” on the United States.
This is urgent, this is an emergency of
the highest magnitude … The president
of the United States incited an armed
insurrection against America … In calling
for this seditious act, the president has
committed an unspeakable assault on
our nation and our people, Nancy Pelosi, via 'The New York Times'.
She went on to describe the chaos at
the Capitol as a day of “horrors” that
would “forever stain” history. .
We are in a very difficult place in our
country as long as Donald Trump sits in the
White House … while there’s only 13 days left,
any day can be a horror show for America, Nancy Pelosi, via 'The Wall Street Journal'
