Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, whose private office was invaded by “Trump thugs,” has called for using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office immediately, or the Congress may proceed to impeach him.
She said at the Capitol: “The president of the United States incited an armed insurrection against America. While there are only 13 days left, any day can be a horror show for America.”
Pelosi said it’s time for Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment, and she expects to hear whether Pence will move forward with the process as soon as Thursday. Pelosi did not say what timeline the House would move on an impeachment effort.
In the wake of Wednesday’s extraordinary events, Pelosi called on the resignation of the chief of the Capitol Police, Steven Sund. And she announced that the House Sergeant-at-Arms, Paul Irving, has already delivered his intention to resign.The Hill
