Nancy Pelosi Is Pushing for Second Trump Impeachment

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote in a letter to Democrats on Sunday that, even though Biden’s inauguration is set for January 20, her party will take steps this week in the House to remove President Trump, beginning with a call for Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to declare that the President is unable to successfully discharge the duties of his office. If Republicans block the move, Democrats will vote on the bill on Tuesday and impeachment later this week. Pelosi also asked Democrats for their views on a section of the 14th Amendment, regarding the removal of members who “have engaged in insurrection or rebellion.” Newly elected progressive Representative Cori Bush is introducing a resolution to “expel the members of Congress who tried to overturn the election and incited a white-supremacist coup attempt that has left people dead.” -GEG

Democrats will take steps this week in the House to remove President Donald Trump, beginning with a call for Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25 Amendment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a letter to Democrats on Sunday.

The resolution would call on Pence “to immediately use his powers under section 4 of the 25th Amendment to convene and mobilize the principal officers of the executive departments in the Cabinet to declare what is obvious to a horrified Nation: That the President is unable to successfully discharge the duties and powers of his office.”

If Republicans block the move, Democrats will vote on the bill on Tuesday and impeachment later this week.

“We are calling for the Vice President to respond in 24 hours,” Pelosi wrote, regarding Pence and the 25th Amendment.

Democrats will hold a private caucus call at 2 p.m. ET.
