US Capitol riot: Pelosi calls for Trump’s removal through 25th Amendment after Capitol chaos | FULL

10 Jan 2021

In the wake of chaos at the U.S. Capitol, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is calling for President Donald Trump‘s removal from office through the 25th Amendment.

Pelosi has called on Vice-President Mike Pence to invoke the amendment, and should he not, Pelosi said her caucus will move forward and seek to impeach the president less than two weeks before his term is set to expire.

The 25th Amendment says the vice-president and a majority of principal officers of the executive departments “or of such other body as Congress” can provide a declaration to Congress that the president “is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” At that point, the vice-president would immediately assume the powers of acting president.

Pelosi's briefing comes amid calls from some lawmakers, including Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, for Trump's removal from office. Some have called for this through impeachment, while others have asked for the 25th Amendment to be used.
