Nancy Pelosi: After ‘Armed Insurrection’ House Could Impeach Trump Again

During a press conference on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that if Vice President Mike Pence does not pursue removing the President from the White House, then the House could move forward with impeaching Donald Trump.

Pelosi was referring to Vice President Pence using the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from power.

Pelosi said, “If the vice president and the cabinet do not act, the congress may be prepared to move forward with impeachment.”

Pelosi: ‘This Is Urgent; This Is An Emergency Of The Highest Magnitude’

Speaking of her belief that President Trump encouraged the Capitol protests that resulted in the breaching of the Capitol building, Pelosi said, “Yesterday, the president of the United States incited an armed insurrection against America.” 

“This is urgent; this is an emergency of the highest magnitude,” Pelosi said.

The Democrat leader called Trump “a very dangerous person who should not continue in office.”

“We are in a very difficult place in our country as long as Donald Trump sits in the White House,” she added.

“While there are only 13 days left, any day can be a horror show for America,” Pelosi went on.

Schumer said, “What happened at the U.S. Capitol was an insurrection against the United States, incited by the president. This president should not hold office one day longer.”

“The quickest and most effective way – it can be today – to remove this president from office would be for the Vice President to immediately invoke the 25th Amendment,” Schumer added.

“If the Vice President and the Cabinet refuse to stand up, Congress should reconvene to impeach the president,” Schumer insisted.
