WASHINGTON : Democratic lawmakers circulated articles of impeachment on Thursday to remove President Donald Trump from office after his supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol in a violent breach, Representative David Cicilline said.
“I am circulating Articles of Impeachment that
@RepTedLieu, @RepRaskin and I have prepared to remove the President from office following yesterday’s attack on the U.S. Capitol,” Cicilline said on Twitter.
CNN reported that the members of the House Judiciary Committee are urging Vice President Mike Pence and members from President Trump’s Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution and remove Trump from office.
Newly elected Representative Mondaire Jones got it exactly right when he declared, “Donald Trump has incited violence against the legislative branch of the United States Government and must be impeached again,” the Nation reported.
Representative Charlie Crist of Florida, who is now a Democrat but was formerly a Republican, posted on Twitter that “The 25th Amendment allows for the removal of a President. It’s time to remove the President,” the New York Times reported.
