After an explosive day that included a mostly peaceful demonstration by Trump supporters in DC, marred by an inexcusable assault on the nation’s capital, many Democrats are seeing their chance to strike.
Multiple outlets are confirming that lawmakers in DC are huddling in a desperate effort to invoke the 25th amendment to remove Trump before his presidential term is up.
The Hill reports:
Democratic lawmakers called on Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment on Wednesday and remove President Trump from office, blaming the president for inciting the rioters that violently breached the Capitol building.
“Dear @VP @Mike_Pence: You need to start the 25th Amendment. @realDonaldTrump is detached from reality,” wrote Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.)
Never mind that President Trump explicitly condemned the violence at the capitol today, telling supporters “I know your pain, I know your hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election, and everyone knows it, especially the other side…But you have to go home now. We have to have peace, we have to have law and order.”
Due to the actions of a few crazed individuals, Trump’s entire presidency could end in defeat and disgrace. What a sad day.
I attended the rally today. Hundreds of thousands of people peacefully assembled. I saw families, nuns, Amish, elderly… all there to support the President. I’m very sorry that the peaceful demonstrators overshadowed by the rioters. They don’t speak for everyone pic.twitter.com/fXwYkJEs22
