House Armed Services chair calls for invoking the 25th Amendment and removing Trump from office
The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee called Thursday for removing President Trump from office a day after pro-Trump rioters breached the Capitol.
“President Trump incited & encouraged this riot,” Chairman Adam Smith tweeted. “He & his enablers are responsible for the despicable attack at the Capitol. VP Pence and the Cabinet should invoke the 25th amendment to remove Trump, otherwise Senate Republicans must work with the House to impeach & remove him.”
Smith joins a growing number of lawmakers calling for Trump’s removal through either the 25th Amendment or impeachment after the president urged supporters to march on the Capitol while Congress was certifying Joe Biden’s presidential victory.
