House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said during a press conference Thursday that if Vice President Mike Pence does not move forward with efforts to remove President Donald Trump from office, then the House might impeach the 45th president.
Pelosi signaled her support for using the 25th Amendment and floated that the House may try to remove Trump from office via impeachment.
“If the vice president and the cabinet do not act, the congress may be prepared to move forward with impeachment,” Pelosi said.
“Yesterday, the president of the United States incited an armed insurrection against America,” she added.
“This is urgent; this is an emergency of the highest magnitude,” Pelosi said. The California Democrat 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 said.
