Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) demanded that Washington policymakers act immediately to remove President Trump from office just two weeks before his term ends, citing “seditious” acts related to the president’s role in encouraging the assault on the U.S. Capitol a day earlier.
During her weekly news conference today Pelosi said Vice President Pence should invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump immediately. Short of that, she threatened, the House will impeach him for a second time.
