Rep. Bass Calls For President Trump To Be Removed Immediately

January 7, 2021
Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressmember Karen Bass (D-CA) issued the following statement after the President of the United States incited a coup attempt at the United States Capitol.

“Donald Trump should be removed from office today. That can happen one of two ways. 

“First, Vice President Pence can step up and get the President’s Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment. Unfortunately, I believe members of the Cabinet are as corrupt and unpatriotic as the president and, though the president is clearly unfit for office, they lack both the courage and the commitment to our Constitution to take the necessary action to invoke the 25th Amendment.  

“If the 25th amendment is not invoked, Donald Trump should be impeached for the second time. Unfortunately for our democracy, actual removal of the president would require a conviction vote from 14 Senators who belong to the same party that literally tried to overturn the results of our presidential election yesterday. I believe that they, too, will lack both the courage and the commitment to our Constitution to take the necessary action to convict."
