House bill calls for Pence to remove Trump via 25th Amendment
CNN, 12 Jan 2021
Republicans just blocked a bill introduced by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer aimed at pushing President Trump out of office through the 25th Amendment.
Democrats on sought to take up a resolution from Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland urging Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment, but it was blocked by Republicans.
Hoyer tried to pass the resolution through unanimous consent. West Virginia Republican Rep. Alex Mooney objected to the request.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said the Democrats will move to bring the resolution for a full floor vote on Tuesday.
The House is now adjourned until 9:00 a.m. ET tomorrow.
