House considers resolution calling on Pence to activate 25th Amendment

CBS, 13 Jan 2021
The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives could vote as early as Tuesday on a nonbinding measure urging Vice President Mike Pence to lead the Cabinet in invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from power after his supporters stormed the Capitol last week, leaving five people dead.

Pence, who met with Mr. Trump Monday for the first time since the January 6 attack on the Capitol, is not expected to do anything to push the president out. If he and the Cabinet do not invoke the 25th Amendment, the House is expected to vote Wednesday on an article of impeachment against Mr. Trump, holding him responsible for inciting the mob.

Mr. Trump on Monday admitted to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy that he was at least partly to blame for the violence.
