Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) issued a statement Thursday calling for the immediate removal of President Trump by impeachment or the 25th Amendment. Schumer appealed to Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment as the quickest way to remove Trump.

“What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an insurrection against the United States, incited by the President. This president should not hold office one day longer.
“The quickest and most effective way – it can be done today -to remove this president from office would be for Vice President to immediately invoke 25th amendment. If the Vice President and the Cabinet refuse to stand up, Congress should reconvene to impeach the president.”
News reports Wednesday night said cabinet officials were discussing removing Trump by the 25th Amendment but had not spoken to Pence about it yet.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) became the first Republican in Congress to call for Trump’s removal by the 25th Amendment. Kinzinger released a video Thursday morning:

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
