Congressman David Price Calls for President Trump’s Removal from Office
WASHINGTON, DC (January 7, 2020) -- Today, Congressman Price released a statement calling on Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th amendment in order to immediately remove President Trump from office:
“Since before the election, President Trump has fomented rage among his supporters with baseless conspiracies about the election, and yesterday it manifested into a violent attempted coup at the U.S. Capitol. The President and his Republican enablers in Congress are responsible for the mob and their acts of insurrection.
“I call on Vice President Pence and cabinet members to uphold their oath to the Constitution and invoke the 25th Amendment immediately to remove President Trump from office. President Trump’s erratic behavior, his refusal to honor his constitutional duties, and his incitement of an attack on the very seat of democracy leave us no choice. It is too dangerous to wait until January 20th.
“In the meantime, Congress must do its part and that is why I am also cosponsoring Articles of Impeachment. President Trump has engaged in conduct that is both criminal and impeachable: his call on January 2nd demanding that the Georgia Secretary of State “find” over 11,000 votes and his encouragement of violent events yesterday warrant removal from office and a ban on ever holding public office again.”
