U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Calls on Vice President Pence to Invoke the 25th Amendment to Remove President Trump Immediately

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin released the following statement announcing her support for Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to immediately remove President Trump from office:

“President Trump incited a violent insurrection against Congress as we were working to faithfully carry out our constitutional duties to accept the vote of the American people. This attack on our democracy makes it clear he has broken his oath to support and defend the Constitution, and that he is unfit to serve. I join the bipartisan calls for Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment so that the American people can have confidence that there will be a peaceful transition of power in the few remaining days of this disgraceful and dangerous presidency. If the Vice President fails to act, then Congress should take action to address President Trump’s impeachable offenses.”
