Schumer Statement Calling for the President to Be Immediately Removed from Office

January 7, 2021

Washington, D.C. - Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today released the following statement calling for president to be immediately removed from office:

“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 the Vice President to immediately invoke the 25th amendment. If the Vice President and the Cabinet refuse to stand up, Congress should reconvene to impeach the president.”
