Republicans block attempt to oust Trump by 25th amendment with unanimous consent

House Republicans have blocked the attempt by Democrats to oust President Trump by the 25th amendment with unanimous consent.

Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) proposed that the resolution be passed unanimously.

Republican Alex Mooney (R-W.Va.) objected to Hoyer’s request.

Per TheHill “after the exchange, Hoyer told reporters that the full House will vote on the rule for the resolution Tuesday and vote for final passage on Tuesday evening. That would force Republicans to go on record three times opposing the 25th Amendment resolution, Democrats said.”

Pelosi had tweeted earlier:

Today, five days after the President incited a deadly insurrection against American democracy, the @HouseGOP blocked @RepRaskin’s legislation calling on @VP Pence to activate the 25th Amendment.

The House will next take up the Raskin legislation in regular order, and we are further calling on the Vice President to respond within 24 hours of passage.
