Thursday, Senator Chuck Schumer tweeted:
What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an insurrection against the United States, incited by President Trump.
This president must 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 must reconvene to impeach President Trump.
Schumer issued the following statement Wednesday, blaming President Trump for the storming of the U.S. Capitol that led to 5 deaths.
