House To Vote On 25th Amendment Request


The House is scheduled to vote today on whether to ask Vice President Mike Pence to use the 25th Amendment and take President Trump out of office. 

The move was held up yesterday by one Republican congressman under House rules which set up a full vote on the issue today. 

The resolution requests that Pence and the Cabinet declare that Trump is incapable of carrying out his duties in the next 24 hours. Pence has shown no sign of being willing to use the 25th Amendment against Trump. 

An article of impeachment has already been drafted, charging the president with "incitement of insurrection" following last week's deadly siege of the U.S. Capitol.
