Pelosi says House will impeach Trump, pushes VP to oust him
The House plans to move quickly to impeach Pres. Trump if Pence does not oust him with the 25th Amendment.
WASHINGTON, District of Columbia (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says the House will proceed with legislation to impeach President Donald Trump as she pushes the vice president to invoke constitutional authority to force him out.
The President is holed up at the White House, increasingly isolated after a mob rioted in the Capitol in support of his false claims of election fraud.
A second Republican senator, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, is calling for Trump to resign.
Lawmakers warn of the damage the president can do before Joe Biden is inaugurated Jan. 20.
