Cites Trump’s pervasive danger to our democracy

WASHINGTON— Today, Congresswoman Linda T. Sánchez released the following statement regarding the immediate need to remove President Trump from office, following yesterday’s insurrection at the United States Capitol:

“President Trump continues to present a pervasive danger to our country, people, and democracy and must be removed from office immediately. I call on Vice President Pence and the members of the Cabinet to immediately begin the process of removing him from office, as prescribed in the 25th Amendment of the Constitution. However, it’s difficult to see the president’s most blind and loyal supporters ever rising to this most pressing occasion. Therefore, I join my colleagues in the House of Representatives in submitting articles of impeachment for President Trump’s high crimes and misdemeanors against our nation.”
