For Immediate Release
Remove Trump from Office
WASHINGTON - In response to thousands of Trump supporters beaching the U.S. Capitol building, the following statement was issued by Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen:
“Today, Donald Trump incited a riot, an insurrection designed to advance his hapless coup attempt and erode confidence in our democratic process. He has conclusively demonstrated his unfitness for office. He cannot be permitted to remain in office even for two more weeks; the risks of more deranged action are simply too high.
“The Vice President and the cabinet should immediately invoke the 25th amendment to remove Trump from office. The House of Representatives should act immediately to impeach him, with the Senate voting to convict. Once removed, Trump should be criminally prosecuted.”
