Several Republican lawmakers announced on Tuesday supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump for the deadly Capitol attack last week, as the House of Representatives moves toward a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to declare the president unable to serve.
We just had a violent mob assault the Capitol in an attempt to prevent those from carrying out our Constitutional duty. There is no question that the President formed the mob, the President incited the mob, the President addressed the mob. He lit the flame. pic.twitter.com/nc9WLmtfuv— Rep.

.@VP they wanted to hang you. You had an entire security detail to protect you, you were quickly evacuated. I was not. We were left stranded with an angry mob. Heal our wounds, invoke the #25thAmendment #CourageUnderFire— Rep. Norma Torres (@NormaJTorres) January 12, 2021
