US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for the immediate expulsion of President Donald Trump from power, describing him as “a very dangerous person who should not continue in office.”
This is an emergency of the utmost severity,” said the top Democrat in Congress, urging Vice President Mike Pence and the cabinet of Trump to invoke the 25th amendment.” If the 25th amendment, which requires a cabinet majority to oust a president who is found unfit to perform his duties, is not invoked, Congress is prepared to step on with impeachment, she added.

Pelosi said, adding that she and top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer had “made our interest in this known, so we’ll see what they come back with,” I don’t think it’ll take long to get a response from the vice president. But they’re supposed to speak for it,
She put the blame squarely on Trump for what she described as a “attempted coup,” announcing he had “incited an armed insurrection against America.”
A barrier of such significance has been reached that there is no way that this president can be permitted to make any decision to rouse any of his Trumpite soldiers. What’s next? What’s going on today? And she said.
“We do know that it is necessary to contain him.”
“She singled out acting defence secretary Christopher Miller with questions being asked about the security failures in the violence of Wednesday, saying he “certainly needs to respond to where the National Guard was yesterday. Trump, she went on, is Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s “complete tool.”
And it’s not enough merely to wait before his tenure as president ends on Jan 20,” Pelosi said.”
“This dangerous man may do further harm to our country in the next 13 days.”
