United States Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, has called for the immediate impeachment of President Donald Trump.
The Democratic leader made the call after Trump’s supporters breached the Capital Hill on Wednesday.
Schumer, in a statement, said what happened was an insurrection against America incited by the President.
“The quickest and most effective way, it can be done today; to remove this president from office will be for the Vice President to immediately invoke the 25th amendment.
“This President should not hold office one day longer. If the Vice President and the Cabinet refused to stand up, congress must reconvene to impeach President Trump”, the lawmaker demanded.
Also on Thursday, former U.S. Attorney-General, William Barr declared that the American leader orchestrated the mob action.
Barr, in a statement, said his conduct “was a betrayal of his office and supporters”.
“Orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress is inexcusable”, Barr noted.
