Gov. J.B. Pritzker is demanding the U.S. Congress remove President Donald Trump from office. The Democratic Illinois governor said the Republican president is responsible for the violent clashes that happened inside the nation’s capital Wednesday, despite the president telling people to go home “in peace.” Naperville Democratic U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood said the nation can’t wait until Inauguration Day and Trump should be removed immediately.
U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger became the first Republican Congressman to call for President Trump's removal from office after Wednesday's historical events in Washington, D.C. Kinzinger said Thursday Congress needs to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump. Kinzinger said the transfer of power is now a necessity following Trump's public display regarding the protesters and repeated claims about the validity of the November election.
Several Democratic lawmakers have also called for this action. Congressional members in Indiana are also calling for the President's removal from office.
