Kinzinger first GOP lawmaker to call for Trump's removal

U.S. Congressman Adam Kinzinger stepped up to become the first Republican legislator to call for President Trump's removal from office following the historical events in Washington, D.C.Wednesday. 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.

"It's time to invoke the 25th Amendment," Kinzinger said regarding the transfer of power. "All the staff has left."

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is resigning. She's the second cabinet member to resign following the chaos at the Capitol.  Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao resigned earlier Thursday.
