The House passed a resolution late on Tuesday evening Call on Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to remove President Trump from office about the 25th amendment. This was a historic vote, wrote FiveThirtyEight’s Perry Bacon Jr., because while the House has indicted three presidents (including Trump once before), it has never suggested that a president’s cabinet remove him from office. The vote was largely symbolic Pence said in a letter to House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi ahead of the vote that he would not invoke the 25th amendment.
So the real question today is what happens in the House vote on the indictment, which Pelosi said would take place if Trump administration officials did not act within 24 hours of Tuesday’s resolution. A handful of House Republicans have voted in favor of impeachment, and Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is also reported believe that Trump committed criminal actsThis signals that the math for a Senate conviction might be different this time around, as some GOP members may sign up It’s too early to tell when the Republicans turn en masse against the president.
