Washington, DC —Today, Meagan Hatcher-Mays, Director of Democracy Policy for Indivisible, issued the following statement:

“We applaud the House of Representatives for passing tonight’s resolution calling for Vice President Mike Pence and the cabinet to invoke their powers under the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and immediately remove Donald Trump from office. But even after last week’s deadly coup attempt where a mob, at Trump’s urging, stormed the Capitol with intentions of causing life-threatening harm to Members of Congress and the Vice President himself, we do not expect Pence to finally do the right thing for our country and stand up to his boss.

“That’s why we look forward to the House of Representatives reconvening tomorrow to impeach Trump for the second time. The Senate must then take up the articles of impeachment immediately and vote to convict and permanently disqualify Trump from ever holding federal office again. To eradicate Trumpism, we must first hold the man himself accountable. Conviction and disqualification is a good start.”
