My take: If inciting an attack on the nation’s Capitol and then failing to call in the national guard to protect those being attacked (Pence, did that, not Trump) is not reason to remove a president, what is? Does he get to return to his golf course and play a few rounds and then run for president again? He must not be allowed to soil this office for a single additional day. It probably won’t succeed, but a movement to remove Trump is building, and it’s now being led by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi and Schumer call for Trump’s immediate removal from office for ‘insurrection.’

+ They are not alone: WaPo Editorial Board: Trump caused the assault on the Capitol. He must be removed. NYT Editorial Board: “The president needs to be held accountable — through impeachment proceedings or criminal prosecution — and the same goes for his supporters who carried out the violence.” The Atlantic: Remove Trump Tonight.

+ When it comes to the 25th Amendement, we could see the cabinet members depart before taking action. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao is preparing to resign. Others could follow. Here’s the latest from WaPo. We’ll see many other departures from the administration as well. But keep this in mind: The time to resign or express outrage is when a person calls for violence, not after the violence takes place. Don’t don’t give people like Mick Mulvaney too much credit. He quit from a nothing job today. But on November 7th, he wrote an op-ed in the WSJ titled: If He Loses, Trump Will Concede Gracefully.
