image for Pence Should Invoke 25th Amendment to Remove Trump From Office Immediately

His supporters have now even stormed the U.S. Capitol in protest while Congress voted to certify Joe Biden’s election victory.

More than 50 years ago, the framers of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution foresaw the possibility of a president’s behavior becoming so unstable that it would prove necessary to have some constitutional mechanism to remove him immediately from office.

But as we reach the final days of the Trump presidency, this obstacle is about to be removed.

Trump would put up a fight, but it wouldn’t matter this late in his presidency.

Once Pence has transmitted the letter to Congress that makes him acting president, Trump may contest the vice-president’s actions via a letter of his own.

Were it not the end of his term, Trump would return to office after 21 days if Congress failed to act.

For the good of the nation, he should do so immediately. »

Gupta worked as U.S. assistant attorney general for civil rights in the Obama administration and is currently the president of the leadership conference on civil and human rights. »
