Pelosi, Schumer Join Leftist Coup Plotters, Threaten Impeachment if Pence Refuses To Go Along


by R. Cort Kirkwood, The New American:

Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will seek to impeach President Trump if Vice President Pence does not invoke the 25th Amendment and seek the Cabinet’s approval to remove Trump from office.

Citing Trump’s “insurrection” and “sedition,” the house speaker and top Senate Democrat thus join the leftists who, for the last four years, have either encouraged violence against Trump officials, or violent revolution in the streets, including Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

“Trump is deadly to our democracy and our people,” the leftist house speaker said. “He needs to go now.”


At long last, after their failed impeachment in early 2020, the hard-left Democrats might finally achieve their bloodless coup.

Twitter Threat

“While it’s only 13 days left, any day can be a horror show for America,” Pelosi said, the New York Times reported.

Pelosi said Trump committed a “seditious act,” and summarized her remarks in a tweet:

Trump has committed an assault on our nation and our people.

Pence must remove him and invoke the 25th amendment. If they fail to act, we may be prepared to move forward with impeachment.

“Justice will be done to those who carried out these acts of sedition and cowardice,” Pelosi said.

Schumer tweeted likewise. Yesterday’s mostly peaceful protest at the U.S. Capitol was an “insurrection,” the leftist claimed:

What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an insurrection against the United States, incited by President Trump.

This president must not hold office one day longer.

Schumer thinks Pence and the Cabinet should act today, and if they don’t, expect an impeachment — again, with just 13 days to go in Trump’s administration:

The quickest and most effective way — it can be done today — to remove this president from office would be for the Vice President to immediately invoke the 25th amendment.

If the Vice President and the Cabinet refuse to stand up, Congress must reconvene to impeach President Trump.

Pelosi and Schumer apparently think they have the power to order Pence to use the 25th, a move that top FBI officials discussed in 2017. Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz called that discussion an unconstitutional coup attempt.

Reported the Times:

[Pelosi] hoped to have an answer from Mr. Pence within the day on whether he would attempt to use the 25th Amendment. The two leaders tried to call Mr. Pence directly on Thursday but were left on a holding line for 20 minutes without Mr. Pence picking up.

It was unclear how quickly Democrats could move to impeach Mr. Trump. There is no clear precedent for putting a former official on trial in the Senate, and with only 13 days left in his term, it was not certain Democrats could actually accomplish such a complicated and politically fraught process on a compressed timetable.

Promoting Insurrection

Last night, Schumer was unequivocal in denouncing the mostly peaceful protestors at the U.S. Capitol. “Those who performed today’s reprehensible acts were rioters, insurrectionists, thugs, domestic terrorists,” he tweeted:

They don’t represent America

They were violent extremists who tried to take over the Capitol

They must be prosecuted to the full extent

But tonight Democracy will triumph

Oddly though, Schumer and Pelosi were unconcerned when Antifa and Black Lives Matters terrorists rampaged across the country. They rioted, and burned and looted major cities. Nor were the two concerned when other influential Democrats encouraged the violence.
