Trump faces 2nd impeachment unless Pence invokes 25th Amendment, Dems. say

Description:

Democrats say they'll proceed with impeaching Trump for "incitement of insurrection" unless Vice President Pence invokes the 25th Amendment within 24 hours. "Nightline" speaks to GOP Rep. Nancy Mace.


"Face the Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan reports some senior members of the Trump administration have discussed the possibility of invoking the 25th Amendment, which could be used to remove a president from office and make the vice president the commander in chief. She joins "CBS Evening News" anchor and managing editor Norah O'Donnell for a CBS News Special Report in the aftermath of the violent protests at the Capitol.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is calling for for the 25th Amendment to be invoked. She adds that impeachment should be considered if that doesn't happen.
With nine days until Biden's inauguration, Trump faces another impeachment vote by the U.S. House after inciting a deadly siege by insurgents loyal to Trump on the U.S. Capitol. Aired on 01/12/2021.
President Trump has finally emerged from seclusion for the first time since the insurrection on the U.S. Capitol, and he isn't accepting responsibility for the heinous acts that many say he incited. While he denounced the violence, he simultaneously warned that attempts to impeach him for a second time would cause "danger to our country" and "tremendous anger." The House has already introduced articles of impeachment against him for inciting an insurrection.
