Veteran Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) has called for the 25th Amendment to be invoked to remove President Donald Trump from office, citing the “security of our nation.”

Rep. Wasserman Schultz joins the growing chorus of Democratic legislators calling for President Trump’s removal. Fellow Floridian Rep. Stephanie Murphy also recently called for the “bold” decision to boot Trump from office.

“Bold decisions must be made to restore our democracy after yesterday’s attempted coup,” tweeted Wasserman Schultz. “For the security of our nation, Vice President Pence and the Cabinet must stand up, invoke the 25th Amendment, and remove Donald Trump from office.”

Even though Trump has signaled that may not have a problem throwing Vice President Mike Pence under the proverbial political bus for not supporting him, Pence is fiercely loyal and will most-likely refrain from embracing the Democrat’s 25th Amendment suggestion.

Trump has less than two weeks left in his term in office, so Pence won’t be making any moves like this. If he were to turn on Trump, the president’s supporters will never forgive him and would seek to oppose him, were he decide to run for another office.
