More than a dozen Democratic members of Congress are calling to impeach President Donald Trump again, just two weeks before he leaves office. "Donald J. Trump should be impeached by the House of Representatives & removed from office by the United States Senate. Other Democratic officials have called on his administration to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office. More than a dozen Democratic Congressional representatives say they will try to impeach President Donald Trump again after his supporters stormed the halls of Congress to defy the certification of President-elect Joe Biden's election victory. Rep Ilhan Omar tweeted Wednesday afternoon that she was drawing up articles of impeachment to remove Trump from office.

Democrats talk about 25th Amendment, impeachment after Capitol riots
  + stars: | 2021-01-06 | by ( Tucker Higgins | In | ) www.cnbc.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
The Washington riot that broke out Wednesday has revamped talk among Democrats about impeaching President Donald Trump or ousting him from office via the Constitution's 25th Amendment. It's not clear whether impeachment will gain support from most Democrats, and it's almost certain there isn't enough time to remove him that way. If Democrats impeached Trump after he left office and he were convicted in the Senate, he would not be permitted to hold office again. Several other House Democrats are now pursuing another means to hasten the moment Trump is constitutionally mandated to leave office. Under that amendment, the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet can declare the president no longer able to hold office.

Reps.-elect Cori Bush and Jamaal Bowman on Sunday declined to say whether they will support House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's upcoming bid to retain her role during an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union." When Congress returns in the new year, members will vote whether to elect Pelosi for her fourth two-year term as Speaker of the House of Representatives. Pelosi in November announced her intention to seek another term as the House speaker. Members of the House will vote when they convene for the first time in the new year on January 3. She was reelected House Speaker in 2019 when Democrats regained control of the House during the 2018 midterm elections.

With Trump's surprise support for $2,000 stimulus checks, Democratic leadership and the progressive wing of the party have rallied in support of the amendment. Many representatives, including Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have been calling for $2,000 stimulus checks since the spring, and are piling pressure on Mitch McConnell to make it happen. Democratic members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus reacted positively to Trump's call for $2,000 stimulus checks, a sum that several progressive members began advocating for in March. @RashidaTlaib and I already co-wrote the COVID amendment for $2,000 checks, so it's ready to go. Ocasio-Cortez called for $2,000 stimulus checks when the pandemic began in March and reiterated that call last week.

The bill would give most Americans $600 in direct stimulus payments, a cut in half from the initial stimulus checks in March . But President Donald Trump signaled he wouldn't sign the bill if Congress doesn't amend the legislation and raise the "ridiculously low" $600 stimulus checks to $2,000 or $4,000 per couple. "While a one-time check of $600 is better than nothing, it's woefully insufficient as relief, let alone as stimulus." On the contrary, economists consider $2,000 checks to be "more helpful" for the millions of families in need. But they add that more than just a bump up in stimulus checks is needed.

A handful of both Republican and Democratic members of Congress are objecting to their colleagues receiving the COVID-19 vaccine ahead of more vulnerable populations.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showed her receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley did not mince words when criticizing the $600 dollar stimulus checks which are reportedly included in Congress's latest proposal for a coronavirus stimulus package. "At this point, these are not even stimulus checks. "My constituents need these moneys to remain safely housed," Pressley said, adding that "600 dollars does not even cover one month's rent." Earlier this month, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders have both pushed for a second round of $1,200 stimulus checks. Ocasio-Cortez, also a member of "the squad" of progressive lawmakers alongside Pressley, criticized Senate Republicans that they "just doesn't care" and slammed the $600 checks as an "insultingly low amount," Business Insider's Sophia Ankel reported.

Americans hold over $1.7 trillion in student debt and the federal reserve estimates that 31% of all U.S. adults have student loans — all while the country faces a recession and historically high unemployment. Now, House Democrats have proposed "broadly" forgiving up to $50,000 of federal debt for student borrowers. Notably, Waters is the chair of the influential House Financial Services Committee and has previously called for Biden to cancel $50,000 of student debt. "The student debt crisis is a racial and economic justice issue and we must finally begin to address it as such," said Congresswoman Pressley in a statement. "Broad-based student debt cancellation is precisely the kind of bold, high-impact policy that the broad and diverse coalition that elected Joe Biden and Kamala Harris expect them to deliver."

With three more federal inmates scheduled to be executed next month — days before President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration — more than 40 members of Congress and members-elect are asking him to sign an executive order to end the federal death penalty on his first day in office. Biden campaigned in support of a moratorium on the federal death penalty, favoring instead life sentences without probation or parole. The death penalty is racist. Ten federal inmates have been executed since July. Experts say it's due in part to states suspending executions because of the pandemic, as well as the abolishing or general reduction of capital punishment cases among states.

Additionally, the Death Row Information Center has reported that there 52 people on federal death row and 18 pending state executions. Biden has pledged to abolish the federal death penalty and to work to incentivize states to abolish theirs.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. The Democratic wipeout in swing districts in November left behind a smaller, but somewhat more progressive Democratic caucus hailing mainly from blue areas. Of the 15 incoming freshmen lawmakers, eight are members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and at least four have ties to the squad. "You have more people in Congress than ever that are going to be pushing really hard on this," she said.

If debt relief overall would disproportionately flow to better-off Americans, even modest debt forgiveness would help many financially vulnerable people, especially people of color. College dropouts, especially those who attended for-profit schools, often end up trapped by debt they cannot afford to repay. “In this moment of national reckoning on racial injustice, the president-elect must cancel all federal student debt on Day 1 of his administration,” Representative Ayanna Pressley, Democrat of Massachusetts, said in a statement. The total percentage of Black households that would benefit would be greater than white households, and the relative gains for those households’ net worth are far larger, the researchers found. The greatest marginal gains come from canceling the smallest debts; wiping out $20,000 would end student debt for half of all households with loans.

The Biden administration promises a return to certain Obama-era climate and energy policies — but it's a far cry from the aggressive action favored by experts and activists. The Trump administration has been a disaster for the environment. But on election day, voters rejected Trump's dangerous climate and energy policy reversals and outright climate change denial and showed that they're committed to a greener future. While voters showed that they are eager for climate action, it is difficult to know if a Biden administration will honor their mandate. If Americans want the Biden administration to take aggressive action against climate change, they may need to take their demands from the ballot box out into the street.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley blasted the "unprecedented vitriol" against women lawmakers and lawmakers of color, including from some within the Democratic Party, in an interview with radio show "Signal Boost" on Wednesday. She said a call for unity that sacrifices her equality as a Black woman "is not an option," tapping into the escalating debate between progressives and centrists over what — and who — the Democratic Party stands for. Pressley joins AOC and other progressive lawmakers who have recently sparred with centrist Democrats following the party's surprising losses in the House and ahead of two crucial Senate races in Georgia. Rep. Ayanna Pressley had strong words for her Democratic colleagues on Wednesday, urging them to address sexism and racism within their ranks and not to sacrifice equality as the party calls for unity. Democrats' fight will continue to play out against the backdrop of two competitive runoffs in Georgia that will decide which party controls the Senate.
