He argued that invoking the 25th Amendment would be divisive and set a "terrible precedent" that would further "inflame the passions of the moment." During a speech in Alamo, Texas, on Tuesday, Trump dismissed the threat of his removal through the 25th Amendment.

WASHINGTON — The House is set to vote on a resolution Tuesday that calls on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office. The measure says Pence should "convene and mobilize" Trump's Cabinet to activate the 25th Amendment to declare the president "incapable of executing the duties of his office and to immediately exercise powers as acting President." The House is expected to vote on it around 10:30 p.m. Pence, however, is unlikely to remove Trump from office. The vice president met with Trump in the Oval Office Monday evening, a senior administration official said, which was their first contact since the attack on the Capitol.

The long one, which Mr. Raskin, who has written two books on Supreme Court cases, intends to deliver Wednesday on the House floor, begins this way: “We came very close to experiencing a coup in America. It was like an attempted coup wrapped inside a violent riot wrapped inside some cosmetic protests on the outside.”He went on: “And the president gave all kinds of aid, comfort and exhortation to the mob. His father, Marcus Raskin, who died in 2017, was an aide to President John F. Kennedy and a vehement opponent of the Vietnam War. The younger Mr. Raskin keeps a 1964 clipping from The Washington Post with a photo of him as a 2-year-old toting a placard at a protest.

It puts them just shy of the 218-vote majority needed to impeach Trump in the House, though the number could end up lower due to vacancies and absences. The House will likely vote to impeach Trump by later this week, only a few days before President-elect Joe Biden will take office one week from Wednesday. Trump exhorted his supporters outside the White House to march on the Capitol shortly before the Capitol siege and repeated lies that widespread fraud cost him the November election. The White House and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., have argued impeachment would divide the country. If all Democrats vote to convict Trump, 17 Republicans would have to join them to meet the needed two-thirds threshold.

(Reuters) - President Donald Trump may turn to Rudy Giuliani to defend him against possible impeachment over his role in last week’s violent siege of the U.S. Capitol, according to two people familiar with the matter. REUTERS/Jim BourgOne of the sources, an outside adviser to the White House, said Giuliani was expected to play a lead role in any impeachment effort. The other source familiar with the situation said Giuliani, a personal attorney of the president, would likely provide the kind of representation Trump wants. Giuliani, 76, led the legal team that tried unsuccessfully to overturn Trump’s election defeat. Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard Law professor emeritus who argued as part of the defense in Trump’s impeachment trial last year, told Reuters on Friday that he would be honored to help defend Trump given the First Amendment issues, if asked.
