▶️ WEB EXTRA: OSU Professor explains 25th Amendment procedures, likelihood

President Donald Trump’s role in inciting violence at the Capitol and his long refusal to acknowledge his election defeat is prompting some lawmakers to urge his removal from office through the 25th Amendment.

The amendment allows for the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet to declare a president unfit for office.

The vice president then becomes acting president.
