Please see this Take Action Statement and Press Release from the League of Women Voters of the United States:
Last week, our nation saw horrific events unfold on the United States Capitol and for the world to see as armed white supremacist militias attacked a joint session of Congress meeting to count and certify the electoral college results of the 2020 Presidential Election. These individuals acted under the direction of President Trump, who has breached his oath of office to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States. President Trump is unfit to serve in the highest office of the land and should be disqualified from running for any political office in the future. We must hold him accountable for his actions.

WASHINGTON – Thursday night, the League of Women Voters board of directors met and voted unanimously to call for the immediate removal of Donald J. Trump from the office of the President of the United States of America via any legal means, including and in order of preference: impeachment with disqualification, the invocation of the 25th amendment, or resignation. Today, the League of Women Voters board of directors issued the following statement: “Donald Trump must be immediately removed as President of the United States of America and banned from running for federal office ever again. “The sitting president was the instigator of Wednesday’s domestic terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol that left five Americans dead and many more injured. He commanded an army of insurrectionists to forcefully overturn our free and fair elections in an effort to maintain power. These are the actions of a tyrannical despot, and they are in direct opposition to American democracy. President Trump continues to present a clear threat to national security as well as the safety and security of the American public. “For violating his oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, Donald Trump must immediately resign or be removed from office by any measure possible in accordance with the law. Removing President Trump from the office of the president and swearing in Vice President Mike Pence to fulfill the duration of this presidential term will ensure our Constitution is maintained and upheld. “The League of Women Voters calls on both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate to immediately impeach President Trump with disqualification and remove him from office. Should Congress fail to impeach him, we call on Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove President Trump from office immediately.”
