Pa. Sen. Bob Casey calls for Trump's removal, says Pence should invoke 25th Amendment

Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey on Thursday joined the calls for the removal of President Donald Trump in the wake of Wednesday's insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

The 25th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution 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. The section of the amendment specifically addressing this procedure has never been invoked.

Casey joined other bipartisan voices, including the Senate's top Democrat, Chuck Schumer of New York, and Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., calling for Trump's immediate removal.
