House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) outlined plans Sunday to move ahead with legislation to impeach President Trump over last week's siege at the U.S. capitol.
Driving the news: Pelosi said in a letter to Democrats the House will on Monday work to pass a resolution designed to press Vice President Mike Pence to "convene and mobilize the Cabinet to activate the 25th Amendment to declare the President incapable of executing the duties of his office."
- She's giving Pence 24 hours to respond. If not, "we will proceed with bringing impeachment legislation to the Floor," Pelosi said.
What she's saying: Pelosi she wanted to act "with urgency" in "protecting our Constitution and our Democracy" because "this President represents an imminent threat to both."
- "As the days go by, the horror of the ongoing assault on our democracy perpetrated by this President is intensified and so is the immediate need for action," she added.
