Rep. Ilhan Omar has drafted articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, while Minnesota's Democratic delegation are calling for the president's removal from office.
Omar announced in the aftermath of the assault on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters that she would be starting the process to impeach the president, and revealed the articles in a tweet Thursday morning.
She has been joined in calling for Trump's removal by other congressional Democrats from Minnesota.
On Thursday, 3rd District Rep. Dean Phillips said he would be staying in Washington "to implore the House and Senate stay in session today and tomorrow to entertain impeachment or accept invocation of the 25th amendment to remove the President from office."
"No more lies. No more pardons. No more destruction. No more enabling. No more sedition. No more tolerance. The President must be removed immediately. History will judge every one of us in a position to end this nightmare," he tweeted. "I ask like-minded colleagues to stay in DC and help do so."
On Wednesday, 2nd District Rep. Angie Craig tweeted: "The President should not serve another day in office. I encourage members of his Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove him. We must defend our nation and preserve our democracy."
And 4th District Rep. Betty McCollum said that the president "incited a coup," adding: "For four years, President Trump has distorted, lied, and disgraced the office of the presidency. He has already been impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of justice – and the immediate peril facing our democracy and national security means we cannot wait for another impeachment trial.
"The next 13 days until inauguration are truly treacherous days for our nation. It is clear that Mr. Trump's mental state presents a clear and present threat to our nation. He does not have the capacity to execute his duties. In such a dire and urgent situation, the U.S. Constitution provides a remedy."
Minnesota's House Republicans, Reps. Tom Emmer, Pete Stauber, Michelle Fischbach, and Jim Hagedorn, all condemned the violent scenes at the Capitol, but haven't commented on whether the president should serve out his remaining 13 days in power.
