WASHINGTON, D.C. — Last night, Congressman Darren Soto (FL-09) voted to call upon Vice President Mike Pence to activate the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office. He gave the following remarks on the floor of the House of Representatives:
“Mr. Speaker, I was in the gallery right behind us when the Capitol was breached.
Then, domestic terrorists breached the rotunda. I heard the loud sounds of gunshots through this sacred chamber, and my last images were brave Capitol Police, guns drawn to protect us.
This was the first armed insurrection in over 200 years; and who incited this violent insurrection? Donald J. Trump.
Our resolution states these protests were encouraged by him, he urged millions of his followers to come and stop the steal, which is a lie. And let’s say this now for the record and for the ages: Joe Biden won.
And for his high crime, nearly ripping our country aback, we should be removing him by the 25th Amendment or he should be impeached.”
Congressman Soto will vote to impeach President Trump for his incitement of armed and deadly insurrection against America.
