Calls to remove President Trump “immediately” from office are growing Wednesday night from Democrat members of Congress, a Democrat governor, never-Trumpers and the media. Either impeachment by the House and removal by the Senate or an invocation of the 25th Amendment requiring the consent of the vice president, the cabinet and Congress. Trump’s term of office ends at 11:59 a.m. EST January 20.

Vice President Pence and the Department of Defense appear to have cut President Trump from the chain of command with statements issued by a spokesman for Pence and acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller leaving out any mention of consultations with Trump.

“Vice President @Mike_Pence has returned to the Senate. He never left the Capitol. @VP was in regular contact w/ House & Senate leadership, Cap Police, DOJ, & DoD to facilitate efforts to secure the Capitol & reconvene Congress. And now we will finish the People’s business.”

Statement by acting Secretary of Defense Miller and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley:

“Chairman Milley and I just spoke separately with the Vice President and with Speaker Pelosi, Leader McConnell, Senator Schumer and Representative Hoyer about the situation at the U.S. Capitol. We have fully activated the D.C. National Guard to assist federal and local law enforcement as they work to peacefully address the situation. We are prepared to provide additional support as necessary and appropriate as requested by local authorities. Our people are sworn to defend the constitution and our democratic form of government and they will act accordingly.”
