WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Darren Soto (FL-09) called for the removal of President Donald Trump through the 25th amendment or impeachment. 

“Yesterday, our nation experienced one of the darkest days in American history. Incited by President Donald Trump and a group of extremist Republican Members of Congress, domestic terrorists breached our United States Capitol and attacked the very cornerstone of our democracy. Armed insurrection against our democracy will carry a heavy price. That is why I’m joining my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to call for President Trump's removal, either by the 25th amendment or impeachment. Whichever the means, we can no longer allow the treasonous President Trump to remain in office another minute.” 

Congressman Soto was in the House Chamber when rioters stormed into the Capitol building. He took cover and shortly evacuated to a safe undisclosed location. 

“Hours after this domestic terrorist attack, we returned to the House Chamber to defend the constitution. Early the next morning, we certified Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the next President and Vice President of the United States. Our democracy survived.”
