League of Women Voters of the United States Calls for Immediate Removal of President Donald Trump

1/8/2021

WASHINGTON – Thursday night, the League of Women Voters board of directors met and voted unanimously to call for the immediate removal of Donald J. Trump from the office of the President of the United States of America via any legal means, including and in order of preference: impeachment with disqualification, the invocation of the 25th amendment, or resignation. Today, the League of Women Voters board of directors issued the following statement:

“Donald Trump must be immediately removed as President of the United States of America and banned from running for federal office ever again.

“The sitting president was the instigator of Wednesday’s domestic terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol that left five Americans dead and many more injured. He commanded an army of insurrectionists to forcefully overturn our free and fair elections in an effort to maintain power. These are the actions of a tyrannical despot, and they are in direct opposition to American democracy. President Trump continues to present a clear threat to national security as well as the safety and security of the American public.

“For violating his oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, Donald Trump must immediately resign or be removed from office by any measure possible in accordance with the law. Removing President Trump from the office of the president and swearing in Vice President Mike Pence to fulfill the duration of this presidential term will ensure our Constitution is maintained and upheld.

“The League of Women Voters calls on both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate to immediately impeach President Trump with disqualification and remove him from office. Should Congress fail to impeach him, we call on Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove President Trump from office immediately.”

Donald Trump must be immediately removed as President of the United States of America and banned from running for federal office ever again.

01/08/2021

From League of Women Voters National Office:

Yesterday’s violence in the U.S. Capitol building was an attack on our democracy, but the violence and hate of white supremacists does not come as any surprise. For months, the sitting president of the United States has refused to concede the free and fair election he lost, while encouraging his supporters to somehow overturn the election. Other cities have also seen similar demonstrations and destruction of government property in the name of Trump and the lies he spews about our election.
The League condemns the attack for what it was: domestic terrorism.
There’s no doubt about it: our democracy was shaken yesterday. But the terrorists did not win. Congress resumed their constitutional duty and ascertained Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the winners of the 2020 election and the next president and vice president of the United States.
We know there is fear and anger across this country today, but our job remains the same as it has for 100 years: empowering voters and defending democracy. We stand together today against the violent tyranny of this president and those who promote and carry out violence in his name.

In solidarity,

Virginia Kase
Chief Executive Officer, LWVUS
