Ilhan Omar Says House ‘Will Impeach This Week’ If Pence Doesn’t Act On Trump

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) took to Twitter on Monday to say that the House of Representatives “will impeach this week” if Vice President Mike Pence does not invoke the 25th Amendment against President Donald Trump.

Omar Discusses Impeaching Trump

“Where things stand: I just introduced my impeachment resolution,” she wrote. “The full House will now vote on a measure calling on VP Pence and the cabinet to remove Donald Trump under the 25th amendment. If Pence does not act, the House will move to impeach this week.”

This comes days after Omar said she was “drawing up Articles of Impeachment,” claiming that Trump “should be impeached by the House of Representatives & removed from office by the United States Senate.”

“We can’t allow him to remain in office, it’s a matter of preserving our Republic and we need to fulfill our oath,” she continued.

Omar’s tweet on Monday included various bills and letters that she has pledged to support.

“Together, we will hold this president accountable and restore our democracy,” Omar concluded.

Omar Leading The Charge To Impeach Trump

Omar has been leading the charge to impeach Trump in the days since the riots at the Capitol.

“We must impeach and remove him from office immediately so he cannot threaten our democracy and the world any longer and hold public office ever again,” Omar said, according to Newsweek. “Congress should reconvene immediately to carry out this constitutional duty.”

She added that she has no confidence in Trump’s cabinet actually invoking the 25th Amendment.

“It would be really quite fascinating to have the ability to trust those individuals who have been part of his administration, who have been complacent in his activities to take the lead and invoke the 25th Amendment,” Omar said. “As we’ve just learned moments before I got on with you, Vice President Mike Pence has said he has no interest in invoking the 25th Amendment.”

“So we are left with figuring out what it means for us as members of Congress, how to fulfill our oath to protect our nation,” she added. She was then asked what had changed since the last time Trump was impeached that might lead to a Senate conviction.

“A lot has changed,” Omar continued. “We have just witnessed the president take part in an attempted coup and there is a clear understanding that he poses an imminent threat to not just our democracy but to our republic and to the world and having him remain in office any longer is not in the best interests of our nation.”
