House Speaker Nancy Pelosi holds a briefing a day after pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol to disrupt the confirmation of President-elect Joe Biden’s election win.

UPDATE: Pelosi has called on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office.

“If the Vice President and the cabinet do not act, Congress may be prepared to move forward with impeachment,” Pelosi said during a briefing Thursday afternoon.
