U.S. House of Representatives

House Floor Activity


On Sunday, January 10, Speaker Pelosi sent a dear colleague letter highlighting the plan for the week ahead.

I want to call to your immediate attention the action to be taken tomorrow morning when Majority Leader Hoyer will request Unanimous Consent to bring up the Raskin resolution.  This resolution calls on the Vice President to convene and mobilize the Cabinet to activate the 25th Amendment to declare the President incapable of executing the duties of his office, after which the Vice President would immediately exercise powers as acting President. The text of the resolution can be found here.

If we do not receive Unanimous Consent, this legislation is planned to be brought up on the Floor the following day. We are calling on the Vice President to respond within 24 hours. 

Next, we will proceed with bringing impeachment legislation to the Floor.

  1. Res. ___ Calling on Vice President Michael R. Pence to convene and mobilize the principal officers of the executive departments of the Cabinet to activate section 4 of the 25th Amendment to declare President Donald J. Trump incapable of executing the duties of his office and to immediately exercise powers as acting President. [PDF]
