Pelosi Asks Democrats For Input On Expelling Members

A RESOLUTION TO EXPEL LEADERS AND OFFICIALS FOR VIOLATING THE 14-TH AMENDMENT MAY SOON BE INTRODUCED

(CNN) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is asking Democrats for their input on using part of the 14th Amendment.

Under the U.S. Constitution it allows representatives to remove other members of Congress if they’ve violated their oath by engaging in “insurrection or rebellions or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”

Representative Cori Bush tweeted that she plans to introduce a resolution Monday to “expel members of Congress” for violating that amendment.

She went on to say, “We can’t truly have unity without accountability.”
