18 US Code §2383 Rebellion or insurrection
Gohmert is not only a sitting Congressman, he's also an officer of the court, a former judge.— Eric Garland (@ericgarland) January 2, 2021
He is directly advocating violent rebellion. This appears the clearest possible violation of: 18 U.S. Code § 2383 - Rebellion or insurrection pic.twitter.com/mbdjPTxPt9
There's understandably been a lot of talk today about the 25th Amendment and the Impeachment Clause. We should also focus on Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which disqualifies those who engage in insurrection against the Constitution of the United States from holding office. pic.twitter.com/Cr4yX5mWRY— Deepak Gupta (@deepakguptalaw) January 6, 2021
** Pence still refuses to invoke the 25th, even after Trump put him and his family in danger in the Capitol invasion**
Also, Trump's lawyer, Lin Wood has made repeated calls for Pence's execution

And he’s still free today.

Have no pity for @VP. He is a corrupt fool who thought he could play a gangster to his benefit. Pence began his career losing a Congressional race after he was caught stealing from his campaign to pay his mortgage. Now he ends his career getting caught trying to steal a country. https://t.co/2Yj0vitHpe— stuart stevens (@stuartpstevens) January 7, 2021

14th Amendment - Wow, Pelosi is considering the 14th amendment too
That will be the best for our democracy if she uses it to unseat the GOP traitors that engaged in insurrection
I just introduced H.Res. 25.— Cori Bush (@CoriBush) January 11, 2021
It would, under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, investigate and expel the GOP members of Congress who attempted to overturn the election and incited a white supremacist attack.
Call your rep to sign on. We can’t have unity without accountability.
Wow, in letter to her caucus, @SpeakerPelosi raises the 14th amendment, which refers to not allowing people to serve who engaged in insurrection against the US, or gave aid and comfort to those who did.— Eric Schmeltzer 🇺🇸 (@JustSchmeltzer) January 11, 2021
Targeting a lot of GOP members for expulsion.
Here is the letter. Last paragraph pic.twitter.com/2Afg2OJQ46— Eric Schmeltzer 🇺🇸 (@JustSchmeltzer) January 11, 2021
