Another Florida congressperson has called for the 25th Amendment to be invoked to remove President Trump from office. And it is Central Florida's U.S. house representative Stephanie Murphy, D-Winter Park.

On Thursday afternoon, Murphy posted on her Twitter account that "the President incited a violent insurrection — proof he's unable to uphold the Constitution."



"The 25th Amendment should be invoked & the President removed to ensure a peaceful transition of power," said Murphy.
Murphy, a centrist Democrat who leads the Blue Dog Coalition for the 116th Congress, joins a growing number of members of Congress — including U.S. house leadership — calling for the president to be removed from office via the 25th Amendment.
