Crist was uncharacteristically blunt in a Twitter post late Wednesday afternoon, in the immediate aftermath of Trump supporters-turned-domestic terrorists rioting and storming the nation’s Capitol. "The 25th Amendment allows for the removal of a President. It's time to remove the President," tweeted Crist in full.
The 25th Amendment to the Constitution allows for the president of the United States to be removed from office if he is deemed unfit for office by both houses of Congress. The vice president would then assume office.

Crist, a former Republican, is among the first in Congress to call for the 25th Amendment to be invoked.
