Senators chuck schumer and nancy pelosi are talking about impeachment, and, invoking the 25th amendment.

And, a former local congressman and political scientist are weighing in, too.

But one former congressman says, that matters, too.

Presumptive senate majority leader, chuck schumer, wants vice president mike pence to invoke the 25th amendment to remove president trump from office, following wednesday's riots in the nation's capitol where schumer says the president incited an insurrection against the united states.

New york senator, kirsten gillibrand, says she's all for invoking the 25th or impeachment, but doesn't expect either will happen .
