US media reports say that several cabinet secretaries have been discussing invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office.
The unsourced reports, on CNN and NBC, say that they have not formally presented the plan to Vice President Mike Pence.
However, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Pence, calling on him to invoke the Amendment in the wake of the attack on Congress today.
They accused Trump of egging on the mob, who they accused of insurrection.
