Former Israeli ambassador to the US Michael Oren estimates that Democrats will push ahead with an effort to remove President Donald Trump from office and predicts more chaos in the coming weeks.
“You can’t have a president who betrayed American democracy remaining in office, even for an hour,” the US-born Oren tells the Kan broadcaster.
“In the coming period, there will be instability and much agitation in the US,” he foretells.
A Vanity Fair report claims that Trump loyalists are turning away from him and some Republicans may even support an invocation of the 25th Amendment to remove him from power, though the move would need to be backed by Vice President Mike Pence for them to move ahead.
“Even Stephen Miller told one person close to the White House that it was a terrible day,” the report says.
The report also claims that White House Counsel Pat Cipollone has told administration officials to stay away from Trump to avoid the possibility of being prosecuted for treason in the aftermath.
Both Trump and his chief of staff Mark Meadows were unreachable during the rioting, according to the report.
