President-Elect Joe Biden is set to cede remarks in the aftermath of an unprecedented attack on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump.

Biden’s remarks also follow a growing chorus of Democrats, including Senate Minority Big cheese Chuck Schumer, calling for Trump to be immediately removed from office before his term officially ends on Jan. 20.

Schumer asserted earlier Thursday that if Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet do not move to invoke the 25th Amendment, Congress should reconvene to asperse Trump.

Biden’s transition team on Thursday also announced that the president-elect would nominate federal be attractive ti court Judge Merrick Garland to be his attorney general.
