The Vermont House has passed a resolution condemning the breach of the U.S. Capitol and demanding that President Donald Trump resign or be removed from office.

House Speaker Jill Krowinski is a Democrat who said in a written statement that Thursday’s resolution leaves no doubt as to where the General Assembly stands on the violent insurrection that occurred at the United States Capitol.

A violent mob loyal to President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday in an attempt to overturn election results that were in favor of Democrat Joe Biden.
