Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said this weekend that members of the Trump administration have a “constitutional responsibility” to remove the president from office if they decide he is unable to fulfil his obligations.

In a press conference after a rally in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday, Warren responded to former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who claimed that officials in the Trump Administration had discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office after he fired former FBI Director James Comey.

“My point here is that if they believe that Donald Trump cannot fulfill the obligations of his office, then they have a constitutional responsibility to invoke the 25th amendment,” said Warren, who is running for the Democratic nomination in the 2020 presidential race, according to The Nevada Independent. “Their loyalty under law is not to him personally. It is to the Constitution of the United States and to the people of United States.”

“Washington works great for those with money and power,” Warren said during the rally. “It works great for those who can hire an army of lobbyists and lawyers. When we have a government that only works for the rich and the powerful, that is corruption plain and simple, and we got to call it out for what it is.”

“Start with the fact that the Trump administration is the most corrupt administration in living memory,” the senator continued. “But we’ve had problems in Washington for a long, long time, so how about some structural change?”
