Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said President Donald Trump should be prosecuted and that "nothing is off the table" in an interview with 60 Minutes to be televised Sunday.

Pelosi and fellow Democrats have called for Trump's impeachment in the aftermath of Wednesday’s riot at the Capitol. 

"Sadly, the person that's running the Executive branch is a deranged, unhinged, dangerous president of the United States," Pelosi said in an excerpt aired Friday on the "CBS Evening News." 

"And we're only a number of days until we can be protected from him. But he has done something so serious that there should be prosecution against him."

Demonstrators protesting the presidential election results stormed the Capitol building during a joint session of Congress that met to certify the Electoral College votes. Earlier in the day, Trump addressed a rally of supporters and told them, "We will never give up. We will never concede." 

The president and his supporters have said alleged voter fraud resulted in Joe Biden winning the election. Biden will be inaugurated on Jan. 20.

Pelosi, speaking with correspondent Lesley Stahl, said action should be taken against Trump despite only days remaining for his administration.

The 25th Amendment allows for removing the president from office if the vice president and a majority of the president’s cabinet or Congress agree to the action. Vice President Mike Pence was said to be opposed to invoking the amendment.

It was suggested to Pelosi the 25th Amendment was off the table.

"No, it isn't,” she said. “Nothing is off the table."

Three House Democrats said they plan to introduce an article of impeachment against Trump on Monday for incitement of insurrection.
