PORTLAND, Ore. — Republican U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, who represents Southwest Washington, said she will vote to impeach President Donald Trump after last week’s deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters.

“The President of the United States incited a riot aiming to halt the peaceful transfer of power from one administration to the next,” Herrera Beutler said, in part, in a statement Tuesday night.

Herrera Beutler, who has represented Washington’s 3rd District since 2011, joins a handful of GOP representatives to publicly say they will vote to impeach the president.

Vice President Mike Pence said he would not invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. The Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives has pressed forward on impeaching President Trump for a second time.
