That would allow them to declare President Trump unfit for office and Pence would then become acting President for the final two weeks of their term. But for that to happen, the vice president would not only need to be on board but would also need a majority of the president's cabinet officials to agree the he is unfit for office in order to seize power from him. "The president can counter and say, 'No, I'm actually fine' and if he does submit that statement in writing, he maintains power of the presidency. The vice president and the Cabinet can re-counter and say, 'No, we actually believe you are unfit,’" says Pace University Professor Kiku Huckle.

Fox Business featured Criminal Science Professor Darrin Porcher in "Riots at US Capitol exposed ‘epic failures of security,’ ex-NYPD lieutenant says"

Porcher explained on FOX Business’ “Mornings with Maria” how Capitol Hill security will change after the rioting erupted Wednesday.

“It is going to bifurcate into two different components. Granted, you’ll have a probably more robust personnel component, but, in addition to that, you’re going to invoke a series of technological innovations that can assess what is going on outside of the Capitol,” Porcher said.

Porcher went on to say although cameras surveil the Capitol building, "it begs the question of us needing more technology to assist the personnel that was on the ground."
