Vice President Mike Pence said that he refuses to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office, saying that it would set a “terrible precedent.”. . .

“With just eight days left in the President’s term, you and the Democratic Caucus are demanding that the Cabinet and I invoke the 25th Amendment,” he wrote. “I do not believe that such a course of action is in the best interest of our Nation or consistent with our Constitution.” . . .

letter 25th

. . . “As you know full well, the 25th Amendment was designed to address Presidential incapacity or disability,” Pence wrote in his letter, later adding, “Under our Constitution, the 25th Amendment is not a means of punishment or usurpation. Invoking the 25th Amendment in such a manner would set a terrible precedent.”

Pence said that the Trump administration’s energy is now “directed to ensuring an orderly transition.”

“In the midst of a global pandemic, economic hardship for millions of Americans, and the tragic events of January 6th, now is the time for us to come together, now is the time to heal,” he wrote.

“I urge you and every member of Congress to avoid actions that would further divide and inflame the passions of the moment,” he added. “Work with us to lower the temperature and unite our country as we prepare to inaugurate President-elect Joe Biden as the next President of the United States.”

He concluded: “I pledge to you that I will continue to do my part to work in good faith with the incoming administration to ensure an orderly transition of power. So help me God.”. . .

On Jan. 7, Pelosi said that Congress may move to impeach Trump if Pence and Trump’s Cabinet do not take action. At the time, she said that Trump “clearly has indicated that over and over again,” including by allegedly “inciting sedition,” referring to the civil unrest that took place on U.S. Capitol grounds on Jan. 6.

Trump has been repeatedly calling for peace and condemned the violence that took place at and near the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, when a group of protesters breached the Capitol as lawmakers gathered in the building to count and certify electoral votes for the now-President-elect Joe Biden. . . .

One woman, Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, died that day after being shot by Capitol police inside the building.

It is unclear who instigated the breach of the building. A video of the event shows a left-wing activist encouraging and convincing Capitol police to let trespassers through at several points.

Separately, the civil unrest that broke out on Capitol grounds left at least four more people dead—three due to medical reasons, and a U.S. Capitol Police officer was confirmed dead by the department on Jan. 7, due to injuries sustained while on duty responding to riots.

Praise God Vice Pres. Pence has the stability and presence of mind to do the right thing and not pre judge President Trump of the wicked lies the democrats are telling. Further investigation has clearly shown that P. Trump is not the one who planned the invasion nor did he incite it. Antifa, the democrats arm of violance are the ones who did the breaching of the Capitol. Unfortunately weak emotional thrill seakers followed. Shame on them!!!!!! Trump supporters are not the guilty ones. The 10 GOP representatives are also to blame for following and cowtowing to the democrats for impeachment. They are betraying the American people caving in and being bullied into following the worst leadership America has ever had, democtats!!!!

Good work V.P. Pence! I fully agree with his decision. True, with just a week left of his presidency, he should serve the rest of his term and also not be impeached either.

I fully agree with Pence and hope that the Democrats will come to their senses.
Pelosi has an evil grudge against our President Trump and she should be held accountable for her actions. I personally believe she should be put out of office because of her on going hate for Trump and forgetting about what is good for the American People.
She forgets government is for the people by the people.It is not her place to to make her own rules.
GOD Bless President Trump and Vice President Pence.

I thank God VP Pence does not want to invoke the 25th Amendment to impeach President Trump. There is so much hate in these Liberals. Praying so hard for the hatred to stop!

I applaud your decision and your basis for it. I am sure this has been a difficult time for you and your family. God be with you as you complete the term with wisdom and integrity.

Thank God for you and President Trump. I am frightened by what is happening in our country. I am 84 years old and never thought I would see the day when the Christian values were ridiculed. I am praying for both your families. What is happening is so wrong!!!
