Pence formally rejects Pelosi’s attempt to invoke the 25th Amendment

Vice President Mike Pence officially rejected President Pelosi’s attempt to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office on Tuesday evening.

Pelosi is using the chaos on the U.S. Capitol last week as a pretext to remove President Trump (again) from office through impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

Protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol last week after Pence announced he would not reject Joe Biden’s fraudulent voters.

Not all of the protesters were Trump supporters, but Democrats are using the Capitol Riot as a way to misrepresent and demonize President Trump and his supporters.

Pence wrote Pelosi a letter rejecting his attempt to invoke the 25th Amendment which seeks to remedy the presidential incapacity or handicap.

“I do not believe that such a course of action is in the best interest of our nation or in accordance with our Constitution,” Pence wrote.

What the 25th Amendment says (via USA Today):

Section 1

In the event of the president’s dismissal from office, death or resignation, the vice-president becomes president.

Section 2

Whenever there is a vacancy in the post of Vice-President, the President appoints a Vice-President who takes office after confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.

Section 3

Whenever the President transmits to the Acting President of the Senate and to the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he sends them a written declaration to the contrary, these powers and duties are exercised by the vice-president as acting president.

Section 4

Whenever the Vice-President and a majority of the main leaders of the executive departments or any other body that Congress may provide by law, transmit to the Acting President of the Senate and to the President of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the The president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the vice-president immediately assumes the powers and duties of the office of interim president.

Subsequently, when the president transmits to the interim president of the Senate and to the president of the House of Representatives his written declaration that there is no incapacity, he resumes the powers and duties of his office unless the vice -president and a majority of the principal officials of the executive department or of any other body that Congress may legally provide for, within four days transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and to the President of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is not able to discharge his powers and the duties of his office. Thereupon, Congress will decide the matter, meeting within forty-eight hours for that purpose if it is not in session. If Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of this last written statement, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to meet, determines by vote of two-thirds of the two Chambers that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice-President continues to exercise the same functions as the interim president; otherwise, the president takes over the powers and duties of his office.
