House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has given Pence a 24-hour ultimatum to invoke the 25th Amendment or else she will impeach Trump from Tuesday.
I want to draw your immediate attention to the action to be taken tomorrow morning when Majority Leader Hoyer seeks unanimous consent to raise the Raskin resolution. This resolution calls on the Vice President to summon and mobilize the Cabinet to activate the 25th Amendment to declare the President unable to perform the duties of his office, after which the Vice President would immediately exercise the powers of Acting President. The text of the resolution is available here.
If we do not receive unanimous consent, this bill is scheduled to be introduced the next day. We call the vice president to respond within 24 hours.
Then we will proceed to the presentation of the impeachment legislation.
Republicans rejected a unanimous request for Pelosi’s consent Monday morning to vote on the 25th Amendment resolution.
