(ConservativeInsider.org) – Democrats will try just about anything to get President Donald Trump out of office, even with less than two weeks left in his first term. This week, the Left pressured Vice President Mike Pence to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. But, Pence made clear his decision to stand beside both the president and the Constitution and not invoke the 25th Amendment.
On Tuesday, January 12, Pence published a letter dismissing Democrat efforts to have him remove Trump from office. He called out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for her hypocrisy on how the 25th Amendment should be enacted. Months ago, she wanted to invoke the Amendment “based on a medical decision,” but now she’s asking to do it based on “comment and behavior” she doesn’t like.
His full explanation can be read here in his letter shared by Journalist Julie Tsirkin:
🚨 Pence responds to Pelosi on the 25th amendment: “I do not believe that such a course of action is in the best interest of our Nation or consistent with our Constitution.”

Pence urged Pelosi to “lower the temperature and unite the country.” Hopefully, his encouragement for Democrats to set aside party politics for a moment and reunite America will take hold and allow us to move forward as one nation.
