Mike Pence Refuses to Invoke 25th Amendment

This week Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to immediately remove Donald Trump from office after he triggered the January 6th insurrection against the government after losing the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden [click here if you missed that]. 

Pence has refused...

In a move setting Trump up for a second impeachment Mike Pence sends a letter of refusal to Pelosi writing,
"I do not believe that such a course of action is in the best interest of our Nation or consistent with our Constitution. Last week, I did not yield to pressure to exert power beyond my constitutional authority to determine the outcome of the election, and I will not now yield to efforts in the House of Representatives to play political games at a time so serious in the life of our Nation."

Fun Fact: So far five Republicans have come out in favor of impeachment.
