Posted on 01/10/2021 4:09:53 PM PST by McGruff
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Sunday called on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment.
The announcement comes as a growing number of Congressmembers have called for President Donald Trump to be removed from office.
Below is the text of a letter Pelosi sent to her Democrat collogues:
Dear Democratic Colleague,
On this Sunday, as we pray that God will continue to Bless America, I write to inform you of our next actions, which will be made with the great solemnity that this moment requires.
I want to call to your immediate attention the action to be taken tomorrow morning, when Majority Leader Hoyer will request Unanimous Consent to bring up the Raskin resolution. This resolution calls on the Vice President to convene and mobilize the Cabinet to activate the 25th Amendment to declare the President incapable of executing the duties of his office, after which the Vice President would immediately exercise powers as acting President. The text of the resolution can be found here.
If we do not receive Unanimous Consent, this legislation is planned to be brought up on the Floor the following day. We are calling on the Vice President to respond within 24 hours.
Next, we will proceed with bringing impeachment legislation to the Floor.
In protecting our Constitution and our Democracy, we will act with urgency, because this President represents an imminent threat to both. As the days go by, the horror of the ongoing assault on our democracy perpetrated by this President is intensified and so is the immediate need for action.
I look forward to our Caucus call tomorrow. I am grateful to all Members for the suggestions, observations and input that you have been sending. Your views on the 25th Amendment, 14th Amendment Section 3 and impeachment are valued as we continue. I am answering your communications in chronological order and will do so into the night.
Thank you for your patriotism.
That is insurrection.
Who died and left her boss?
I think it’s bloviating for their base.
Somebody sounds seriously unstable and needs to be removed from office and it’s not Donald Trump.
We should be camped out in DC as a show of support for our President. These people are a disgrace to mankind.
Like this hasn’t happened before.
Nancy, go for it.
Kind of like “Lock Her Up!”
"Et tu, Pence?"
Nancy is scared of something. Where is your laptop Nancy? LOL
She is scared as hell about something. This isn’t normal. Trump is already (supposedly) on his way out.
This is sick she is calling for the 25th Amendment to be used in a completely illegal way.
Don’t people see the Constitution and all our Freedoms will be gone with these pigs?
I get the feeling that Pelosi and them are reading from “West Wing” scripts that were rejected because they were too outlandish.
I Triple Dog Dare You, Nancy!
If anyone has done something to be impeached it is Sniffy.
This carries all the same weighty legal authority as the Congressional declaration of July 30th as National Cheesecake Day.
This tool's son committed suicide ten days ago and this is what he's focused on. No wonder the kid didn't want to live.
Just like every other stunt, it’s a stunt. They’re going to keep pulling the “punish Trump and anyone who ever was nice to him” as long as they can.
Once they don’t have Trump to “kick around anymore” they are going to have to govern, and one of the few things they share and that is holding their various factions together is a shared hatred of Trump.
