On Monday, the resolution asking Mike Pence to invoke the 25th amendment against President Trump failed.
House Republicans on Monday blocked a resolution from Democrats calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer attempted to pass the resolution through unanimous consent, but Representative Alex Mooney, a West Virginia Republican, objected, nixing the move. The House must now call a full vote on the measure in order to pass it.
Pence has not publicly indicated that he would consider invoking constitutional authority to remove the president, but he has reportedly discussed resorting to the 25th amendment… [Sources not listed.]
The resolution was blocked just as House Democrats introduced an article of impeachment against Trump, charging him with “incitement of insurrection”… [based on agitators who stormed the capitol last week, despite the fact that six months ago the same anarchy was reigning in democrat controlled cities, including Washington D.C. which were ablaze.]
The four-page article of impeachment against Trump accuses him of “inciting violence against the government of the United States” in the wake of the deadly riot.
Lawmakers also cited the 14th Amendment, which prevents those who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the U.S. from ever holding public office in the future.
Many videos have emerged showing that a number of the ‘rioters’ within the capitol were associated with Antifa, BLM and other leftist organizations.
Moreover, the timeline of the event seems inexplicable, since the ‘violence’ began before anyone listening to the President’s speech on Wednesday could have possibly gotten to the Capitol building. Moreover, a number of videos surfaced that clearly showed police waving and encouraging protestors into the building.
