Democrats Will Not Remove President Trump

Vice President Mike Pence signaled he will not invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution that allows for a removal of the President from the office

On Monday US President met with Mr. Pence, who agreed to work together for the remainder of the term, according to a senior administration official.

The discussion seems inconsistent with intense speculation in the mainstream media that Trump plans to resign before Joe Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration.

The episode excluded the prospect that Mr. Pence might act to invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, which allows the vice president and a majority of the cabinet to remove the president from office - a move encouraged by Democratic members of Congress. However Vice President Pence has privately dismissed the idea as not feasible, according to one person familiar with the matter. Nevertheless, the mainstream media withheld this information from its audience instead pushing the non-realistic idea of an impeachment.

It was the first time Trump and Pence have spoken since the president’s supporters stormed the Capitol while Pence was presiding over formal affirmation of his re-election defeat, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The two men, meeting in the Oval Office, agreed that people who broke into the Capitol don’t represent Trump’s “America First” movement and pledged to continue their work on behalf of the country for the remainder of their term, the official said. It was a good conversation in which Trump and Pence discussed the week ahead and reflected on the last four years of the administration’s work, the official added.

House Democrats are seeking to hold Trump accountable for the riot if Pence fails to act against the president. Lawmakers pushed forward on Monday with their plans to impeach Trump for a second time, introducing a resolution accusing Trump of “incitement of an insurrection".

Ms. Pelosi badly wants impeachment

The "impeachment" by the House Democrats will happen since Speaker Pelosi does not want to risk any uproar before the inauguration among the Congressmen of radical left who strengthen their presence after last elections.

Therefore Ms. Pelosi will pursue procedure, which by itself, without continuation in the Senate, is meaningless and has no power to oust President Trump.

A majority of House lawmakers have signed onto the resolution, led by Democratic Reps. David Cicilline of Rhode Island, Jamie Raskin of Maryland, and Ted Lieu of California, charging Trump with inciting the insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6.

It seeks to both remove Trump from the presidency and prevent him from ever holding office again. Cicilline said the resolution has enough support for passage, including some Republicans.
