House approves largely symbolic resolution calling to invoke 25th Amendment, Pence rejects

The House of Representatives approved a motion to call on Vice President Mike Pence to strip President Trump of his executive powers. The vote took place Tuesday with heated debate on both sides of the aisle.

This largely symbolic move can not force the Vice President to action, but appears to have been approved in an effort to pressure him.

Democrats are pushing for the President’s removal due to the infamous protest on Capitol Hill. They are blaming him for the actions of a few bad actors despite his calls for them to go home in peace.

“We don’t like it at all: incitement to insurrection, treasonous activity,” stated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “And if you are associating yourself with that as the proper execution of the President’s duties, you are associating yourself with sedition and treason.”

President Trump slammed the removal efforts by suggesting Democrats are further dividing the nation. He also said this is just a continuation of “the greatest and most vicious witch hunt in the history of our country.”

“…is causing tremendous anger and division and pain…far greater than most people will ever understand, which is very dangerous for the USA,” stated the President. “Especially at this very tender time.”.............
I BELIEVE in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a REPUBLIC; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states, a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of FREEDOM, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it IS my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.
