Vice President Pence will not be invoking the 25th amendment according to a letter sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday.
In his statement, Pence says, “With just eight days left in the President’s term, you and the Democratic Caucus are demanding that the Cabinet and I invoke the 25th Amendment. I do not believe that such a course of action is in the best interest of our Nation or consistent with our Constitution.”
He added that the 25th amendment “is not a means of punishment or usurpation” and invoking it “in such a manner would set a terrible precedent.”
