Vice President Mike Pence ruled out invoking the 25th Amendment in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday.

Pence said that he did not believe invoking the amendment to remove President Trump eight days before the end of his term was “in the best interest of our Nation or consistent with our Constitution.”

He urged Congress to focus on President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration and to avoid impeaching Trump.

“In the midst of a global pandemic, economic hardship for millions of Americans and the tragic events of January 6th now is the time for us to come together, now is the time for us to heal,” Pence wrote.

“I urge you and every member of Congress to avoid actions that would further divide and inflame the passions of the moment.”
