Mike Pence Letter to Nancy Pelosi

Here is the text of the letter:

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi
Speaker of the House of Representatives
Washington, D.C. 20515
Dear Madam Speaker:
January 12, 2021
Every American was shocked and saddened by the attack on our Nation’s Capitol last week, and I am grateful for the leadership that you and other congressional leaders provided in reconvening Congress to complete the people’s business on the very same day. It was a moment that demonstrated to the American people the unity that is still possible in Congress when it is needed most.
But now, 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. Last week, I did not
yield to pressure to exert power beyond my constitutional authority to determine the outcome of the
election, and I will not now yield to efforts in the House of Representatives to play political games at a time so serious in the life of our nation.
As you know full well, the 25th Amendment was designed to address Presidential incapacity or
disability. Just a few months ago, when you introduced legislation to create a 25th Amendment
Commission, you said, “[a] President’s fitness for office must be determined by science and facts .”
You said then that we must be “[v]ery respectful of not making a judgment on the basis of a comment or behavior that we don’t like, but based on a medical decision.” Madam Speaker, you were right. Under our Constitution, the 25th Amendment is not a means of punishment or usurpation. Invoking the 25th Amendment in such a manner would set a terrible precedent.
After the horrific events of this last week, our Administration’s energy is directed to ensuring an
orderly transition. The Bible says that “for everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven . … a time to heal, … and a time to build up.” That time is now. 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 to heal.
I urge you and every member of Congress to avoid actions that would further divide and inflame the
passions of the moment. Work with us to lower the temperature and unite our country as we prepare to inaugurate President-elect Joe Biden as the next President of the United States. I pledge to you that I will continue to do my part to work in good faith with the incoming administration to ensure an orderly transition of power. So help me God.

This is clearly a headfake to distract from ZOMFG PERMANENT TRUMP DICTATORSHIP!

It’s such a shame that Mike Pence’s role in history will be trumped.

Welcome back to Level Zero.

Choices. When you have access to the nuclear codes choices come with some pretty severe consequences. It’s a real shame that he doesn’t see a President calling his VP a traitor and calling for his lynching as more than just a “comment or behavior we don’t like”.

At the very least, you and I are on the same wavelength.

Hallelujah, Michael.

The GOP is making the Dems do their dirty work for them. Conservatives want rid of him as much as the next man, but too few have the courage of their convictions

I understand why VPOTUS will not invoke the 24th

But McConnel slow walking the process for political gain is shameful

Ya’ll need a quick trial followed by quick execution

None of that surprises me coming from Mike Pence.

Umm. No.

Is that fake news? REally? that old, uber-white privileged white woman from a privileged background ?

Was gonna take on horn boy?

She’s delusional. I mean, sure, fight for your life, yeah, but, effectively?

It’s political theatre. It’s not even worth examining.

No. It was like 100k militia.

Edit: She said she would fight, not win.

Fight not win, I kinda wrote that too.

Reading comprehension much ?

WHAT? Political Theater?

OMG, dude, you gotta be kidding!

That little biotch could kick ass on her back on a concrete slab surrounded by 20 insurrectionists!

She’d have pulled spider guard! Guaranteed!

I take it back. I’ll put $5 on buffalo bob in the 1st round and another $5 on Pelosi if she can make it to round 2. She’s got a solid chance at a successful defense if he can’t find his meth pipe and a loose wad of tinfoil.

She’d be better off offering to blow him.

And then biting his dick off.

That’s how she does politics anyway, amirite?

Probably depends on how recently he shot up with the meth instead of smoking it. That or he’s gonna need some industrial power beer goggles.

He has to have all natural meth, man. It’s in his contract.

Come on , you know you’d take a BJ from her.

You are so fucking ugly and pitiful, after all.

Right?

No. I’m ugly but I am not desperate.

Edit: Or a necrophiliac.
