Power

On Tuesday, the Vice President, in a letter to House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, opposed the Democrats’ demand. Pence described the pressure on him as “political games”.

“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”, he said.
