In the aftermath of the events on January 6, Democrats have been scrambling to get rid of Trump once and for all. Although he’s leaving office in a week, they are hoping to erase any trace of his influence in their precious swamp.
The demand that Mike Pence remove Trump via the 25th Amendment wasn’t really about getting Trump out of office. It was an attempt to ensure Trump won’t be able to run again in 2024. By invoking those measures, it would have ensured Trump could never again become president.
It was a longshot, yes. The amendment isn’t just a “get-Trump-out-of-the-White-House” card. It takes the cooperation of the vice president and a majority of the president’s cabinet. Even then, if the president opposes it, the process is not a done deal.
Democrats though, since Pence abandoned Trump during Congress’s certification of the election, that he would happily remove Trump if they demanded it. Plenty of Republicans have folded in recent days, unwilling to stand up for a man who ensured their party’s survival. But Pence struck back, using Pelosi’s own words against her.
Vice President Mike Pence used House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) words against her in a letter on Tuesday evening explaining why he will not invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office…
Pence noted that [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” and that now is that time for America. Pence invited Pelosi to help unite and heal the country, which was a theme of Democrat Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.
“I urge you and every member of Congress to avoid actions that would further divide and inflame the passions of the moment,” the letter concluded. [Source: Daily Wire]
Pelosi herself quoted this same Bible passage in June, demanding that Trump and Republicans help “heal” the nation after a period of upheaval and division. Yet now, when Pelosi has secured another term as speaker and has a Democrat president to work with, she is seeking to divide the country like never before.
Doesn’t she realize that by attacking Trump, she’s attacking the millions of Americans who support him? Why don’t Democrats see that blaming Trump for one instance of violence will not “heal” the nation, which they claim they are so eager to do?
After every election, the winners claim they want to bring the country together. So far, Democrats have done nothing but instigate more anger, divisiveness, and resentment. Their attempts to remove Trump from office have nothing to do with healing, but destroying.
Perhaps that’s what they really want?
