House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s letter to fellow Democrats about her plans to remove President Trump from office have been released.
In her letter, Pelosi indicates she will give Vice President Pence 24 hours to activate the 25th Amendment to initiate removing Trump.
If Pence refuses to invoke the 25th Amendment, the House will begin impeachment proceedings later this week.
She writes “In protecting our Constitution and our Democracy, we will act with urgency, because this President represents an imminent threat to both.”
Pelosi also says “as the days go by, the horror of the ongoing assault on our democracy perpetrated by this President is intensified and so is the immediate need for action.”
