Vice President Mike Pence sent a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday night informing her that he will not invoke the 25th Amendment and remove President Donald Trump from power.

Trump was expected not to invoke the 25th Amendment and his formal letter now sets in motion the full impeachment vote in the House of Representatives on Wednesday.

Pence urged Pelosi and members of Congress to avoid actions that will further divide the country.

“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,” Pence wrote. “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.”

Pence added: “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.”

“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.”
