In a vote of 223-205, the House of Representatives on Tuesday night approved a resolution calling on Vice President Pence to remove President Trump from office by invoking the 25 Amendment.
The resolution — introduced by Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) — is highly symbolic, as it does not bind Pence to take action, but it looks to pressure the vice president.
- Simultaneously, the House is moving forward with impeachment and will hold a vote to impeach Trump for a second time on Wednesday.
- Pence said on Tuesday that he will not invoke the 25th Amendment t0 remove Trump from office because it would « set a terrible precedent. »
- An Axios-Ipsos poll taken last week found that 8 in 10 Republicans opposed removing Trump from office for inciting his supporters to storm the Capitol.
