House Speaker Nancy Pelosi prefaced a planned meeting with the House Democratic meeting Friday with a letter outlining where the House is out now and dropping this bombshell: “This morning, I spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike. The situation of this unhinged President could not be more dangerous, and we must do everything that we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy.”

Given that Vice President Pence has disappeared, someone had to do that. Speaking of Pence, Pelosi writes “Yesterday, Leader Schumer and I placed a call with Vice President Pence, and we still hope to hear from him as soon as possible with a positive answer as to whether he and the Cabinet will honor their oath to the Constitution and the American people.” He. Still. Hasn’t. Returned. Their. Call. “If the President does not leave office imminently and willingly, the Congress will proceed with our action,” she continued. That has to happen sooner rather than later, and it seems like that’s the energy Democrats have going into this meeting.

  1. Of course Pence will do nothing. His words, actions and behavior have proven him to be a craven coward, berift of any honor or integrity.😡🤬🤬

  2. Hopefully, she and many others are being protected by independent agents. Not the hidden white-supremacists all over the Capitol, Congress, the police etc. If not now to take it seriously, when?

  3. Pence has abetted Trump for four years. He is no more fit to serve than Trump. Certainly impeach Trump as Pence will not further fulfill his duty to country by enacting the 25th amendment, not that he alone is the only one who can or Trumps cabinet many of whom are cowardly resigning. Congress can convene a special counsel. Just Get Trump the hell out. Put Nancy in charge. Don’t recognize any pardons regarding Trump, given or received. Any one in Congress who objected to the ceremonial vote count needs to resign, should be prosecuted for abetting a coup and Trump. Punish to fullest extent of law or this will come back and kill our democracy. “A Republic if we can keep it,” Ben Franklin.
