WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday vowed to uphold American history and ensure a safe transition of power to President-elect Joe Biden, eight days after supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump laid siege to the U.S. Capitol. And as the president made clear yesterday, we are committed to an orderly transition and to a safe inauguration. The American people deserve nothing less,” Pence said during his first public event since the attack that left five people dead. During the attack, some of Trump’s supporters discussed assassinating Pence for being a traitor. Trump and Pence sought to heal their rift during a meeting in the Oval Office on Monday, but aides say they were deeply disappointed by the way Trump had treated Pence.

Four other Republican House members, Jaime Herrera Beutler, John Katko, Adam Kinzinger and Fred Upton, also said they supported impeachment. Pelosi on Tuesday named nine impeachment managers, who would present the House’s case for impeachment during a Senate trial. If Trump is impeached by the House, he would have a trial in the Senate to determine his guilt. Democrats could also use an impeachment trial to push through a vote blocking Trump from running for office again. Rather than a two-thirds vote, a simple Senate majority is needed to disqualify Trump from future office.

Pence says he opposes removing Trump with the 25th Amendment

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vice President Mike Pence told House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday that he is opposed to invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office after Trump’s supporters laid siege to the U.S. Capitol last week. Pence and Trump had their first conversation at the White House on Monday evening after days of silence following the riot and Trump’s public rebuke of Pence for not seeking to block the congressional certification of Biden’s Electoral College win. Trump, who has sought unsuccessfully to overturn his Nov. 3 election loss, had pressured Pence to intervene in the certification process, and some of Trump’s supporters in the assault discussed assassinating Pence for being a traitor. Invoking the 25th Amendment as a means of “punishment or usurpation” would “set a terrible precedent,” Pence said. Removal of a president under the 25th Amendment requires a declaration by the vice president and the majority of the president’s Cabinet.

Democrats moved forward on an impeachment vote after a effort to persuade Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to remove Trump was rejected by Pence on Tuesday evening. Republican leaders in the House did not urge their members to vote against impeaching Trump, saying it was a matter of individual conscience. At a meeting to set the rules for Wednesday’s impeachment vote, Democratic Representative David Cicilline told the House Rules Committee that the impeachment drive had the support of 217 lawmakers - enough to impeach Trump. Democrats could also use an impeachment trial to push through a vote blocking Trump from running for office again. Rather than a two-thirds vote, a simple Senate majority is needed to disqualify Trump from future office.

“Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election,” Trump, a Republican, tweeted on Dec. 20. Speaking at what could be his last rally as the sitting president, Trump exhorted his supporters “to fight.”“We will never give up, we will never concede,” Trump said, delighting the crowd by calling Democratic victories the product of what he called “explosions of bullshit.”“Bullshit! About 50 minutes into the speech, some of his supporters, waving Trump flags, began heading toward Capitol Hill, where unprecedented mayhem ensued. It was a landslide election,” Trump said, repeating familiar falsehoods. But while Trump was still speaking, Pence released a lengthy statement saying he would carry out his constitutional duty to certify the vote.

Slideshow ( 5 images )Trump supporters overturned barricades and clashed with police on the U.S. Capitol grounds and streamed inside the building. The demonstrations flared as lawmakers met inside to formally certify Biden’s victory over Trump in the Nov. 3 election. A band of Republican lawmakers quickly challenged the results, first from the election battleground state of Arizona won by Biden. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer called the challenges “an attempted coup” and said, “The Congress does not determine the outcome of an election. You don’t concede when there’s theft involved.”Trump in his speech applied fresh pressure on Pence to try to reverse the election results.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Despite growing pressure from President Donald Trump to help overturn his election loss, Vice President Mike Pence plans to stick to his ceremonial duties when presiding in Congress on Wednesday, advisers said. J. Scott Applewhite/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoTrump ramped up pressure on Pence on Tuesday to block Congress’s certification of the November election results in an ongoing attempt to stay in power, after dozens of lawsuits by his campaign challenging election results had failed in U.S. courts. Current and former White House aides said the vice president plans to perform his ceremonial role. One Trump adviser told Reuters the president has told others he would like Pence to fight harder for him. The vice president has sought, so far, to express his support without repeating the president’s false claims about the election.

“On the first day of early voting during the general election, there were people lined up long before the polls opened. In the November general election, 1.78 million absentee ballots were requested and 1.32 million were returned and accepted, according to the U.S. More than 200,000 Georgians have already voted by mail, according to McDonald’s findings, raising expectations for a mammoth runoff turnout of between 3.5 million and 4 million voters. Just over 5 million people voted in the general election, about 1.3 million by absentee ballot. Monday’s early voting coincides with an Electoral College vote that would make Biden’s victory over Trump official.

SEE NEW POSTSTop Georgia Republican officials buck Trump's call to push legislators to overturn Biden victory WASHINGTON — Georgia’s Republican leaders poured cold water on any hopes of convening a special session of the General Assembly to override the state’s election results and select presidential electors in favor of President Trump. Pence joined in on that message Friday, arguing that a Republican Senate majority could be the party’s “last line of defense” against Democrats in the House and White House. Georgia Democratic Senate candidates Raphael Warnock, left, and Jon Ossoff hold a campaign rally in Marietta on Nov. 15, 2020.

FILE PHOTO: U.S. President Donald Trump participates in a medal ceremony in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, U.S. December 3, 2020. “If he spends most of his time talking about the two candidates, how wonderful they are, what they’ve achieved,” he could help, said Matt Towery, a former Georgia Republican legislator who is now a political analyst and pollster. On Friday, Trump posted on Twitter that the best way to ensure Perdue and Loeffler win is to uncover fraud and declare him the winner. Trump’s attacks could hurt the senators with voters in two ways, said Alan Abramowitz, a political science professor at Atlanta’s Emory University. By undermining faith in the process, Trump could convince some of his backers there is no point in voting in January.

The state’s two competitive contests will determine which party gets majority control of the Senate. Democrats, who netted only one Republican Senate seat nationwide in the Nov. 3 election, need win both to give them 50 of the chamber’s 100 seats, with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris wielding the tie-breaking vote. “Georgia, I got back on the bus today because we need you to stay in the fight,” Pence told cheering supporters at an outdoor event in Canton. Pence did not mention Biden in his remarks, portraying Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi instead as political villains. “Like all of you, I’m here because I stand with President Trump,” Pence told the crowd gathered at an agricultural center in Gainesville.
