Democrats will move to pressure vice president Mike Pence to invoke the 25th amendment and remove Donald Trump from office. This seems ridiculous considering Trump has a mere 9 days left as president. So the real question should be: why bother?
If Joe Biden won a “free and fair election” and Trump has said that an “orderly” transfer of power will occur, why would democrats even need to waste their time trying to remove him from office? According to the Wall Street Journal, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she will introduce a resolution on Monday; “We will act with urgency.”
Mr. Pence isn’t expected to move forward with a 25th Amendment process, people familiar with his thinking said.

“In protecting our Constitution and our Democracy, we will act with urgency, because this President represents an imminent threat to both,” Pelosi said in a letter to her Democratic colleagues, according to CNN. “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.”
No matter which articles you read, the only reason to push through impeachment in the last 9 days of Trump’s administration is his “inciting” of the riots and protests on January 6th at the Capitol. Again, with only 9 days to go, there’s almost nothing Trump can do at this time and the social media giants have already taken out his means of communicating with the public.
Democrats are justifying the unprecedented push for a second impeachment on the grounds that after his most flagrant abuse of power yet, Trump presents a stark danger to the country and the world and must be removed immediately. Another motivating factor is that a conviction in a Senate trial would likely bar Trump from ever seeking public office again. They parry critiques that such a late-term impeachment would be academic by arguing that Trump’s crime against the Constitution cannot go unpunished. –CNN
If there is success in the impeachment of Trump, he will not be able to seek any public office ever again. Perhaps that’s the goal. However, we all know elections are selections (that should be obvious by now) and they’ll put whoever they want in power, so what’s the point?
This might be all a distraction to cause more division. Keep your eyes on issues such as this. There’s a bigger reason for the impeachment of Trump than they are telling us. There’s a reason and we should be asking these questions.
