“I voted to call upon the Vice President to activate the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office and protect our democracy. If he refuses, tomorrow, we move to impeach,” Soto said on Twitter.
“Impeachment would only pour fuel on the fire, further entrenching our nation’s divides. It’s critical we do our part to help facilitate a peaceful transition of power and that’s why I voted against calling for the 25th Amendment today on the House floor,” Waltz said on Twitter.
Pence said he would not do what resolution 21 asked.
