Pence on McCabe: I've Never Heard Any Discussion Of 25th Amendment, "Absurd"


Vice President Mike Pence said in an interview Thursday that he has never heard of any discussion to use the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office and called the suggestion "absurd." Pence was responding to a claim made by former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe in an interview with CBS News.

"There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment," CBS News correspondent Scott Pelley, who conducted the interview with McCabe, said Thursday on 'CBS This Morning.'

"I never heard of it. I never heard any discussion of the 25th Amendment. Frankly, I find any suggestion of it to be absurd," Pence said in an interview with NBC's Andrea Mitchell

"This president has been producing for the American people and I couldn't be more proud to stand with him and the words or the writings of a disgraced FBI agent won't change that fact for the American people," the vice president said.

"I've never heard any discussion of the 25th Amendment by members of this government and I would never expect to," Pence said.
