He said that Pence told him he would not support the 25th Amendment and that his support would be necessary for such an effort to succeed.
“I spoke with the Vice President and told him that I was there to do everything he wanted and needed to do or help, and he made it clear that he was not going that direction or that way. Were,” DeVos told USA Today. “I spoke with coworkers. I wanted to get a better understanding of the law myself and see if it applied in this case. There were more than a few people who had those conversations internally.”
DeVos said she ultimately determined that using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump was almost certainly not going to be a viable option and resigned later that day.
DeVos did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Nation World News.
In his interview with USA Today, DeVos stopped directly blaming Trump for the violence, but said he could have done more to stop it.
“When I looked at what was happening on January 6th and didn’t see the president stepping up and doing what he could to back it up or slow it down or really address the situation, it was clear to me that I could ‘don’t continue,’ she said in the interview.
