WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Carlos Gimenez (FL-26) issued the following statement after voting against the resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to trigger the 25th amendment:
“Congress should be holding thorough investigations into the insurrection on Capitol Hill by domestic terrorists.
I cannot earnestly support a non-binding resolution that would have no effect in getting us closer to the truth or help heal our nation. Vice President Mike Pence has already informed Speaker Pelosi he will not invoke the 25th amendment, rendering this resolution useless and highlighting an intent to plunge this Congress into petulant political bickering.
We must stop the political charades and do the work that needs to be done to get the whole truth through the proper process. Facts matter and are worth the patience.”
