A documentary film crew captured former Vice President Mike Pence's reaction the moment he learned that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wanted him to invoke the 25th Amendment on President Trump.

Obtained by CNN, the film crew, which the House Jan. 6 Select Committee subpoenaed, got Pence on camera reacting to a draft House resolution wanting to remove Trump from office, six days after the Capitol Hill protests on Jan. 12, 2021. 

According to CNN, as Pence sat awaiting an interview with filmmaker Alex Holder, the former vice president was shown an email by a member of his staff that allegedly "demands" Pence remove Trump from office. 

The clip then catches Pence saying, "Yeah, excellent," while smirking and asking his aid to, "Tell Zach to print me off a hard copy for the trip home." 

Pence then turns to the camera and begins the interview, saying, "I'm always hopeful about America… I always believe that America's best days are yet to come, and I still believe that." 

On the same evening of the interview, the House passed the resolution calling for "Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from power and deem him unfit for office," according to the liberal network.

However, at the same time, Pence sent a letter to Pelosi saying that he would not push for the impeachment of Trump because it would "set a terrible precedent." 

"Last week, I did not yield to pressure to exert power beyond my constitutional authority to determine the outcome of the election, and I will not now yield to efforts in the House of Representatives to play political games at a time so serious in the life of our nation," Pence's letter read. 

Holder's documentary "Unprecedented" is a three-part docuseries about the 2020 election. It includes interviews with Trump's children, including Ivanka, Don Jr., Eric Trump, as well as the president himself.
