I suspect there is more to Pence not invoking it other than loyalty,
but then I dunno.

Pence is just trying to position himself for a 2024 run, if he was to do anything to bring down Trump he would forever lose the support of the Trump supporters.
No real surprise in him refusing to invoke the 25th.

If Trump does not make some kind of move while he is still in the job, it don't look good.
Is this some kind of sting operation to get those involved in the Biden inauguration surrounded bu 15k troops for a clean arrest? Or is it just some way Biden can get someone to show up calling a state of emergency in DC? What is General Millie going to?
There's exactly zero possibility of Trump gaining control of 'the troops' at this late (and ending) stage of his presidency

The Constitution doesn't define what high crimes and misdemeanors are. It leaves it for Congress to define. High crimes and misdemeanors are whatever Congress says are high crimes and misdemeanors. That's why impeachment is a political process, not a judicial process. Likewise, the 25th Amendment is about medical disabilities. Its implementation is neither political or judicial.
That definately qualifies Biden for invocation of the 25th.
physically and mentally incapable to hold office.

The only reason why Pence and other Republicans aren't in support of invoking the 25th amendment is because they are scared of losing the votes of the Trumpsters
