The left simply cannot accept that President Trump won! Their latest effort to remove him from his duly-elected office is a cabal of Congressional Democrats pushing a bill to establish a committee to remove the president from office.
The Blaze reports:
But because those allegations are almost completely unfounded, a group of two dozen congressional Democrats are now supporting an effort to remove Trump from the White House using the Constitution’s 25th Amendment.
Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) earlier this year introduced a bill that proposes to create a congressional “oversight” panel to investigate whether or not Trump is “incapacitated.” If the panel declares Trump mentally unable to carry out the duties of his office, then they can remove him from office.
Section 4 of the 25th Amendment allows a majority of the president’s Cabinet, along with the vice president, to determine the president is “unable to discharge the powers and duties,” then provide that determination in writing to Congress resulting in the president being dismissed from office. This is the only section of the 25th Amendment that has never been used.
But Raskin’s bill highlights some largely overlooked language in Section 4 of the 25th Amendment. In addition to a majority of the president’s Cabinet, the amendment also allows a majority of Congress to reach the same conclusion to remove the president — along with the vice president’s approval, still.
In either of these cases, once the president is determined to be “incapacitated,” the vice president immediately becomes acting president.
