What happened to Russia? For two solid years now, Democrats have insisted that Trump colluded with Russia and that they would use this as a reason to impeach Trump and possibly remove him from office.
Yet now, Elizabeth Warren is talking about using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump, which would only be appropriate if Trump was somehow physically or mentally incapacitated.
The Hill reports:
Warren: Officials have duty ‘to invoke 25th amendment’ if they think Trump is unfit
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass), a 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful, on Sunday said that Trump administration officials have a constitutional duty to invoke the 25th Amendment if they believe the president cannot fulfill his job, saying their loyalty should be to “the Constitution” and not to the president.
“My point here is that if they believe that Donald Trump cannot fulfill the obligations of his office, then they have a constitutional responsibility to invoke the 25th Amendment,” Warren said during a news conference after a rally in Las Vegas, according to The Nevada Independent.
“Their loyalty under law is not to him personally. It is to the Constitution of the United States and to the people of United States.”
The comments from Warren came days after CBS aired a segment of an interview with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in which he said top Justice Department officials discussed launching an effort to invoke the 25th Amendment to force Trump out of office following former FBI Director James Comey’s firing in May 2017.
The economy is doing great and unemployment is low, but if you listen to Warren you would believe we were living in a depression:
It’s time for Democrats to declare who we are. We are the party of the people. We are the party that believes that every kid should get a fighting chance to build a future. We're going to take 2020 as our chance to build a movement and change this country for the better.

Warren is trying desperately to deflect attention from the Native American story she just can’t shake.
USA Today reports:
‘An apology from the heart’: Sen. Elizabeth Warren sorry for identifying as Native American
Sen. Elizabeth Warren apologized Wednesday for “not having been more sensitive about tribal citizenship” after The Washington Post published a 1986 Texas bar registration card where she listed her race as “American Indian.”
“I’m not a tribal citizen,” the Massachusetts Democrat told reporters. “My apology is an apology for not having been more sensitive about tribal citizenship and tribal sovereignty. I really want to underline the point, tribes and only tribes determine tribal citizenship.”
It was at least the third time in a week that Warren – who is part of the large Democratic field running to unseat President Donald Trump in 2020 – has apologized for her past self-identification.
“I can’t go back,” Warren told the Post in response to the story about her Texas bar registration. “But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.”
This is going to follow her into 2020 and beyond.
