As the democrats’ manufactured drama continues to ratchet skyward, President Trump is taking flak from all corners of the the Beltway.
It was mere days ago that we were treated to a stupendous tale by the New York Times, of a “resistance” insider snatching paperwork off of the desk of the President in an act of brazen treachery. The anonymous actor was heralded as some sort of hero in the liberal press, with the mainstream media using this anti-American activity as a dog whistle for their impeachment hounds.
Now, after credibility issues within the New York Times itself have cast doubt on the story’s factuality, one left leaning legislator is skipping the formalities of impeachment and going straight for the often misunderstood 25th Amendment.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren is calling on Trump administration officials to invoke the 25th Amendment as a means of removing the president from office.
Section 4 of the constitutional amendment says that if the vice president and a majority of Cabinet members determine that the president is unable to “discharge the powers and duties of his office,” then they can oust him and make the vice president acting president.
“If senior administration officials think the president of the United States is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment,” said the Massachusetts Democrat, expected to run for president in 2020.
“The Constitution provides for a procedure whenever the vice president and senior officials think the President can’t do his job,” Warren said. “It does not provide that senior officials go around the president — take documents off his desk, write anonymous op-eds. … Every one of these officials have sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States. It’s time for them to do their job.”
This isn’t the first time that the 25th Amendment has been suggested as a way for the left to dethrone The Donald, but it certainly feels like the most desperate attempt yet coming from Warren, whose petty feud with the President has gone on for far too long.
