Andrew McCabe: 25th Amendment was discussed by Justice Department to remove Trump from office


#932

Here is the first part of section 4 of the 25th amendment, the initial act of the “sedition “

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Please point out where evidence is required.


#934

their written declaration


#935

Please point out the requirement that the written declaration requires evidence.


#936

Perhaps the seditionists were the ones afraid of the Mueller investigation…


#937

Q… trust the plan.


#938

Yes, it is your opinion. We know.


#939

“Q”? What does that mean?


#940

No, it doesn’t.

A majority of the cabinet transmits their declaration.
The president transmits his declaration that he is able.
The majority of the cabinet transmits their declaration again.
The congress votes. If 2/3 agree with the cabinet, POTUS is removed. Otherwise he stays.

The reason they think he’s unfit could literally be because they think he’s a poopy head.


#941

Nobody was attempting to overthrow an election. Being God-wedded to a President doesn’t mean he’s perfect or invulnerable to being removed with reason. And that’s what they were examining.


#942

Wrong. It says unable. Not poopy head. Not unfit.

But have a nice day.

Please don’t defend seditionists.


#943

Still no response to my impeachment of Andrew Johnson post…which was done with absolutely ZERO evidence of any high crimes and misdemeanors and if successful would have removed the President and replaced him with a man who was in a group of the President’s staunchest foes.

FAR beyond two guys in a room discussing how they MIGHT go about getting 25-4 invoked, which faced a long hard road and even if it succeeded in removing Trump, would have replaced Trump with his ally Pence.

These guys- who had no actual power to do anything…were a threat to our Republic…but the Congress was just “exercising its power of impeachment”.


#944

No, no. They don’t need a reason. Your little friends said so.

Impeach him. He has never been unable to perform his duties.

Don’t defend seditionists.


#945

Impeachment is not under discussion.

Why are they lying about it?


#946

it is under discussion.

I made it a part of the discussion.

Andrew Johnson’s political foes in the House used impeachment not because they though Johnson was guilty of any high crimes and misdemeanors, but because they hated him and he was blocking what they wanted to do.

Seditionists or not?


#947

The 25th does not demand a written summary of the inability. It just demands certain people state THAT he is unable.


#948

No, it is not. They were not plotting impeachment.


#949

And the only thing that constitutionally matters is whether a majority of the cabinet and 2/3 of congress agree that being a poopy head makes him unable. The only thing.


#950

Sedition.


#952

The Radical Republicans were…and they did so.

Seditionists or not?


#953

It doesn’t define unable. That’s left to the cabinet and Congress to decide.
