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


#994

Don’t forget EVERYONE is out to get Trump because they hate him so much, including his life long business partners, associates and cabinet members…POTUS is a victim I tell ya!

I always thought in my mind so called conservatives would be the last to support a self appointed “king”

boy was I wrong


#995

If they meant that, then they should have written it in the Amendment.

But they didn’t.


#996

Ah there is the projection…so lets turn this around and see how conan is lubing the truth…

The reality is trump and his administration are traitors to the nation by trying to lift sanctions on russia for money and power…among other things…
But in order to throw shade on that fact we have his supporters accusing people of sedition and being a traitor…

Which is fairly stupid but not uncommon

25th Amendment, Section 4, in its entirety :
“4. 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.
Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and
the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability
exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a
majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body
as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days 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. Thereupon
Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty eight hours for that purpose if
not in session. If the Congress, within twenty one days after receipt of the latter written
declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty one days after Congress is
required to assemble, determines by two thirds vote of both Houses that the President is
unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue
to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the
powers and duties of his office.”

That’s it. No reference to “proof” or “evidence” that I can see. You? Apparently, like “high crimes and misdemeanors”, it’s whatever the appropriate federal officers think it is.

ETA: You’re welcome! :grin:

Ah yes…claim its something and then claim they are above and nothing will get done because reasons…

Classic…


#1000

Youve been on here for about 20 years…


#1001

Yeah we get it…do you have anything else? Repeating the same thing for 50 posts doesnt move anything along


#1002

Pretty clear that Trump has a fantastic ability to recruit enormously emotional support. Very emotional.


#1003

Lol…hahahahahahahaa…ahhhhhh thats funny.


#1004

Notice that, not a single time, mentions that those invoking the 25th must provide evidence of the inability. Just that the required personnel declare THAT he unable. This is mentioned at least twice in article 4.


#1005

My interpretation is that Trump supporters are more concerned with the will of many, who voted honestly, than the will of the arrogant few, who had prejudiced agents among them, believing that they knew better than the deplorables.


#1006

NK is not firing rockets off because they don’t need to. They did all the misses testing they needed to do under Trump’s watch. They are still doing everything else in building their nuclear armament up.


#1007

The will of the many would mean a President Clinton.

But we are a Republic so we don’t do that.


#1008

No my friend. You’re confused with the will of California.


#1009

California is part of “the many”


#1010

The will of the electoral college. Republicans have a hard time getting the actual support of the people.

2 of their last three winning presidential elections couldn’t muster the support of the majority of the people.


#1011

There’s a reason a lot of The People live in California, rather than Dipweed, NC. You seem to be confused about the definition of The People: it’s not just people you approve of.


#1012

Cool story…


#1013

Keep those :sunglasses: on. You’ll need 'em when the dawn comes.


#1014

The will of the many? The will of the many didn’t want Trump anywhere near the White House.

The “arrogant” few are doing nothing but trying to expose Trump so that the entire nation may understand what he is to our country.
