Nancy Pelosi Is Pushing for Second Trump Impeachment

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote in a letter to Democrats on Sunday that, even though Biden’s inauguration is set for January 20, her party will take steps this week in the House to remove President Trump, beginning with a call for Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to declare that the President is unable to successfully discharge the duties of his office. If Republicans block the move, Democrats will vote on the bill on Tuesday and impeachment later this week. Pelosi also asked Democrats for their views on a section of the 14th Amendment, regarding the removal of members who “have engaged in insurrection or rebellion.” Newly elected progressive Representative Cori Bush is introducing a resolution to “expel the members of Congress who tried to overturn the election and incited a white-supremacist coup attempt that has left people dead.” -GEG

Democrats will take steps this week in the House to remove President Donald Trump, beginning with a call for Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25 Amendment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a letter to Democrats on Sunday.

The resolution would call on Pence “to immediately use his powers under section 4 of the 25th Amendment to convene and mobilize the principal officers of the executive departments in the Cabinet to declare what is obvious to a horrified Nation: That the President is unable to successfully discharge the duties and powers of his office.”

If Republicans block the move, Democrats will vote on the bill on Tuesday and impeachment later this week.

“We are calling for the Vice President to respond in 24 hours,” Pelosi wrote, regarding Pence and the 25th Amendment.

Democrats will hold a private caucus call at 2 p.m. ET.

Dershowitz: FBI and DOJ Deep State Attempted a Coup to Oust Trump Using the 25th Amendment



Former FBI Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe, told Scott Pelley on “60 Minutes” that Attorney General Rod Rosenstein proposed invoking the 25th Amendment to oust President Trump in 2017, and that Rosenstein was counting potential supporting votes of cabinet members.  Lawyer Alan Dershowitz said that the 25th Amendment is for emergencies when the president is unable to perform his duties, and is not meant to circumvent the impeachment process. 

Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz compared attempts to use the
25th Amendment against President Donald Trump to a coup d’etat and said
Thursday the measure is being abused.

“If [former FBI Deputy
Director Andrew McCabe’s claims are] true, it is clearly an attempted
coup d’etat,” Dershowitz said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” (RELATED: Rosenstein Held Meetings On Removing Trump With 25th Amendment, Wearing Wire Into Oval Office)

Dershowitz said
the 25th Amendment has nothing to do with special counsel Robert
Mueller’s investigation into Trump’s possible ties to Russia and said
critics of the president are conflating the issues in an attempt to
remove him from office.

“Let’s take the worst case scenario.
Let’s assume the president of the United States was in bed with the
Russians, committed treason, committed obstruction of justice — the 25th
Amendment simply is irrelevant to that. That’s why you have an
impeachment provision,” he said. “The 25th Amendment is about [former
President] Woodrow Wilson having a stroke. It’s about a president being
shot and not being able to perform his office. It’s not about the most
fundamental disagreements. It’s not about impeachable offenses.”
