Pelosi Questioned About HER Sanity After 25th-Amendment Scrutiny of Trump

'The public needs to know the health condition of the president...'

(Headline USA) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is questioning President Donald Trump‘s fitness to serve, announcing legislation Thursday that would create an unconstitutional commission to allow Congress to intervene under the 25th Amendment to the Constitution and remove the president from executive duties.

But almost immediately after announcing the bill, which she said she plans to discuss with media on Friday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said in an interview on Mark Levin’s radio show that he and a number of his House colleagues plan to bring scrutiny against the Speaker and her mental condition. He did not provide details.

Last month the conservative House Freedom Caucus urged McCarthy to bring a motion to remove Pelosi from her post as Speaker.

House Republican Whip Steve Scalise addressed Pelosi’s irrational antics on “Fox & Friends” Friday morning:

She has been fixated for the last four years with overturning the results of the last election. And here she is again on the heels of Vice President Pence winning handily in the debate against Kamala Harris.

She’s now trying to overturn the results of next month’s election. She’s wanted to remove President Trump from office because she doesn’t agree with the people’s choice from the last election. Look, they started with the Russia hoax. They did impeachment. This is what she’s spent and wasted her Speakership on.

She should be fighting for families and small businesses, not trying to overturn the results of the election because she knows how well President Trump’s doing. And, by the way, what a signal that is to Joe Biden that she’s spending her time trying to remove President Trump from office because clearly she must not have confidence in Joe Biden’s abilities.

Just weeks before the Nov. 3 election, Pelosi said Trump needs to disclose more about his health after his COVID-19 diagnosis. She noted Trump’s “strange tweet” halting talks on a new coronavirus aid package and said Americans need to know when, exactly, he first contracted COVID as others in the White House became infected. On Friday, she plans to roll out the legislation that would launch the commission for review.

“The public needs to know the health condition of the president,” Pelosi said, later invoking the 25th Amendment, which allows a president’s cabinet or Congress to intervene when a president is unable to conduct the duties of the office.

Trump responded swiftly via Twitter.

“Crazy Nancy is the one who should be under observation. They don’t call her Crazy for nothing!” the president said.

The president’s opponents have discussed invoking the 25th Amendment for some time.

Trump says he “feels great” after being hospitalized and is back at work in the White House. Trump plans to resume campaigning soon.

Any serious consideration of the measure is not going to happen, so Pelosi’s move is best characterized as a political stunt with less than a month before Election Day. The bill serves as a political tool to stoke questions from a biased media about Trump’s health as his own White House is hit by an outbreak infecting top aides, staff and visitors, including senators.

On Friday, Pelosi along with Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., a constitutional law professor, plan to roll out the legislation that would create a commission as outlined under the 25th Amendment, which was passed by Congress and ratified in 1967 as way to ensure a continuity of power in the aftermath of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

Raskin is famous for being on record that he planned to impeach Trump before his inauguration.
