The House this week will take up a resolution to impeach President Donald Trump for the second time in less than two years over his actions encouraging a mob that stormed the Capitol, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.
“In protecting our Constitution and our Democracy, we will act with urgency, because this President represents an imminent threat to both,” Pelosi said in a letter Sunday to House Democrats. “As the days go by, the horror of the ongoing assault on our democracy perpetrated by this President is intensified and so is the immediate need for action.”
Pelosi said Democratic leaders on Monday will request unanimous consent for a separate resolution urging Vice President Mike Pence to convene the cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution “to declare the President incapable of executing the duties of his office.” She said Pence should respond within 24 hours.
More than 200 House Democrats have signed on to co-sponsor an impeachment resolution accusing Trump of “Incitement of Insurrection,” and says he engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors by “willfully inciting violence against the government of the United States” in connection with the storming of the Capitol Wednesday by throngs of his supporters.
The 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution states that
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.
This amendment was put in place to ensure a legal and aboveboard transfer of power incase the President were to become incapacitated to the point to where he could not fulfill his duties.
It was never meant to be used as a political weapon by one political party to get a president in good health out of the way, disgracing him just days before his term ends.
Speaking of political weapons, regarding Nancy Pelosi’s call to impeach President Trump AGAIN…according to constitution.congress.gov…
At the time of ratification of the Constitution, the phrase high crimes and misdemeanors thus appears understood to have applied to uniquely political offenses, or misdeeds committed by public officials against the state. Alexander Hamilton, in explaining the Constitution’s impeachment provisions, described impeachable offenses as arising from the misconduct of public men, or in other words from the abuse or violation of some public trust. Such offenses were Political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself. In the centuries following the Constitution’s ratification, precisely what behavior constitutes a high crime or misdemeanor has been the subject of much debate.
Because of the vagueness of the definition of the phrase “high crimes and misdemeanors”, Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat Elite and the Vichy Republicans are using President Trump’s speech in which he invited the crowd to go and “peacefully protest” in front of the Capitol Building as a means to ensure that he can not run for President in 2024 and kick their butts again.
I cannot even imagine what it must have been like for President Trump and his family to have been subjected to the treatment which they have received since he declared that he was going to run for President.
I have never seen a United States President and his family subjected to the degradation and barbaric treatment which Donald J. Trump and his family have had to endure.
And now, after the Democrats and their Vichy Republican stooges have succeeded in driving Trump from office via means of an obviously rigged election, they want to pile on, in a display of tone-deaf arrogance that makes their cries for “unity” hysterically funny…if they weren’t so maddeningly sickening.
I believe that Pelosi and that bunch of losers who consider themselves to be “the smartest people in the room” are trying to goad average Americans living in the Heartland into another Civil War.
At this point, anything is possible.
Until He Comes,
